We can now announce our special guest for next Monday’s Reel Presents – Channel 4’s RANDOM ACTS! If you’re a short-form fan you’re bound to have noticed 4’s outstanding batch of 3-minute content brightening up the evening schedules throughout 2012. We’ve invited the project’s Editor Ravi Amaratunga to select a few of his favourites from the year and talk us through the hows and whys of the curation process. We'll also be having the guest slot at the END of the evening, so the night will run - Unsigned / Signed / Random Acts. It will be ACE!
Believe it or not, November’s Reel Presents will be the last normal screening from us in 2012! Don’t worry, your December won’t be devoid of short-form joy – we’re currently scheming about a tasty Christmas special for you all – but we won’t be following our conventional Guest / Unsigned / Signed line-up.
For this month’s we will have… a guest. Yeah, unfortunately we can’t say any more than that as the full details have yet to be confirmed, but suffice to say you WILL see cool films from AWESOME directors that MAY or MAY NOT have something to do with a festival or screening or something like that. We’ll let you know for sure as soon as we’ve crossed the ‘t’s and dotted the ‘lower case j’s. (See the above update)
One thing we can assure is our usual intoxicating mix of shorts, promos and experiments from the biggest and soon-to-be-biggest-if-we-have-anything-to-do-with-it names in the biz. Also free beer. And sofas. And entry.
So what are you waiting for? If you’re a regular you’ve probably already clicked on the RSVP and are currently smearing the PDF over your smiles – if you’re a ‘I’ll come next month…’ kinda guy/gal, don’t miss out on the last one of the YEAR!
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.
