“Healthily Anarchic”: 9 Days to go until Greenhorn Short Film Festival kicks off


Get down to the beautiful ArtHouse Crouch End cinema (winner of Time Out’s best cinema 2014) on the 11th of November for an inspiring line-up of short films from a festival described by patron Mike Leigh as ‘healthily anarchic’ and ‘a breath of fresh air’. If there’s anyone’s opinion to trust on subversive cinema, it’s his, so this is probably a safe bet.

The 5 days across 3 venues will bring us panel discussions, comedy, workshops, and of course a selection of groundbreaking short films by emerging filmmakers. The festival is also celebrating its 5th birthday which means there’s a healthy amount of drink soirees to network and meet your next producer/editor/similar.

If you’re into Japanese filmmaking, head to Greenhorn’s evening of ‘fantastically weird’ Japanese shorts on the 12th where there will be a mixture of fantasy, fairytale and romance to sink your teeth into. Make your way to The Proud Archivist on the 14th for a bit of stand up comedy and deliciously dark surreal humour in the day, followed by an evening of documentary ‘I Am What I Am’ at Curzon Bloomsbury (the perfect stylish setting for the award-winning shorts on offer).

If you’re a young aspirational filmmaker about to embark on a journey of sleepless nights, 70 hour weeks, make-shift tin foil lighting rigs and bus stop casting sessions, this is inspiration festival for you. Check the full line-up and ticket info here.
