RESFEST plays in London and Bristol

The NY-based annual travelling festival presents eclectic new shorts, features, music videos and animation. These two UK screenings are part of a 13-city international tour.

During its first four years RESFEST has championed digital technologies but this year the festival is also engaged with original narrative and technique irrespective of production format. British animation on show includes works from Run Wrake, Jonathan Hodgson and Suzie Templeton. Special programmes offer a celebration of recent feature film title sequences, Japan’s acclaimed first full-digital animé Blood: The Last Vampire, created by Mamoru Oshii (Ghost in the Shell) and Scratch, a documentary history of hip-hop ‘turntablism’.

RESFEST is playing in London on 4-6 October, at The Gate and The Ritzy cinemas, and in Bristol on 25-28 October, at Watershed. Full programme information on the festival’s website.

The RES Media Group, founded in 1966, has been a leading promoter of the desktop digital filmmaking revolution. Their RES Media Group website provides details of RES Magazine, TV and Radio, plus streamed shorts and music videos.
