The Rushes Soho Shorts Festival has announced its official festival programme for 2012. The annual festival - now in its 14th year and recognized as one of UK's leading international Short Film Festivals - takes place from July 11th to July 20th, showcasing commercially produced and independent work with an equal focus on emerging and established talent.
223 films from 22 countries will be competing across various categories with screenings every evening of the festival at The Institute of Contemporary Arts, and the awards ceremony will be held at the Curzon Soho on Thursday July 19th. And a bumper collection of work in the Music Video category means that there will be two separate Music Video programmes being screened at the ICA.
Programme 1, on Friday July 13th, includes Duck Sauce's Big Bad Wolf by Keith Scholfield, The Shows Time To Dance, directed by Daniel Wolfe, Spiritualised's Hey Jane by AG Rojas, Maccabees' Pelican by David Wilson. Programme 2, on Monday July 16th, includes Plan B's Ill Manors by Yann Demange, Ghostpoet and the DOT's Trouble by Unknown, Graham Coxon's What'll It Take by Ninian Doff and Ed Sheeran's Lego House by Emil Nava. Full details of the official selection for all Soho Shorts categories are here.
Tickets for the screenings are now on sale from the ICA website.
