Animals are the online superstars of our internet age, forever tagged, tweeted, Instagrammed for the pleasure of an unseen audience. Beyond the cute and cuddly viral cats and dog memes lurks a world not too dissimilar to ours - one of violence, subjugation, anxiety and fantasy. Featuring octoped cinematographers, hallucinating whales and one coyote’s Jodorowskian quest for bloody revenge, this programme is a trippy, fantastical tribute to the existential relationship between man and beast. 77’

London Short Film Festival
With women making up less than 7% of cinematographers in the UK, female DoP collective illuminatrix was founded in 2016 as a go-to resource to discover working women in the field quickly and easily, no excuses.
We turn focus to this chronic underrepresentation and the brilliant women of the illuminatrix roster, looking to the resulting female gaze when women helm the camera in an eclectic cross section of shorts. Featuring a healthy handful of festival alumni from across the years, illuminatrix and their DoPs will join us post-screening in Q&A. 78’
