Often, short films receive little attention and are disregarded as calling cards for directors or opening acts to feature films. Short films, however, are more than a bland appetizer to the main course; they can capture moments or feelings relatable to all in less than a minute. Latoya Gill and her organisation the Short Film Movement+ are helping audiences discover and rethink short films. This Thursday, Gill and her movement present Songs of Reflection: an event that will screen shorts that appropriately cover the theme of reflection. The soirée will also include a discussion and performances.
The Short Film Movement+ is a space where creative types can come together and explore ideas related to the human condition. The + in the name represents other forms of creative expression utilized in meetings such as poetry, music, and dance. The organisation also aims to promote quality independent films that have either been overlooked or have gathered dust on the shelf.
In keeping with the Short Film Movement +’s underground philosophy, it operates like a speakeasy. The gatherings are held in the basement of the barbershop, We Are Cuts in Soho. Entry price is four pounds (or three if one comes prepared to contribute to the discussion). Guests are also encouraged to bring snacks to share.
Thursday 30th October at We Are Cuts, 33A Dean Street, London, W1D 4PP
PRICE: £4 – £3 TIME: 8PM
Don’t forget to bring a snack!
