Love Hurts

Friday 20 September


Short films are a fertile ground for filmmakers to explore their voice and develop their craft, both visually and narratively. In the late 1980s and 1990s, with supportive funding from public institutions, there was a significant investment in the creative development of a new generation of filmmaking voices. Rarely seen, these short films are the early work of a generation of British female filmmakers, some of which have gone on to become household names, some of which have since stopped making films. But most importantly, they are a snapshot of a time of experimentation and trust in new British talent.
