New British Cinema Quarterly returns with a stunning selection of independent short films showcasing the best of up-and-coming British screen talent. These six gems include the deliciously dark Long Distance Information, starring Peter Mullan (Tyrannosaur), cult comedy star Matthew Holness’ (Garth Marenghi’s Darkplace) pulp paperback vigilante drama A Gun For George, and Judi Dench (Skyfall) in Friend Request Pending, a wonderfully sweet comedy about a mature generation dating in our modern social networking world.

This screening will feature a Q&A with Matthew Holness (TV's Garth Marenghi's Darkplace), the writer, director and star of A Gun For George.
