Real to Reel: The Craft Film Festival

Fri, 29 Nov 2019

Central Craft and Maker&Smith bring you this exciting event. 

A unique film festival originating in the UK dedicated to craft and the moving image, giving a platform to a wealth of films that explore themes of making, makers, materials and process.

The international selection of short films, produced by the UK’s Crafts Council and Crafts magazine, is an eclectic program that explores our relationship with materials and making, and celebrates craft in all its facets.

THE 33 SHORT FILMS ARE DIVIDED ACROSS TWO SESSIONS, THAT COVER AN INCREDIBLE DIVERSITY OF STYLES, PEOPLE AND APPROACHES.
