STUDENT FILM MONTH:
Merfolk (dir. Rory Waudby-Tolley, 2012)

The fifth film to feature in our Student Film Month is this short from director Rory Waudby-Tolley, this is his third year major project at the National Centre for Computer Animation, Bournemouth University. It was the winner of Best Animation at Purbeck Film Festival (2012) and was highly commended at the Animated Exeter Awards.

‘In an alternate reality, merpeople have been forced to leave the polluted oceans, and live along-side humans on mainland Britain. After ten years in the UK, an elderly couple of merfolk refugees discuss the society they now live in, and how they have adapted to their new life.’

Student Film Month
In celebration of student filmmakers everywhere and our Student Film In Transit competition, we’ve launched Student Film Month at Cannes in a Van. Every day throughout February, we’re publishing a student film from somewhere in the student film-sphere. It might be a student classic like the 1965 long-short Boy and Bicycle from a young Ridley Scott… an award-winning masterpiece… or a film directed by you.

We’ll be publishing a wealth of moving images from the infamous to the obscure, each film worthy of it’s place on our humble little stage. So what’s stopping you picking up that mouse, tablet or phone and sending us your own student short? You never know where the big yellow van might take you!

We’re even hosting a special Student Film Screen Social very soon in London so look out for more on that by joining our mailing list.

It’s simple to submit…
Email us at play@screensocial.com and tell us what you’d like to show, then fill in the Screen Social submission form (please include details of production) and we’ll do the rest!

We look forward to screening your film.
