We are extremely pleased to have had not one, but two of our short films selected for screening at the first Cinema Bibliotheque event at LAMP in the beautiful town of Leamington Spa. The programme features, amongst others, work by our friend and collaborator Lauren Hatchard, as well as the latest short film from one of the finest purveyors of the form Brian Harley. It promises to be a fantastic evening filled with brilliant films created by immensely talented people. We are thrilled to be going, so why don’t you join us?
Our films that will be playing include Graduate Decline, our satirical swipe at higher education policy in the UK. With the exorbitant cost of tuition fees, exceptionally high levels of graduate unemployment and student dissatisfaction with courses still a major issue, Graduate Decline has sadly only become more relevant nearly three years after the film was shot. It was previously screened on the BBC Birmingham Big Screen, but come catch it in Leamington! It will be joined by The Iron Lady, our lampoon of the Meryl Streep lead Oscar winning original. It will be the first time the film has been screened before audiences since Margaret Thatcher’s death earlier this month, which is sure to result in an interesting response. To some the idea of watching a man in drag play Maggie Thatcher may have lost its funny side; to others, it will be a timely thumbing of the nose at attempts to portray Mrs T both before and after her demise as a kind of superwoman. Why don’t you come down and decide for yourself? It will mark the third screening of the film, first at Birmingham ArtsFest, and last month at the lively local film nights put on by Roots To Shoots.
So, do you fancy coming down? We realise it is short notice, but as there will be plenty of shorts to notice we would be delighted to see you there! The event starts at 7pm at LAMP (the Hybrid:two building) in Leamington Spa and lasts until 10:30pm. Tickets cost £4, which is a steal for so many fabulous films to feast your eyes upon.
