Wrong Directions Cinetent

 

2018 line up includes…
ECLECTIC METHOD - RETROSPECTIVE
Open up a can of hip-hop. Taste the remix! Eclectic Method is a video remixer, music maker, DJ and king of the movie mash-up. Here we show a retrospective of his best work, so far. “So downright impressive it slightly boggles the mind” – The Guardian

A CREAK IN TIME - STEVEN MCINERNEY
A meditation on the ever-expanding fractal universe with recurring themes of transformation and altered perception, switching scale from microscopic topography to the vast distances of the cosmos. Presented in two parts, the first exploring the macro; the nature of physicality and formation on a celestial level, with the latter concerning the micro; the world unseen, thriving with lifeforms, continuously expanding and in complete symbiosis.

CYRIAK RETROSPECTIVE

Surrealist British animator, Cyriak serves up his hefty back catalogue of bizarre and twisted short films and music videos. Expect to see robot horses floating through space, moo-tated geometry, 7 billion rabbits and Worthing sea-front invaded by infinite giant teddies. Baa!

UNDER 7'S DRIVE IN CINEMA
Make your own super duper brum brum car out of recycled boxes and then chill in your sweet ride watching a fine selection of quality cartoons. Honk honk!
BOARDS OF CANADA - COMMUNITY SELECTION
Few groups of recent times have been quite so mythologised as Boards of Canada, with an online fanbase that picks over everything they do with forensic vigour, the Scottish duo have become something of a cult. There are very few officially made BOC music videos so fans decided to make their own.
#SOUNDTRACKS - TRISTAN C. ANDERSON
#SOUNDTRACKS is the new solo album from Tristan C. Anderson blending folk, electronica and trip-hop with orchestral strings. With eight accompanying documentary/music videos from leading British filmmakers, including BAFTA & EMMY winners. In each short documentary film / music video Tristan’s music acts as a score to the documentary, the documentary acts as visuals for the music. The result is a unique album and film experience with diverse and varied documentary landscapes both musically and visually.
CHASING CORAL
Chasing Coral taps into the collective will and wisdom of an advertiser, a self-proclaimed coral nerd, top-notch camera designers, and renowned marine biologists as they invent the first time-lapse camera to record coral bleaching events as they happen. The team battles technical malfunctions and the force of nature in pursuit of their golden fleece: documenting the indisputable and tragic transformation below the waves.

THE MONKEES - HEAD (DJ FOOD RESCORE)
Dive in to the Monkees mind-bending experiment in psychedelic pop art. Follow the band on a trippy adventure through 1960s Hollywood where they cross paths with such people as Dennis Hopper, Frank Zappa and Jack Nicholson. Featuring a new score by the mighty DJ Food (Ninja Tune).
STORIES FROM THE HOP YARDS
Inspired by the rediscovered Derek Evans photographic collection, Stories from the Hop Yards brims with archive photos and films alongside newly recorded interviews. An essential ingredient of British beer, hops, with their evocative aroma, have been an integral part of county life for centuries. Stories From The Hop Yard is a part of HLF-funded Herefordshire Life Through A Lens; a Catcher Media project in partnership with Herefordshire Council’s Libraries, Archive and Collections, and Learning and Achievement Services.

DEPICT! 2017 SHORTLIST AND BEST OF DEPICT!
DepicT! is Bristol Watershed’s international short film competition that, since its creation by Brief Encounters in 1998, has been challenging filmmakers to create 90 second ultra-short masterpieces. The focus is on uncovering emerging international filmmaking talent, which shows originality, imagination and the ability to engage in just a minute and a half.

SPACE SOUND EFFECTS SHORT FILM FESTIVAL
 Alien may have taught you “In space no one can hear you scream” but it was wrong! The SSFX project challenged independent filmmakers from around the world to create short-films incorporating a series of strange sounds from space recorded by satellites. The resulting highly creative works, span a wide array of topics and genres.
FLASH GORDON - SPACE SOLDIERS
Disaster seems imminent when scientists discover that the planet Mongo is about to crash into Earth. Luckily, heroic young Flash Gordon (Buster Crabbe) is on hand to save the day! The most expensive serial ever produced (in 1936!). This is an awesome blast from the past, sci-fi fans will love it, if only to chuckle at the dodgy science, and primitive (but sincere) special effects. Hail Ming!
HERE COMES EVERYBODY
Here Comes Everybody is an experimental cable access show originating in Los Angeles, curated by Will Erokan and showcasing the work of contributors located around the world.
