The BFI at Stephen Street was definitely the place to be last night! The Girl In The Dress had a private screening for close to a hundred guests, including lead actress Olivia Poulet, BAFTA award winning Producer Duncan Kenworthy (Love Actually, Notting Hill) and legendary British cinematographer Phil Méheux (who just so happens to be the DoP on Killing Thyme, another Capture short).
Guests were welcomed into the beautiful reception lounge area at the BFI Stephen Street. With a total of four screenings held over the course of the evening and a never ending stream of people coming in and out of them, it proved to be the perfect setting for everyone to mingle between screenings and share a drink or two.
Afterwards, guests made their way to The Jack Horner pub around the corner for some post screening drinks (since no proper event is really ever finished without a pint fueled debrief at a pub).
All in all, it was a fantastic evening with a wonderful crowd and a really great reception for the film.
It was an exciting week for Killing Thyme as we were screening at the Oscar recognised Foyle Film Festival, which previously screened one of our other short films Gin & Dry, for our Northern Ireland Premiere! Director M J McMahon flew over to represent the film which was nominated for the Light in Motion Live Action Short Film Award. Killing Thyme was one of the twenty-seven short films nominated from across the globe, including films from Germany, Hong Kong, Brazil, Belgium and more.
Our trip in Northern Ireland began with an insightful film conference focused upon the difference between short and feature filmmaking, with interviews from the likes of Filth Director Jon S. Baird and BAFTA-winning Director Damien O'Donnell, who we had the pleasure of hanging out with after the talk. Damien O'Donnell's short film 'How Was Your Day?' ended up winning the Light in Motion Live Action Short Film Award, and then went on to win the Grand Jury Narrative Short Award at SXSW as well!
Killing Thyme screened on the 21st November at Nerve Cinema 1 along with other amazing films in our category, which meant we could finally see some of the work from the filmmakers we had the pleasure of becoming friends with during our time at Foyle Film Festival!
All in all Foyle Film Festival was a wonderful experience, check out some of the photos from our time there below:
Last night was the world premiere of The Girl In The Dress, and what better place to have it than as part of the BFI Film Festival!
One of only 7 films to be chosen to screen at the festival as part of this year's Film London London Calling selection of shorts, the film screened as part of the Journey section of the festival.
And our very own Nick Helm did the introductions for the night!
All in all, it was a great evening and a fantastic way to kick start the journey of our finished film.
We can officially reveal the new posters for The Girl In The Dress!
