COMPETITION: Try To Make A Home Out Of You

This event has ended.

13:00 Sat 13 Jan 2018

Curzon Soho

Home is where the heart is, the place we feel the deepest affection for. But it’s not always a happy place, as these powerful short films illustrate. With strong performances by Fiona O’Shaughnessy (Nina Forever), and Kate Dickie (Red Road, The Witch, Couple in a Hole) amongst the pack, these films show a darker side to home life. 92 mins

This competition programme also screens at Rich Mix on Tuesday 16th January
