UPDATE - NOW WITH ADDED MAT WHITECROSS
We're very pleased to announce that the hugely awesome Mat Whitecross is coming to introduce the Virgin Media Shorts. We're very excited as he's a) very nice, 2) a superstar feature director and d) a bit of a dish. If that doesn't entice you, nothing will!
Some of you Facebook/Twitter pals might have noticed that our little Reel Presents evening went a bit jet-setter recently with a jaunt over to the creative hub of Amsterdam. Well fear not, we did go over and tickle their artistic synapses with a selection of the best short-form work from the year, but now we’re BACK in the UK and gearing up for our next Café 1001 Presents on Monday Oct 1st.
Joining us this month are our pals at Virgin Media Shorts who are bringing along the ace 13 shortlisted films from this year’s competition. Expect thrills, laughs, tears and gasps in handy 2-minute 20-second bursts. We’ll also be showing our regular programme of signed and unsigned directors – 30 minute selections of awesome shorts, promos and experiments that will make your EYES thank your FEET for bringing you along.
So what are you waiting for? RSVP in the normal fashion, get your bums ready for comfy sofas, your mouths ready for free drinks and your mind ready to be blown.
We’ll see you there!
For those who haven’t been before, The Reel Presents is our monthly showcase of the very best work we’ve seen and posted in the past couple of months. Split between signed and un-signed talent (so you lovable production companies can pluck the fresh fruit), we show a fast-paced mixture of short films, pop promos, fashion/experimental films, branded content and anything else screenable and awesome. It’s all projected in the back room of Café 1001 (comfy sofas and relaxed atmosphere guaranteed) and we even pop a bit of dosh behind the bar to help lubricate your sense-receptors. All in all, a good night.
