BAFTA SHORT FILMS - 2

More of the best BAFTA winners and nominees from the last decade or so.


Kingsland

Kingsland #1: The Dreamer by Tony Grisoni (2008) (UK) (20m)

Kingsland #1: The Dreamer was written and directed by London-born Tony Grisoni, who had already forged a successful writing career before trying his hand at directing. Kingsland was nominated alongside Ralph and follows the story of a Kurdish immigrant who has arrived in London with nothing and soon finds himself involved in a dark world. It is entitled #1: The Dreamer because it is intended as the first of five chapters of a feature.


Ralph by Alex Winckler (2008) (UK) (12m)

Alex Winckler, who studied film at Columbia University, New York, went on to direct for British teen soap opera, Hollyoakes after being nominated for a BAFTA with Ralph. Ralph was his graduation film and tells the story of a teenage boy (Ralph) who arrives in France to meet the French girl he met in England. However, his lack of preparation and her apparent disinterest results in Ralph learning a little about who he should be giving his heart to.

Soft

Soft by Simon Ellis (2007) (UK) (14m)

Simon Ellis won the International Short Filmmaking Award at Sundance and was nominated for a BAFTA in 2008 with his great short film, Soft. It is the gritty story of a son and father tormented by a gang of 'happy-slapping' youths, but with neither apparently being brave enough to fight back. Simon Ellis went on to make the feature film, Dogging: A Love Story, in 2009 but scored less success with this film.
