Short Film Competition: Off Your Chest

Friday 19th May, 2023

The Mockingbird Cinema - Screen 1 | 18:00 - 19:30

Nothing good can come from keeping secrets.

This selection takes a peek at our lies and hidden truths from a range of different perspectives, all proving that honesty really is the best policy. Featuring friendships born from a desire to find buried treasure (The Diamond), schoolgirl crushes with a religious twist (God Level), and a woman with stories so far-fetched they couldn’t possibly be true, right? (Linda), which also just happens to be the world premiere of Joe Lycett's new film.
