The festival runs from Thursday 9 – Sunday 12 March and features 145 short films by young artist filmmakers made as part of the Random Acts initiative across the country, in one interactive exhibition.
The works are presented on a large projection screen as well as across interactive video monitors on which you can choose from the full selection of films, and this is the first time that all of the young filmmakers’ work has been screened together in one place.
The exhibition is free and open to the public in the ICA Theatre for the duration of the festival, and features alongside a public programme of filmmaking workshops, guest talks and events drawing attention to opportunities for young people and the quality and range of the films produced.
The festival will be followed by the national Playback Tour: in association with Random Acts, exhibiting the films across the length and breadth of the country in a range of venues. Confirmed locations include Leeds and Newcastle with more venues to be announced.
