Star Spotting

Many of the short films screened by us at bang! have been made by directors and writers who have gone on to feature film success - - "Dead Man's Shoes", Chris Cooke "One for the Road" and Simon Ellis - who has a major new film in development as we speak. This is the place to come to catch the stars of tomorrow.
