      Final Cuts 2017 - NFT2

      Final Cuts is a screening of work at the National Film Theatre by students graduating from studios on the Film and Broadcast Production course at The Sir John Cass School of Art, Architecture and Design.A wide range of fiction and non-fiction projects will be presented, from documentaries to music videos and more experimental work. In surreal comedy drama Hippocampus directed by Heidi O’Loughlin and set in undersea restaurant, Alan the seahorse is on a date with Marina. After a recent fling between them, Alan is pregnant. Can he convince Marina to come to the table and be a good mum? The film’s performers include top comedian and Arts Emergency founder Josie Long and Taylor Frost who is also currently appearing in Ron Howard’s Genius. There are more surreal moments in The Bottle directed by Lukasz Snow in which strange magic is unleashed upon London from the banks of the River Thames. TV pilot Sinners Haven directed by Leon Moore invites us to share the intrigues of a garish East End bar where the secrets are dirtier than the martinis and there is an arctic chill to Oates which focuses on a lonely girl who is obsessed with Captain Oates' heroic sacrifice.The highs and lows of interpersonal relationships are explored in a number of films. In Olivia, directed by Ruben Gonzalez, a man seeks therapy to overcome a bad smoking habit only to realise his true addiction is his ex lover. In Azad Khan‘s Shadow, an isolated man suffering from a mental illness, stigmatised by family and society, seeks affection but ends up sacrificing his own life for his family’s honor. Gersiley De Sousa’s Text Message follows Matt as he fights the urge to be suspicious of his partner's phone on the last leg on their relationship.The lively programme sees short films interspersed with music videos including Maia Vahtramae, Koy, Close and Dance World Cup.The Final Cuts annual screening grew out of the 'Exhibition and Representation' module where students explore approaches to producing showreels, programming and showing work, and the uses of pr, marketing and social media.Doors open 1.45pm, so be sure to get there early to grab the best seats!Image still from short film Hippocampus directed by Heidi O'Loughlin.
