MARS-II Invited to Hush Hush Film Night / The Base
Hush Hush Film Night logo
Hello stranger and welcome to my blog. As I type... the rain beats against the window, a child is angry they've been taken to Costa after a hard day at school and that machine used to make smoothies or "ice coolers" is just really really unnecessarily noisy. The summer has clearly ran away and the refreshing British weather is back!
It's always really rewarding to be accepted into a festival or event, the feeling of validation from another filmmaker or judge that they're saying "YES" we want your film and "YES" we want you to represent us - it's truly generous and uplifting. Though I've found recently, it can feel even better when someone discovers and approaches you of their own accord. A few weeks ago the HUSH HUSH FILM NIGHT e-mailed me about my body of work and requested to screen MARS-II at their event on the 26th of September this month! The evening event is set up to help expose and celebrate Leeds-based and affiliated filmmakers with currently six films set to screen (more TBA). Hush Hush will take place at music/visual arts studio THE BASE and is ran by Champion Up North who aim to "support the professional development of musicians and artists in Leeds".
