The OSO has played host to all sorts of outstanding arts events- top quality theatre, stunning art and inspiring music. The one omission has always been film- in the past, we simply didn’t have the infrastructure to put on quality film nights. However, with the recent purchase of a new projector, we are perfectly equipped to host screenings of exciting new films.

The OSO’s first film night, OSO Shorts, will take place on Wednesday 1st February. Featuring 6 short films from up-and-coming directors, it will be an excellent opportunity to see some of the work of the auteurs of the future. The films range in scope and subject matter, from a post-apocalyptic struggle to survival (The Third Guest) to the dangers of time travel (Tachyon), from a psychiatrist’s bizarre obsession with gorillas and Margaret Thatcher (Miss Edison) to a theatre troupe caught in the middle of a revolution (Prelude) and from a student’s obsession with a mysterious woman (Blue Hour) to the effects of a car accident on a young man’s relationship (In Mud and Rain). Whatever your personal tastes, there will be something for you at OSO Shorts.

The event will also be a great opportunity to learn more about what it takes to make a film. Each short will be introduced by its director, and crew members from each film will be around in the bar afterwards for casual discussion about filmmaking over a few drinks. If you are a filmmaker yourself, it will be an excellent networking opportunity. If not, it will be a fascinating insight into the filmmaking process.

Here’s the full line-up of films being shown:

  1. Prelude (dir. Bekzhan Sarsenbay)
  2. Tachyon (dir. Mark Danciger)
  3. Miss Edison (dir. Matthew Lee and David Rattigan)
  4. Blue Hour (dir. Lea Volke)
  5. The Third Guest (dir. Fraser Watson)
  6. In Mud and Rain (dir. Nick Jones)

Tickets are only £8 if you book in advance, so it’s a great value night of entertainment. We hope that you can join us for this special celebration of filmmaking talent.
