Made in Britain - Warp Films at 10
Thursday, 4th Apr 2013
Warp Films are celebrating their 10th Anniversary, with a series of special screenings and events at London’s BFI. The screenings will feature BAFTA award winning films This is England (2006), Four Lions (2010) and Tyrannosaur (2011) as well as a screening of Shane Meadows’ Dead Man’s Shoes with live musical accompaniment.
A seminal production company; Warp Films have spent the past decade reshaping the landscape of British film, funding exceptional talent that may have otherwise gone overlooked. Famously working from a converted garden shed, producer Mark Herbert teamed up with Warp Records founders Rob Mitchell and Steve Beckett to create the BAFTA award-winning short My Wrongs in 2001, which will feature as part of the London Short Film Festival alongside work by Chris Cunningham and Paddy Considine. Other highlights include Richard Ayoade's Submarine (2010) and Peter Strickland's Berbarian Sound Studio, hailed by many as one of the best films of 2012.
