Last night The Phoenix was reconfigured as a cinema and worked surprisingly well for running a short film festival.
Packed on a Sunday night the crowd was treated to the variability that comes with these things.
Assiduous RiotACT readers would have recognised some of the videos, but many were new to us.

— Crowd favourite – Gears directed by Nik Wansbrough
— Staff choice – After the War by Konrad Lenz

The quality was frankly better than Tropfest, so interesting to see how that goes for future Festivals.
