NEW SHORTS: Lo-Budget Mayhem

This event has ended.

16:30 Sat 11 Jan 2020

Regent Street Cinema

A returning crowd-pleaser, LSFF brings you the short and the strange of frugal filmmaking.

Limited budgets meet limitless ingenuity, from online exploits - with cults founded on YouTube conspiracy theories and the famously anonymous art collective NEOZOON’s latest political takedown - to Greta Gerwig-esque rom coms and unsolicited dick pics. Wild visual rides through and through, these films are testament to the magic that happens when DIY directors stretch their limited resources. Programmed by Philip Ilson. 98’
