Indieflicks launches in Liverpool

A monthly film festival will be branching out in Liverpool later this month.

Indieflicks promise to bring a unique blend of contemporary independent cinema from across the world to a new audience on the first Wednesday of each month.

The festival was founded by Arron Lee White and John Pank, two Manchester filmmakers who wanted to create a networking platform which could also inspire creativity from those who attended.

Since its 2015 inception, Indieflicks has screened dozens of highly acclaimed films.

They include Dark Room, starring Peep Show’s David Mitchell, renowned French short Lapsus and A Complicated Way to Live from Liverpool’s own Ged Hunter.

Local filmmaker Ryan Garry will host the city’s inaugural event after his recernt short film The Creative Process was screened around Merseyside.

He said: “Liverpool is a very artistic city and short films are an excellent way to demonstrate that art, whether it’s through giving an exceptional performance, writing a beautiful score, or designing a stunning poster.

“Indieflicks attracts a community of talented people who have those skills in spades.”

The event will be held at the Small Cinema, 57-59 Victoria Street on January 4 with doors opening at 7.30pm for an 8pm start.

Tickets cost £6.00 and are available at http://ifshorts.com/event/indieflicks-liverpool-s2-ep5/
