Short Film Competition: Be Kind, Unwind

Sunday 12th May, 2024

The Mockingbird Cinema - Screen 1 | 18:15 - 19:40

We all deserve a chance to kick back from time to time. This programme reflects on all the different ways we put our feet up.

Some of us get down to our local community centre (Tennis, Oranges), while others turn to chemical assistance to wind down after a long day (Shrooms and Don’t Forget to Take Medicines on Time). Some of us, even while at the office, can just lay down for a quick forty winks (Powernapper’s Paradise).

However you take a load off, there’s something in this programme for you.
