OPENING NIGHT: Now! That's What I Call '80s Short Film

18:30 Fri 11 Jan 2019

ICA

The Eighties! British artists were young, emboldened and equipped with just a camcorder. Helming a loose festival-wide retrospective of the decade and the tenacity that came to define its makers, we present the formative calling cards of the decade’s graduating class, now established prolific British directors among the industry’s greats.

From the early experiments of Clio Barnard and Andrew Kötting, to the playful parody of Sally Potter, to the thoroughly low budget period drama of Harry Potter’s David Yates, these films are rebellious, rough around the edges and speak to the Eighties’ nurturing of burgeoning creative talent.

We will welcome many of the directors for a post-screening Q&A. 83’
