Venue: Hullabaloo

The BAFTA-Qualifying Aesthetica Short Film Festival has partnered with BFI Film Audience Network to present the Aesthetica Award-Winning Film Tour; an initiative aimed at bringing cinema to the community and encouraging positive engagement with independent film. Great film encourages us to think differently. It enriches our lives and invites us to see the world in a new way. Film is transformative; it has the power to take us to new places, meet new people, experience new cultures and customs. These powerful films explore contemporary social issues, inspiring life stories and beautifully heart-warming narratives across animation, drama, documentary and dance. The selection features Oscar-nominated and BAFTA-nominated works. Running Order: DOUBLE PORTRAIT (ANIMATION) - Dir. Ian Bruce Double Portrait is a hand-painted animation which portrays the ill-fated relationship between Geraldine Peacock and Bob Gannicott. Created using frame by frame techniques.
