We’re all fired up for the last weekend of the 2019 Edinburgh Short Film Festival and to get us in the mood
here’s some stills from last weekend, pics by the talented Clarisse Tenreiro!
In advance of this year’s ESFF, we’re delighted that one of our favourite comedies from yesteryear – Boris in the Forest by Robert Hackett is now online!
With 50 festival screenings and 8 awards and featuring the inimitable Mac McDonald, Boris in the Forest follows a geeky American tourist in search of his horror hero, Boris Karloff and was a favourite at the 2016 ESFF!
BORIS IN THE FOREST
We were delighted to play host to the very charming Barnabas Toth from Budapest whose short film ‘Chuchotage’ screened at the 2018 Edinburgh Short Film Festival and was also Oscar nominated!
A slyly witty romantic comedy staged with care and attention to detail, Chuchotage was one of our favourite comedies of last year and we interviewed him about the film in Edinburgh!
