The Uk Actors Tweetup is about to host a one-of-a-kind short film night that you won’t want to miss. We are bringing ‘The Best of the Fests‘ in association with AIFF to The Garden Cinema on the 20th of August.
We are teaming up with 9 other UK festivals. Of course every year we have lots of favourites, so we thought it would be wonderful to showcase a few of those favourites from some of our double favourite festivals for one brilliant afternoon of short film screenings followed by a quick Q&A with some of the filmmakers (that’s a lot of favourites).
What is so special about the 10 festivals that are coming together? Well, these 10 shorts have been hand-selected from a community of festivals under the AIFF umbrella (more on AIFF soon), which all uphold a similar ethos – we promote the inclusivity of diverse film cultures and encourage emerging, exciting and undiscovered talent in the UK.
We would love you to join us but do hurry as we expect this event will sell out.
Oh and it wouldn’t be a Tweetup if we didn’t hang out at the bar after and talk shop with the other filmmakers and audience. So we intend to do just that! We do hope you’ll be able to hang about.
Tickets are on sale now on The Garden Cinema website: BOOK TICKETS
