First there was Streatham Festival. Then someone decided to screen films for free during the festival. Then they decided to make that an independent event and we started organizing the Streatham Free Film Festival which is now a yearly event screening free films for two weeks in September all around Streatham.

Then we decided to have a short films night and managed to get some filmmakers to come along and maybe answer a few questions. The filmmakers and the audience decided to mingle after the event and we thought we might make that into a monthly standalone event. And since they’ve just opened the brand new Streatham Space Project it didn’t take much to put two and two together.

CineShots aims to give up-and-coming London filmmakers a chance to screen their films, get the feedback from a live audience, engage in Q&A and network with like-minded people for potential collaborations or just to talk film.
CineShots is not a film festival and since we know that independent filmmakers finance their films mainly by themselves there is no submission fee.
The only criteria the film has to fulfil is that the filmmakers are London-based, the film hasn’t been finished more than 12 months before submission and is not longer than 20 minutes.

Sinead Beverland   She writes, she  blogs , she can make a limping script sprint and has a rather concerning inclination to put her screen characters through pretty sticky* situations. She is a part of the independent filming force that is  Guildhall Pictures  and is never without a pen.  *sticky = hellish
