straight 8 retrospective squared at london short film festival, monday 10th jan

we're showing a retrospective of a decade of straight 8 excellence crammed onto one screen

at the london short film festival

there are so many… we’re showing two at a time - with the audio on switchable headsets
two 4:3 straight 8 films fit perfectly in a cinemascope crop. so it’s meant to be. bonkers. but fun

it's happening at the fabulous roxy bar and screen, at 8pm this monday, 10th january

tickets are £5 on the door

we held our first retrospective2 screening at the ICA last year and it went down a storm so this one is not to be missed

we’ve chosen the film pairings for maximum impact and oddity...

watching a shocking and dark film about a man with a perversion that makes him want to eat parts of his own body preferably served by prostitutes (damnation) while hearing from outside your headphones the other half the cinema roaring with laughter at julia davis and rich fulcher frolicking in their 2008 fetishistic straight 8 caper (black whispers in an elephant sky) is bonkers and totally ace. whew. and that's just one of 21 pairs of films

huge thanks to 750 audio post-production who’ve made the arty audio mayhem possible

loads of the cream of straight 8 filmmakers will be there and it's the perfect place to find inspiration for your straight 8 2011 film

you'll be able to get discounted, on-the-spot entry, and we're raffling off an entry too

be there or be square(d)
