Mercury Premiere

Still from Mercury: A short film by Kyla Simone Bruce and Gorana Jovanović

We are excited to announce that Mercury will get its premiere at Encounters Festival in Bristol in September!! It will be screening as part of their International Competition in the "Short Film 5: Do the Right Thing" programme on Thursday 27th September at 16:00.

We are delighted to start our film's festival journey at the UK's leading short film and animation festival and can't wait to catch up with everyone there. And this is just the beginning... FOLLOW us on instagram.

And picking the development work back up on Rachel Maclean's Baby Star.

Exciting to be picking up the development with the support of SFTN and now also participating in the Write4Film scheme too! Rachel Maclean is delivering her hotly anticipated newest work Make Me Up, a new feature-length TV drama to mark a century of the right to vote for women - part of Represent, commissioned by 14-18 NOW - a Hopscotch-NVA co-production to be broadcast on BBC. Its festival premiere now secured for the Autumn!

If you didn't see the recent article on Rachel and her Birmingham Bullring adventures participating on a Channel4's series called Artists in Residence in the Guardian, then do have a read here! And you have 20 days left to watch the film online here. on Channel4-on-demand.

And what else?

Work continues on Gaëlle Denis's The Girl from the Estuary, more news on this project in the autumn. We enjoyed a fabulous premiere of Jane and Louise Wilson's Suspended Island and opening of the Great Exhibition of the North up in Newcastle with a two giant LED-screen installation commissioned by the BALTIC. Amazing drone light-show display and the town full of exciting new exhibitions, concerts and shows. It's on until 9th September.... We will start to send the film to festivals soon.
