What’s on at the Wrong Directions Cinema…

The Wrong Directions Cinetent is hosted by local experimental collective MASH Cinema, and is the destination to experience all things audio-visual.

This year’s theme ‘Keep It Surreal’ gave MASH Cinema the nod to push their weird genre hopping programme to the max, treating us to an eclectic mix of cinema classics, artist moving image, short film programmes, retrospectives, documentaries, AV performance and random happenings.

Each morning starts with family friendly classic cartoons and films, this year featuring a kids’ mix from BAFTA award winning writer/ illustration duo The Brothers McLeod (who also provide a late night version for grown-ups too!)

The mornings make way for an afternoon programme of thought provoking documentary, feature films as well as cinema classics such as Man With A Movie Camera. Made in 1929, this unclassifiable film is the work of pioneering Soviet experimenter Dziga Vertov. Ranked number 8 in the BFI 50 Greatest Movies of all Time list!
At 7pm the tent switches to night mode, and only admits audiences aged 18 and over. The programme gets more experimental featuring shorts from the likes of Plink Flojd and Jonathan Gillie, as well as short documentarys like Secondhand Sureshots which features producers J-Rocc, Daedelus, Nobody, and Ras G.

[Trailer for Secondhand Sureshot] Make sure to catch live polyrhythmic eyeball bubblebath performances from Hereford based Mynydd Poly, as well as dark menacing electronica from Ferric Lux.

If that wasn’t enough, head over on Saturday morning for the under 7s rave, and then assemble your team for the Loopy Christmas Festive Film Quiz on Saturday afternoon.

“Open throughout the whole weekend, the Wrong Directions Cinetent is an audio-visual sanctuary for the weary traveller. Re-energise your mind with informative and provocative documentaries; immerse yourself in cinema classics; reset your cultural compass with an array of quality shorts; and be hypnotised by an eclectic selection of experimental works. “

Film maker in the making? Get your work seen on the Farm!

Here at Nozstock we’re all about the home-grown (geddit – because the festival takes place on a farm). While it’s an absolute honour to be able to bring some of the most exciting artists and performers from all over the globe to perform in the sleepy vales of Herefordshire, we also recognise that we’re sitting atop a veritable goldmine of untapped talent from the ‘Shire and beyond.

And while we’re certainly excited to be presenting another star-studded lineup which is sure to bring the Orchard Stage to its knees, we want to make sure that the nooks and crannies of the Hidden Valley will be gettin’ the love we think they deserve this year.

From comedy to cabaret, walkabout theatre to sock wrestling, there’s a mystery hidden ‘round every corner of the farm, and one of the most sparkling of jewels in Nozstock’s crown is our very own cinema. Year on year, the Wrong Directions cinema delivers a lovingly curated line-up of intriguing documentaries, experimental films and family classics to complement the festival theme and give the weary raver a place to rest his head and replenish his soul.

Not every festival-goer has the time to kick back for a full length feature film, however – and that’s why, every year, we assemble a reel of shorts from undiscovered, up-and-coming, or tried n’ tested film-makers to give visitors that much needed cinematic injection even if they’ve only five minutes to spare. From stop-motion animation to music videos, mini-documentaries to comedy sketches, we want them all – and we want them from you. It needn’t be related to this year’s theme – if it’s under 30 minutes, got decent production values, and an intriguing and original vision at its core, that’s all we care about. Creativity and freshness are the name of the game here, folks.

Poster requesting submissions

Level up your Nozstock experience this year by having your work seen by thousands of people, on the same farm which has hosted such names as Martha Reeves, Roots Manuva, and Russell Howard. When it comes to cinema, we’re no strangers to celebrity either: in previous years we’ve screened short films from the BBC Film Network, onedotzero, Exposures, Encounters and Aardman to name but a few. Whether you’re a brand new film maker looking to get your work seen, or an old hand with tonnes of video experience under your belt, check out our guide to submissions for short films this year.

The deadline for submission of short films is the 20th of May, so get applying for the chance for your work to appear in Herefordshire’s answer to Hollywood.

Head in the Wrong Directions Cinetent to be entertained, amused, confused and inspired.

“Greetings, my friend. We are all interested in the future, for that is where you and I are going to spend the rest of our lives. And remember my friend, future events such as these will affect you in the future. You are interested in the unknown… the mysterious. The unexplainable. That is why you are here.”
