The Cornwall Film Festival has announced a package feature-length films which were nominated in the British Short Film and British Short Animation categories at this year’s EE British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA to you) Awards.
The films will be premiered in Cornwall at The Poly Cinema, Falmouth on May 22 at 7.30pm as part of new festival director Louise Fox‘s ongoing work to champion British-based filmmaking talent and inspire audiences.
This eclectic mix of promising talent and fresh ideas includes Sleeping With The Fishes the winner for Best Short Animation. Directed by Yousif Al-Khalifa it tells the story of Sonja and her lonely life as a fishmonger. More at ease with her fish than her customers until one day a delivery man turns up who looks like a rainbow trout.
Keeping Up With the Jones’s is an ambitious film when the impeccable wife of an MP confronts the imprisoned reality of her life after being taken hostage by two of her husband’s ‘business associates’.
Winner of the Best Short Film, Room 8, directed by James W Griffiths is a mini feature about a prisoner who makes a fantastical discovery when thrown into a cell with a terse and unsettling inmate; but in an audacious endeavour to escape his captors, he unearths a malevolent trick and the secrets of the cell are fully revealed.
