Be the first to see new independent film; Aesthetica now hosting Film of the Month.
Visit the Aesthetica homepage to see our exciting new ‘Film of the Month’, the best new film as judged by high profile patrons including Oscar-winning Slumdog Millionaire director Danny Boyle. This is an opportunity to view new film created by the rising stars of tomorrow, as hand-picked by the leading talents of today.
Aesthetica continues to support independent film through partnership with Shooting People, an international networking organisation which recognises and promotes indie filmmaking. Shooting People’s 35,000 members make and upload the higgest quality independent films. Each month, these films are viewed and rated by the members, creating a shortlist of three. These are then sent to one of Shooting People’s high-profile patrons, who give a personal review of each of the three, and choose the ‘Film of the Month’.
This month’s winning film has been chosen by Morgan Spurlock (Supersize Me). Picking Trevor Hardy’s animation Pushkin, Spurlock comments: “This film is really, really good, extremely impressive. Give this guy a TV show, quick! He could be the next Nick Park. It’s so well done, so professional.”
Future judges include Danny Boyle (Dir. Slumdog Millionaire), Martha Fiennes (Dir. Onegin; Chromophobia), Asif Kapadia (Dir. Far North), Stuart Beattie (Scr. Australia), and Nick Park (Dir. Chicken Run; Wallace & Gromit).
