The event will screen short films from winners of the And Now What? Film Fund 2017, as well as the best of short documentaries from the DocHeads show reel, and will be hosted by Tristan Anderson (DocHeads) and filmmaker Almass Badat.
The evening will be an opportunity to watch work from some most exciting short filmmakers working today and ask questions to the directors themselves.
The screenings on the evening are:
