Over the past two days the Exeter Phoenix have shown international shorts, documentaries and even award winning contemporary short films.
Studio 74 has officially popped its Two Short Nights cherry, and the new cinema space has had plenty of movie enthusiasts’ bottoms on its comfy seats. With all of the screenings out of the way, it was finally time for the Exeter Phoenix Commissions Premiere. (And let’s not forget the bubbly after party!)
As we have come to expect, the films commissioned for this year’s Two Short Nights festival were all of the highest standard and the films screened were: Taking It On (Bishop & Halfacree, 2015), Sunday (Hebe Sutton, 2015), Pine (Smith, 2015), Cloaned (Parncutt, 2015), and Jab Jab The Biggest Band You’ve Never Heard Of (Whittington, 2015).
After a great selection of short films, from some of Devon’s most talented filmmakers, it was finally time for Colour Burn‘s Damo Cross to take to the stage and present the awards for The Best Devon Short Film Commission and Best International Film.
The Best Devon Short Film Commission 2015 award was presented to Cloaned by Paul Parncutt
Best International Film 2015 award was given to… What Do You See? by Scott Willis & John Batty
As another Two Short Nights draws to a close, Exeter’s premiere film festival continues to highlight the talented filmmakers in Devon. The team at Exeter Phoenix should be championed for celebrating local talent, year-in, year-out.
And so, with the awards given out, there was just time for a quick #TwoShortNightsSelfie…
