DepicT! at LSFF

Easing the pain of post-holiday reentry, the London Short Film Festival and its projector with teeth return once again with over 200 short films and a whole load of other events at venues across London from THIS FRIDAY!

We’re just chuffed to have been invited back again, and this time we’re gathering our DepicT! friends for one of the festival’s informal Howling Feedback sessions at the Curzon Soho bar on Wednesday, 13 January at 4pm. Since our discussion on the ultra-short film format at Encounters was such a success (apart from wanting more time to chat), we thought we’d try a similar approach this time.

What differentiates a DepicT! film from a viral or a trailer or an episode in a series? Does it even matter? What else can you do with such a teeny amount of time? Our panelists all have made an ultra-short or two in their day and have approached the format in perhaps less conventional ways.

Come along and add your two cents to the conversation, or just pick up a few pointers for your DepicT! ’10 entry…
