Spotlights: Summer Launch

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. Since April 2012, Spotlights has given a platform to over 50 filmmakers from a wealth of different backgrounds, genres and specialisms. This summer, Whirlygig will return to Hackney Attic with a freshly programmed set of events, running monthly from August 2014 to April 2015.

At a special launch night in July, Whirlygig will offer an exclusive preview of these events, screening a specially curated selection of short films by just some of the 27 filmmakers appearing over the coming months. Enjoy an hour of shorts and stay for a drink afterwards with filmmakers from Spotlights past and future!

Hackney Attic, 270 Mare Street, London, E8 1HE.
Wednesday 2nd July. Doors 7pm / Films 7.30pm. Admission free.
