SHORT FILMS SCREENED IN ITALY

 

Eight short films produced by a Lincoln film-maker will be shown in a special screening at a science and fantasy film festival in Italy.

 

Producer Andy McKay, a lecturer in Media Production at the University of Lincoln, has been invited to give a guest presentation and screen the films at the festival on 27th November 2003.

 

The ‘SciencePlusFiction’ Festival in Trieste will focus on the latest British science fiction, fantasy and horror films.

 

Produced in celebration of Year of the Artist, Andy’s films include the work of 16 artists and filmmakers covering a range of art forms including dance, visual and performance arts, sculpture and poetry.

 

The eight films of the ‘DV Miniatures’ series were part-funded by the university and have already enjoyed success at a range of film festivals both in the UK and abroad.

 

Three of the eight films feature original soundtrack compositions by Ronnie Fowler who recently joined the university as a lecturer in Media Production.
