London Short Film Festival 2012

Huge Thanks to London Short Film Festival for selecting to screen
The Hardest Fight at what The Guardian describes as
‘The Best Short Film Festival in the World’ during Festival Week 6-15th January. 2012 – it really means a lot!!!!
Showing as part of the New Shorts #12 Night of the Living Docs the ever-popular documentary marathon returns to the Roxy Bar & Screen at 18.30 on January 10th, 2012 with a double bill of the very best in short documentary.
The Hardest Fight was the first short film I ever made and I’d be lying if I didn’t admit that, at the time, I didn’t really have a clue what I was doing – just a desire to do it.
I feel truly honoured to be included in the selection and look forward to being there on the night.
