David Wilson: Treleddyd Fawr: The Cottage Under The Hill
This film by photographer David Wilson first explores the glorious River Cleddau where he lives and finds much of his inspiration. It then switches focus to cat-loving Glyn Griffiths and his beautiful old cottage Treleddyd Fawr, his lifetime home, now left to the National Trust.
Christopher M. Smith: M25
A short film about the sights and sounds at the edges of urban living, in this case London – a familiar, messy, unloved environment where nature starts to encroach on the urban.
Alan Holly: Coda
A beautifully made and poignant film about life and death and the things that matter. This skilful animation tells the story of a drunken man who needs Death to show him what has been going on.
Mark Lyken and Emma Dove: Mirror lands
An exploration of the Black Isle, a peninsula in the Scottish Highlands. From a retired Lighthouse keeper to a marine biologist, various voices narrate; offering contrasting perspectives and challenging stereotypes of Highland life. The complex interactions between nature and culture are brought to the fore in a skilful and beautiful piece of filmmaking .
Nathan Kaso: Miniature Melbourne
A short tilt-shift time-lapse film featuring the artist’s home town of Melbourne, Australia. This work was 10 months in the making and follows many different events and festivals; the quirky tilt-shift lends a miniaturising effect, forcing the viewer to look at familiar scenes of urban architecture with fresh eyes.
