Inside Out

Rich Pickings is pleased to announce Inside Out – a new series of science and film events set to take place throughout 2016. Supported by a Wellcome Trust People Award, these events will bring filmmakers together with scientific researchers in evenings of film and discussion exploring elements of the human experience.

Partnering with innovative film festivals across the UK, Rich Pickings will showcase new, classic and archive short and feature film. Each event will tackle one compelling theme relating to the human experience and explore it in discussion with academic experts, artists and filmmakers. Events will be documented and shared through the Electric Sheep film website. Event themes include near death experiences, compassion and the science of laughter.

Events include collaborations with London Short Film Festival, LOCO London Comedy Film Festival and Glasgow Film Festival among others. Filmmakers will have the opportunity to submit short films and moving image artwork for inclusion in events. Full event details and calls for entry will be announced on this site.

Weird Nature

Rich Pickings is looking for short films to screen at the upcoming Scalarama Film Jam. We’re looking for films that look at nature, but look at it a bit funny. Films that look at nature through biased human eyes, exploring the dark, the bizarre, the unfriendly, the obscene and the unknown. All genres considered, films must be under 12 minutes.
