I am resolutely still trying to promote Curzon Soho's Serious About Shorts series. You can catch the Bitesize Cinema programme this Saturday and on Thursday 27th there will be a selection of animated films showing as part of the Oscar Nominated Shorts programme.
Finally, I've just discovered the Bird's Eye Short Film Festival Blog, which I've added to my links. The festival itself is held in three stages, the first to celebrate International Women's Day in March, the second is coming up in June and the final part will be held in September. More details are on the festival homepage.
