Since 2014, local video production company Candle And Bell have been giving budding local and filmmakers the opportunity to showcase their short films. What better place to have a screening than the North East’s very own historic, movie treasure trove, the Tyneside Cinema.

The event has returned for 2016 and the first of the year will take place on Monday 8th February, showing five shorts from some of the most talented filmmakers the region has to offer, allowing them some much needed exposure within an ultra competitive industry and offering up some visual treats for us lucky viewers.

There’s a fantastic selection of flicks to get your cinematic juices flowing this time round – Benjamin Bees’ comedy drama Sebastian And Them sees a man trying to let go of his childhood dolls; Johnny Vegas rents a hitman over the web in Tom Marshall’s comedy horror Dark Net; Rest Stop is an existential comedy from Kate Herron in which a backpacker bumps into a man claiming to be her guardian angel…in a service station; Racheal Tunnard’s Emotional Fusebox has already been widely acclaimed and was nominated for a BAFTA last year and Stockton-based director Andy Berriman’s partially crowd-funded drama A Six And Two Threes delves into the wonderful idiosyncrasies of the Teesside dialect and its working class roots in a coming of age tale.
