Hi I’m Will King – a 2007 grad from this School and I’m involved in organising the Lincoln Shorts 2014 film festival. It’s a relaxed, yearly showing of short films (5mins or less) that are connected to the city in some way, whether they were produced here or made by people who live or study in Lincoln. The content ranges hugely from thought-provoking documentaries to CGI snowball fights, so everything is welcome!
Anybody in Lincolnshire with anything worth watching is encouraged to submit what they have – it doesn’t matter whether it’s amateur or professional, filmed on a phone or DSLR – if others might enjoy seeing it, send it in. This co-production was from 2013, which was the first collaboration between Ormeson Films and Short Cut Films.
There are only two criteria for submitting video to Lincoln Shorts – it must have a local connection, and it must be less than five minutes long. Film-makers can find out more and submit their material here at Lincoln Shorts.
Heading up the event is organiser Tim Johns: We were blown away by the support at previous Lincoln Shorts events. I don’t think people realise how much filmmaking is happening right on their doorstep – this is their chance to come and see it. We’ll screen some amazing short films in October, but people shouldn’t be put off submitting their own material because they don’t think it’s good enough, our team is keen to look at everything Lincolnshire has to offer.
18th October | doors open 7pm | screening 8pm | live music from ‘The Warbirds‘ | Tickets £5 | Lincoln Drill Hall, Freeschool Lane, LN2 1EY |
