You can’t spell slaughter without laughter. One of many things you’ll learn at our Laughter Live screening and comedy evening!
We’ll be screening 5 dark and surreal short films at The Proud Archivist on 13th November, followed by a live stand up performance featuring the off-kilter antics of Beth Vyse and Adam Hess.
This is one of two events in our 2015 programme that will be held at the fantastic Proud Archivist. Sitting pretty on the Regent’s Canal in Haggerston, The Proud Archivist is an inspiring blend of gallery, café, bar/restaurant and event space, founded to reflect and represent the interests and passions of the people of Hackney. Needless to say, we couldn’t be PROUDER (sorry) to be partnering them for this year’s festival!
So paint your funny bones black, warm up your awkward giggle and come help us make light of the darkness!
Tickets avaliable via Eventbrite

Full 2015 Programme
Great news aspiring filmmakers, Greenhorn is joining forces with London Film Academy for our Industry Day on Saturday 14 November. London Film Academy’s courses offer extensive hands-on experience in the six key disciplines of filmmaking: directing, editing, screenwriting, producing, cinematography and sound. For Greenhorn 2015 they will be offering a workshop focusing on the producing side. This will be perfect for emerging filmmakers who want to get an overview on how to produce their own shorts from pre-production all the way through to distribution. The workshop will be just part of a string of industry events taking place at the thriving cultural hub that is Hackney’s Proud Archivist. It promises to be a stimulating day allowing filmmakers to meet peers and industry professionals in a friendly environment.
We are excited to announce that for this year’s festival we will be joining forces with Bertha DocHouse, for a special documentary screening at the newly renovated Curzon Bloomsbury. Nurturing and educating new filmmaking talent is at the heart of what Bertha DocHouse do, they offer aspiring doc filmmakers the chance to meet and learn from some of the most respected names in the documentary world through masterclasses, courses and educational strands. This will be your chance to experience some of the best short docs out there in one of the coolest Cinema spaces the capital has to offer.
