Michael Caton Jones: My Essential Short Film
16:00 Sat 1 Jun 2013
Michael Caton-Jones is the director of such films as Shooting Dogs, Scandal, Rob Roy, Memphis Belle and The Jackal. So what does an aspiring film director do to fast-track a career and race ahead of the pack? Simple. He shoots a great first 45-minute film whilst at film school, which gets bought by Channel 4 and shown at European festivals. And then he makes another classy, clever short film in Glasgow (starring Ewen Bremner). It seems apt that Michael will be hosting one of our ‘My Essential Short Film’ Sessions, discussing why some of the great shorts should not be forgotten and why all aspiring filmmakers should see them.
