This Wednesday night The Black Lion hosts the second Kino Shorts: Women In Film event, where a selection of films will be shown where women have played a central part in their creation.

The night will showcase short films directed, written or produced by women, or starring women, and there will be Q and A sessions with many of the mini movies' makers.

The event is still open to anyone to bring a DVD version of the film down to show on the night, as long as it's registered in advance on the Kino Shorts: Women In Film facebook page (click here).

"Women in all major roles of the filmmaking process are to be considered" says event organiser John Wojowski "As well as the directors this means the producer, writer or main actor and character central to the film will be considered as eligible. Kino will also consider female/male collaborations, as long as the women play a major part in the production of the film or the main and central character of the film is a woman, and instrumental to the plot and wider story telling."

Here's a selection of some of the short films being shown…

 

REP:  Written, directed, produced and edited by Kate Lloyd.

`The story of a shy and reserved female, whose only contact with people is through computers. After being made to take a week's holiday from work, her inhibited nature is ruptured when she meets a man on a chat room. These new physical sensations and connections with others transform Rep in surreal ways.'

SMALL DEATHS: Written, directed and produced by Lynne Ramsay

Short graduation film on the loss of innocence which won critically acclaimed Scottish film maker Lynne Ramsay her first Cannes Film Festival award – the 1996 Cannes Prix de Jury.

ANGELINA TOUT: Directed by Sarah Mallabar

New music video from The Zen Hussies… `Daredevil drummer and Casanova of the Castanets, Angelina Tout is running late to play drums with his favourite band The Zen Hussies...Jonah Flatfoot and his merry band of Zen Hussies make whoopee throughout against all odds - culminating in a truly explosive performance and a stylish getaway to their next gig...'

IT'S MY PARTY: Written and Directed by Kasia Wisniowska, Produced by Rebecca Gillespie.

An exploration of feelings in the relationship between Scarlett, a mother who has put her needs first, and her neglected daughter Rosie… `Rosie's eighteenth birthday turns out to be the specific revenge she has been planning for a long time. It is possible to hate and love your mother at the same time, but for Rosie it is too late for love?'

THE FLYING LESSON: The Philm Company and Motley Flying Productions

`After the recent death of her grandfather, Phoebe Sanderson (Jessica Blake) takes a flying lesson in the exact plane her grandfather flew in WWII, a recently restored Tiger Moth. With a sense of trepidation, she takes flight with a promise to keep. Only a chauvinistic flying instructor (Richard Fletcher) with a secret stands in her way...'
