    The Million Dollar Question (2015)

    Dir. Joshua Hodson / 6.55mins

    This short film looks at the life of and the impact of kindness on a homeless man.

     

    Acquiesce (2014)

    Dir. Thomas Cuthbertson / 3.26mins
    Acquiesce is a short stop-motion animated film made from paper drawings, cut out and assembled individually on a light box. The story follows a lonely cosmonaut falling to Earth, returning to a blank world where only one distant stranger remains.

     

    Spray Away (2014)

    Dir. Frank Scarito / 8.12min

    A group of children are wrongfully accused of vandalism. Can they find the perpetrator and prove their innocence?

     

    Gallery (2013)

    Dir. Suzanna Raymond / 6.25mins
    This silent, experimental art film was conceived as an exploration of the structure of an arts organisation, looking the gallery architecture, the use of its space and contrasting active and static spaces.

     

    The To Do List (2014)

    Dir. Anne Misselbrook / 13.40mins

    Mr Smethwick cares more about his list than the daily tasks written on it. So who is in charge - Mr Smethwick or his list? This short film will be a little too familiar for those of us who make a list.

     

    Imagine (2015)

    Dir. Carl Mason, Lewis Thompson / 9.50mins
    Imagine follows Millie, a girl who dreams of being a dancer yet suffers from an incurable neurological disease. Niemann Pick Type C is an extremely rare disease that causes decline and dementia. There are only 800 known cases around the world, with 80 victims in the UK and 4 in Milton Keynes.

     

    Every Single Penny (2014) 

    Dir. Mark Jepson / 17.56mins

    Mike has just lost his job and is about to be evicted from his flat. Desperate for cash, he plans an armed robbery on a local shop. But will it all go to plan?

     

    Slaypril Fools Day Part V: The Last Laugh (2015)

    Dir. M.J. Dixon / 5.51mins
    This short comedy horror shot entirely in Milton Keynes takes the form of a mock trailer spoofing the increasing ridiculousness of horror franchises and their sequels.
