Anyone Short Film
"Anyone" is a 10-12 minute comedy-drama film that explores the relationship between the societal pressures on men to be ‘masculine’ and the sexualization of women often which stems from it. To be clear, the film is not a parody, but rather a drama with elements of comedy to highlight some matters of impudence which have become so common. The film follows two intertwining stories: Rosie, a young woman navigating her way through a world of misrepresentation, judgements, expectations and violence towards her gender. The other follows Sam, a socially-conscious young man who endeavors to do his best to do what’s right even when it means standing up to his friends. Co-Writer and Co-Director: Kenzie Armstrong Co-Writer and Co-Director: Nejla Karić ROSIE: Shauna Ridgard SARA: Leah Kirby SAM: Jonathan Clarke-Hesson CHUCK: Robbie Smith JAMES: David Archer

The Sheriff of Galway Bay is a 3 minute live action short shot on 16mm film by students at the University of Westminster, whose alumni recently won an Oscar for Best Live Action Short Film. Written by: Michael Upson Directed by: Ben Wilson Produced by: Greta Spöhrer It's New York in the 1920s. A dishevelled bar has been converted into a small, silent film cinema. A western film is being projected, containing two makeshift puppets in the garb of stereotypical cowboys. The film is accompanied by a light piano score played by Dennis Kilkenny, a scrappy young man in an ill-fitting suit and tie. A sparse audience of three is staring blankly but incessantly at the screen. Behind the projector stands The Boss, a large muscular man surrounded by a cloud of cigar smoke. The music builds as the puppets compete in a shoot-out, the story continues in an exaggerated, over-the-top manner. But then he stops, the tune dwindling away into nothing. The audience don't react. The Boss angrily indicating to him to carry on. Dennis is torn between the oppressive nature of his job and pursuing his passion, playing what's in his heart. He soon learns that he is not alone and that his music won't always be unappreciated.
