May Festival Special Event
12:30-1:30, Sunday 31st May 2015
Regent Lecture Theatre, University of Aberdeen

The Director's Cut series is pleased to host a new instalment of Kings College Shorts, which premiered at the 2014 May Festival, and features an exciting selection of innovative short films made by University of Aberdeen film students.  The screenings will be followed by a short Q&A with the filmmakers.  We will be showing the latest short film, We Sit, We Drink. No Guns, by Nicci Thompson, who graduated from the programme in 2012, and has just returned from the Cannes Film Festival this month where his film was selected for screening.  We will also be viewing the film Flight which has been chosen for a special screening at a European film festival in June, made by students on our Documentary course.  Another student film, Show Time, made as part of Laurent Prim’s final year film dissertation features the actress Vicky Krieps, known for her performances in Hanna (2011) and A Most Wanted Man (2014).  Laurent's film and dissertation were awarded the Film and Visual Culture department's Guy Hamilton Prize, endowed by Guy Hamilton, who directed four James Bond films and appeared on our Director's Cut series.
