Spotlights: Art & Beyond - 2 April 2014

Whirlygig Cinema’s SPOTLIGHTS is a short film night that shines a light on the work and practice of outstanding new filmmakers.

Every month, three emerging filmmakers are given just 30 minutes each to screen and talk about their films, providing a gripping insight into their background, ideas and filmmaking process. At the end of the night they take part in a Q&A session, giving audiences the chance to probe further.

Each event will offer a specialised focus on a particular genre; from animation to art, drama to documentary, SPOTLIGHTS strives to create a regular meeting place for filmmakers and film-lovers, showcasing hand-picked emerging film talent in a relaxed and intimate environment.

The focus of this month is on art, and beyond. Join us as we explore the more experimental and playful side of film, featuring work by Katerina Athanasopoulou, Sandra Djukic and Temujin Doran.

Doors 7pm / Films start at 7.30pm
Hackney Attic, Hackney Picturehouse, 270 Mare Street, E8 1HE
£4 adv / £5 door / £3 door to badge holders.
