Underwire Festival 2012 comes to Manchester

UnderWire, the UK’s only short film festival dedicated to showcasing the raw cinematic talents of women, is heading to Manchester, UK on August 2nd 2012.  This debut event hosted by Future Artists will include a screening of the 2011 festival winners, an opportunity to network, and an ‘open mic’ session where local women filmmakers can screen their shorts, or a work-in-progress, for audience feedback. A peer-to-peer network to gain constructive feedback on your latest projects, the Underwire Networking events will provide female filmmakers working across the crafts a meeting point to find new collaborators, start conversations and get creative together. UnderWire’s founders Gabriella Apicella and Gemma Mitchell launched the festival in 2010 with the belief that women working in the UK film industry needed more encouragement and a bigger platform for their work.
