Over the past two days the Exeter Phoenix have shown international shorts, documentaries and even award winning contemporary short films.

Each year the team behind Exeter Phoenix’s Two Short Nights film festival go out of their way to put together an eclectic mix of contemporary cinema’s finest shorts.
D&CFilm’s Simon Roger Key called The Nightman of Nevermoor at ‘quirky Spielbergian-romp’, when he reviewed it back in March 2014. Now there’s a new trailer to whet your appetite, pique your interest and tempt you into watching the film which is still making its round of festival, screenings and the like.
Tomorrow is Martha Pinson‘s directorial feature debut, it also marks Martin Scorsese‘s first voyage into British feature film as he takes on an executive producer role. And it even features Devon’s own Joss Stone – as well as Stephen Fry, Stephanie Leonidas, Sebastian Street, Stuart Brennan, Sophie Kennedy‐Clark and Paul Kaye.
Actors often pass into obscurity, even the ones who at one point were the hottest thing in Hollywood; unsurprisingly the world of celebrity is a fickle beast. Take Michael Keaton, who, for a short period of time – in the late ‘80s and early ‘90s – was one of Hollywood’s top leading men; a status indisputably due to his casting in Tim Burton’s Batman (1989).
