The Tin Music and Arts and Baileyface Productions presents ‘Girl In an Armchair’
‘Girl in the Armchair’ is a new film programme named after the film of the forgotten pioneering filmmaker Alice Guy-Blache. The name epitomises our ethos to showcase women in the film industry who are often overlooked by the industry and media. This film programme celebrates female’s in front and behind the camera alongside identities who have been also marginalised. This programme will screen short films of filmmakers from different backgrounds and skills, both local and international in a variety of roles with a focus on Directors, Producers, Writers, and Cinematographers in particular.
This launch night of ‘Girl in the Armchair’ will be hosted by Michelle Bailey of Baileyface Productions who are premiering their newest short film “Stripey Socks” (2018). The night will be begin with the talented composer of the film, Sophie Hadlum music playing piano. Cait Buckley’s Illustrations from the film will be on display during the evening. ‘Stripey Socks’ Director of Photographer, Diana Stefanescu Film & Photography will also be premiering her latest documentary. This will be mixed with a variety of short films from local and international filmmakers/artists including the comedy parody by Radar-Birds “Being Mark Rylance 2: Bridge of Spies (2018) and much more. The full programme and more information on the filmmakers coming soon.
