Shortlist:

The Pandrix – a film by Sara Procter and Oliver Bradley-Baker

Hilbre Island - a film by Andrew Chonfelder

Hilbre Island is a priceless sliver of wilderness a stone throw from the heart of Liverpool, a timeless place of refuge for all those who know it. Like a faded postcard from a half remembered summer, this film is a Proustian moment disguised as a natural history film.

Save Our NHS - a film by Hazuan Hashim and Phil Maxwell

A short documentary about the response of Liverudlians during Jeremy Corbyn’s recent visit to the City.

Knobbly Bobbly – a film by Laurence McSherry

A dark comedy set in the North West. Knobbly Bobbly tells the story of Paul, a 40-something ice cream van driver who must give a talk at his daughters school for career day. The only catch is, Paul deals in a little more than selling ice cream on a sunny day out of his van.  

Holes in their Soles – a film by Andy Smith 

Fact is stranger than fiction this film, which is about a true urban myth.

Jack Peace – a film by Harry Sherriff

Jack Peace. Cleaning the mean streets of Greater Manchester est. 1988.

NA NA NA NA NA NA NA NA NA NA NA NA NA NA BATTEY – a film by Laura O’Neill

Animation tells the story of a character called Henry as a point of departure to investigate prevalent existential anxieties. Juggling the horizontal plane of possibilities, caught by the river, fluff and dust blown in the wind. 

On the night, Nick Moss will be joined by fellow panellists, industry professionals Clare Binns, Director of Programming & Acquisitions at Picturehouse Cinemas; Lynn Saunders,  Manager of Liverpool Film Office; and Martin Wallace International Emmy and Royal Television Society award winner and BAFTA nominee for a Q&A where the audience are invited to ask questions about filmmaking.
