Spotlights - 5 June 2013

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

At each event, three emerging filmmakers are given just half an hour each to showcase and talk about their films, providing a gripping insight into their background, ideas and filmmaking process. At the end of the night they all take part in a Q&A, giving audiences the chance to probe further.

Taking place every month, 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.

Steve Conway

Steve Conway was born and raised in London a couple of turnings from Old Street. Films have always been a big passion in his life and a use for escapism and as a self-taught filmmaker he was also heavily influenced by a 4 year stint working in a photography studio and being around the stills world. His films are a combination of real life and fantasy but are always plot driven.
