I could be accused of blowing my own trumpet, but this is my blog so there...
The film section of the London Critics' Circle, of which I am member, have announced they will be having their first ever award for Best British Short Film which will be part of the annual Critics' Circle Awards in London on January 17th 2016
This was somewhat spearheaded by myself (again, my blog, so you can hear those trumpets blaring) as I thought it was important to give critics the chance to see some great shorts and also give shorts a bit more recognition. Thanks to some great UK film festivals - Leeds, Encounters, Aesthetica, Glasgow and London SFF - we have 5 great nominees and the chance for UK critics to see some brilliant shorts.
Here's to it becoming an annual fixture and the chance for festivals, critics and short filmmakers to all intersect.
