On Thursday the 26th of September I had the pleasure of attending an indie film screening run by the guys over at Cinebooth. It was held only a minute’s walk from Barbican tube station in Central London. When I arrived I was greeted by a pleasant woman called Nadine and she directed me into the mysterious Ophelia's Cocktail Lounge (which is situated in The Shakespeare Pub) for the Cinebooth event.
After a good amount of time networking, the films began and everyone was glued to their seats. I must give an honourable mention to Melanie Grams for her experimental short titled ‘Wonder’. This short had beautiful cinematography but also a very powerful inner message. You can watch Melanie's film here. In addition, Norman Tamkivi's 'The Border' was a harrowing post-apocalyptic drama that reflects modern political issues. A trailer for Norman's film can be found here.
I’m most looking forward to attending their networking event on the 8th of October, where they have an open mic and 'show and tell' theme. Here you get a chance to pitch your ideas to the crowd, offer your talents/skills or ask for particular help on a project. You also get the chance to show off a segment of your work so it’s an ideal way of getting yourself out there.
Harry, one of Cinebooth’s founders, informed me of a Halloween themed event on the 30th of October, as well as events being held in November and a Christmas event at the end of the year. If you want to keep up with Cinebooth events or even sign up to their free online platform where you can create your own profile then do check out their website or Facebook page.
