Last week, CenterFrame held its first live event, in partnership with the UK Film Festival - and it was b***dy awesome!
It was four days filled with fabulous shorts, documentaries and features, expertly curated by the UKFF team, and beautifully showcased at two very different, but equally fabulous, London venues: the intimate and bohemian Close-Up Cinema in Shoreditch, and the swanky Soho Hotel Cinema in, well, Soho.
On the closing night on Saturday CenterFrame was honoured to present 12 well-earned prizes to the festival’s talented winners.
It was an informal, easy-going ceremony (pics and clips can be found HERE), followed by raucous mingling & cocktails at the hotel’s excellent bar (we wish you could have all been there!)
The film selection was truly magnificent, but some films stood out even amongst that illustrious list;

I am sure we’ll be seeing more excellent work from these thoughtful filmmakers.
