After the madness of the Festival in August (and no venue for us to hold our monthly screenings) we are back at the Banshee Labyrinth for a night of short films, filmmaker Q&As, networking and late night drinks.

Our September screening is packed full of local films with five filmmakers coming to share their work and meet our lovely audience. We have six films screening in total with everything from a twist comedy ending to a touching documentary and possibly one of the most disturbing films we have ever seen (don’t worry nothing gross, just something genuinely creepy and uneasy). All the films deserve their place in the line up and as always we promise that you will see some great cinema coming out of Edinburgh and beyond.

Our Banshee screenings are strictly over 18s only and there is a £2 cover charge paid on the door. It’s first come first served and since we’ve not been around for a month we hope to see a big turn out, so come early! The doors of the Banshee open at 7pm and the screening starts at half past.

I for one am looking forward to a well earned night out after a manic past month so please come and join me and all the filmmakers for our usual dose of inspiration, encouragement, merriment and tomfoolery… all in the name of showcasing and celebrating indie film.

Monday 14th July, 7.30pm at the Banshee Labyrinth

 

July’s Write Shoot Cut is a little special.

Last year I ran the Bootleg Film Festival in Edinburgh, at the Banshee Labyrinth, with a bunch of filmmakers and friends from across the world.

My two partners in crime were Bootleg founder Tom Wilton and Canadian filmmaker Jeffrey P Nesker. I met these guys at the first Bootleg Film Festival in Glasgow in 2008 and we have become very close friends in the past six years.

Elsewhere, NY is Jeff’s debut feature film and he is going to be in Edinburgh to share it at this very special preview screening.   Read more of this post

June’s Screening @ The Banshee

 

IMG_0685It was absolutely fantastic to be back in the Banshee last night for the return of Write Shoot Cut on a monthly basis. A healthy crowd of old faces and new welcomed us back with open arms and a warm round of applause before it even started!

We screened ten films in a slightly shorter programme than usual but that gave us the time for some in depth Q&As with the filmmakers who were in attendance. Read more of this post

A massive thank you to everyone who came along to Write Shoot Cut on Monday night. The Filmhouse was once again packed with a very enthusiastic and supportive audience.

Our programme went down very well with everyone complimenting the curation and standard of films. We pride ourselves on offering an enjoyably diverse programme at each Write Shoot Cut and it’s always lovely to here it’s appreciated. We screened 5 short films at the May event with Q&As from 4 of the filmmaking teams involved. Read more of this post
