The films


Dir: Edem Kelman | UK | 2020 | 9 mins

All around the city there are lives, crossing and intersecting. One day you might find a balloon on the floor, look at it long and hard, and ask: Who did it once belong to? Whose face did it light up? Where did it take flight and when did it land? What joy was it once commemorating, now only to be trodden on and wheeled over between alleyways and curbs? This is a story about motherhood and grief.

Dir: Yazmin Joy Vigus | UK | 2021 | 15 mins

Former childhood best friends Celeste and Margo haven’t seen each other for eight years – the same time it’s taken for them to both screw up their lives.

Failed journalist cum blogger Margo returns home to Cornwall disillusioned and broken from the city. Meanwhile, Celeste is struggling to keep her head above water as she works a deadbeat job at the village shop, pining over lost opportunities after becoming a carer for her grandmother.

When they both find themselves at the same hen-party dressed as Giant Starfish and Human Kelp, desperation (and an Angry Girlfriend) throws them together and forces them to reckon with the events that destroyed their friendship. Under the weight of disappointment and failure, will the reunion cause them to sink or swim?
