Brief, beautiful visions from filmmakers on the way up.

A mysterious door-to-door salesman, a teenage girl in a harrowing predicament, a child caught-up between real and imaginary friends, a young girl on a family holiday, two strangers brought together by a car accident and a repressed sweet-natured guy who starts to flirt with his dark side: from the UK here’s an eclectic ensemble of stories by turns intriguing and touching, charming and imaginative, which won’t fail to grab your attention and stir your emotions.

    Brilliant! The films were amazing and thoroughly entertaining. There's something sinister and gritty which I love about British shorts and the ones shown today were not dissapointing. To pick a favourite I'd have to say 'Jade', I thought it was powerful, well filmed and a good story. Not to say the others didn't have good stories, 'The Happiness Salesman' was excellent, totally unexpected and I thought 'Lovehate' was hilarious. Again, brilliant and being a young film student this makes me even more determined to get where these film makers are now.
