Screening Room

The Screening Room at New Designers takes place in the second week with a curated selection of the best shorts from this year’s new filmmakers and animators at the show who are experimenting across moving image, animation, film, and gaming.

Themes in focus in our 2018 edition included dystopian futurism, local community and journeys, and mental health. Highlights included Thomas Smith from UCA Rochester, BA (Hons) Computer Animation Arts with the short film ‘Escape Zone 300’ – a 1980’s inspired sci-fi short, with nods to Indiana Jones, James Bond and Footloose, in which a sentient robot seeks to make his escape from a maximum high-security facility.
