Stories from the South East
Posted on December 20, 2018
Last summer, we put a call out for inventive and inspiring new short films from filmmakers based in the South East. Selected from nearly 100 submissions, the ten short films that make up South East Stories: New Filmmaking Talent all champion impressive cinematic promise and reflect a great cross-section of talent from our region. We spoke to some of our talented local filmmakers about filmmaking and why the South East matters.
