'Au Naturel' at In The Woods - 31 August

Now in its 8th year, In The Woods is a special one-day music festival in an enchanted secret woodland location in South East England. Curated and pulled together by the band Laurel Collective, the festival has fast become a watershed show for new talent, including music, art and now film.

We are delighted to be curating the cinema tent for the second year running, to bring festival revellers a magical and diverse selection of short films, music videos and documentaries from some incredibly talented filmmakers, both emerging and established.

Alongside our specially curated programme of nature-themed shorts, Au Naturel, we are honoured to be collaborating with the likes of (in no particular order) London Short Film Festival, Doc Heads, Underwire, Flipside Film Festival, Radar Music Videos and LOCO Film Festival. Our little tent will also play host to live acts The Cabinet of Living Cinema and Magnetic Foragers.

In The Woods is sadly sold-out, but you can get a little taster of our Au Naturel programme below:
