I will be looking to get more local films and talent involved for screening at the next Future Shorts night on November so if you know any local film makes, doesn't matter what they do just let them know I want to show off their work, unless its really, really bad in which case I definately want to show it.

Hey folks I have been thinking about setting up a regular movie night in Aberdeen and decided to contact the Future Shortsnetwork to see if they fancied extending their nights to Aberdeen. Well they'd already beaten me to it but had yet to find a rep willing to help organise future events. Well its going to be me and I'm going to be trying to organise as many fun nights in as many different venues as I can.

An intimate look at love, life and death during the final hours of a couple’s life together. Their extreme reaction to terminal illness is both defiant and humane, reclaiming a romance and poignancy denied by hospitalisation.
