At the event, all the films will be scored by the attending audience, where the winners are potentially screened at any of the ten proceeding Lift-Off global events, with the ultimate aim to give filmmakers like Adam A. Losurdo the best exposure possible as they embark on their continued artistic journey within the film industry.
I wanted to tell a story in a way that hasn’t been told before in the zombie genre. With the element of the zombies not being hostile or bloodthirsty, it left a lot of room to tell a new story. You don’t know what you have until it is gone and if you push someone too much, they might just become unhinged.
HOPE Officially Selected to the Manchester Lift-Off Film Festival is the biggest accomplishment of my filmmaking career. An excellent opportunity to share my work and connect with other industry filmmakers from around the world. I am thrilled for HOPE to be a part of this festival and I look forward to the screening this Month.
Monday, 27th March From 6.30pm
Texture, 67 Lever St, Manchester M1 1FL
Lift-Off currently has festivals in Manchester, New York, Vancouver, Los Angeles, Paris, Amsterdam, Seoul, Sydney, Tokyo, Los Angeles and London.
Ben Polhman Co-Director and Co-Founder of Lift-Off says…
“This years competition was extremely tough. It is clear to see that indie filmmaking in Manchester and the surrounding areas are quickly becoming some of the best in the world. Getting into this programme whether you are a local filmmaker or a filmmaker from elsewhere is a really great achievement. These artists are well on their way to becoming industry players!”
