The late September blush of short film that is the Encounters film fest has spawned its first batch of tickets.
You can now browse the programme of short films and buy tickets for those that tantalise your film-loving taste buds, say the Encounters peeps.
The fest runs from September 25 to September 30 in Bristol, and pretty much sets the stall for the coming film year (years run from September to September, right?). So it’s well worth investing time to see what’s what and even drawing up a wish list of what to see.
You could event get a Festival Pass, which for just £85 ‘enables you to book free tickets to all film screenings, International Competition screenings and events between Wednesday 26th and Sunday 30th September.’ Do the maths, and check out the deets.
