Director: Rebecca E Marshall

Alongside creating and running the best independent bijou cinema in the land, our very own Rebecca E Marshall is also an experimental and contemplative film-poet, who makes film in 35mm, 16mm and DV.

This retrospective gathers short films, alongside Hastings night-swimming documentary Glitter and Storm, and extract from the compelling new feature, The Forest in Me, part letter to her son, to be read in 16 years' time, interspersed with astronauts on a Hawaiian volcano and a 71 year old visionary Siberian recluse of the Taiga.

The Doors Building
A special two-seater pop-up cinema in situ, created by Bob and Claire Humm, will be showing short films - reflections, dreams, memories - for 45 mins before each event of the festival at the Electric Palace.
