straight 8 squared at london short film festival

we're showing the best 20 films of straight 8 2011 vs. 20 classic straight 8s from the last decade, side by side on one screen.

you can pick which film to listen to on wireless headphones (a la 'silent disco'). It’s a totally unique experience.

huge thanks go to 750 audio post-production and to audio network production music who’ve made these audacious audio antics possible.

our straight 8 squared screening at the LSFF last year went down a storm, so this one is not to be missed.

it’s an all-new program, none of the films have been seen in this way before and loads of the cream of straight 8 filmmakers will be there.

admission £6 on the door or at
