Real to Reel: The Craft Film Festival Night 1

Real to Reel: The Craft Film Festival, presented by the Crafts Council and Crafts magazine, returns to Picturehouse Central during London Craft Week with a typically eclectic programme of 44 shorts over three nights from 2-4 May.

Opening the first evening is Roadliners from Pretend Lovers - an evocative documentary that sets out to shed some much needed light on an often unappreciated craft. The film celebrates road markers Tam and Jim as they hand-pour and paint lines on the streets of Glasgow.

Directed by Juriaan Booij and from the brains of the excellent Studio Swine, Terraforming imagines a world where a crystal planet has been discovered in the galaxy. The film, originally commissioned by Swarovski, takes some of its aesthetic cues from 1960s sci-fi classics.

Also featured is a music video by Lorna HB - the knitting MC. Her mission is to get more people knitting by ‘bursting the myths and stereotypes’ associated with the craft.

This is just a taster of tonight's 14 films.
