This film plays as a dream – echoing the bodily experience of liquid processes and electric impulses that flash in light and colour. The film also plays with the elusive nature of memory. Using motifs of flying and swimming that recur in the filmmaker’s dreams – shapes and colours vanish the moment they become conscious.
Micro short. Experimental. Collage. UK Premiere.

Dir: Sofiya Afonasina

“Soup Mix” is an experimental film made by Colorado artist and filmmaker John
Dawson in 2023. This short film is 100% hand made by drawing, painting and scratching directly onto 16mm and Super 8 film stock. My films are all about motion and having fun! I hope people are entertained and energized by all of my films. You can think of it like a ride at the amusement park or view it the same way you might view fireworks or abstract painting.
Experimental. Animation. Collage.

This phone film explores the metaphorical relationship between consumer materials and human biology, looking within the domestic and the mundane to find neurological activity, cellular decay and the battle between health and sickness, with the artist’s personal experiences of grief being reflected in the sound design.

The stop-motion animation music-video created for the song ‘Tell Me Where To Go’ was made using a multi plane camera, and shot in a home studio onboard a boat in London between 2021 and 2023. The music video was directed by independent artist and musician Peter Beatty and filmmaker and editor Joseph Boyle. It was written and produced by Peter Beatty and brings together his visual art and music for the first time, with the song taken from his forthcoming album ‘Different Flowers’, out in 2024.
Experimental. Animation. Music video.

Stop-motion film, inspired very freely by Italo Calvino’s “Mister Palomar”, an astonishing meditation on the act of looking. The director tried to crystallize the visions that this novel, hallucinatory in many ways, had awakened in him, by evoking artists who are dear to him: Arnold Böcklin, Odilon Redon, Méliès, Dora Maar, Georgia O’Keeffe, Mariana Enríquez, Topor, Cocteau, Buñuel, Borges… All artists with the ability to bring out the sublime from the prosaic.
Experimental. Animation. UK Premiere.

Dir: Callum Scott
UK 11mins
