Encounters International Film Festival 16th – 20th November

Featuring 180 films from 31 countries this festival showcases the best short film and animation talent from around the world. Offering five days of screenings, music guests and workshops if your a budding film maker or just a film buff this really is a treat not to be missed. With masterclasses from some of the top names in the industry (NFT/BAFTA). This is an excellent opportunity to network with the best of them. I witnessed a couple of the shorts on the opening night. One that really stood out was ‘God View’ by Director Billy Lumby – who has taken an interesting approach on the camera perspective (hence the name of the film). This is a story about a mentally unstable man called Phillip who lives in Hackney, East London. The POV follows the man around his neighborhood and reveals a story that will keep you on the edge of your seat. A brilliant well shot film with a chilling plot. Here is a taster:

And if that wasn’t enough to send shivers down your spine the Guardian posted the Murder Map of London Boroughs on their website which my friend so kindly sent to me..(thanks Stephane…thanks…),
