Random Acts

Random Acts Presents is a joint initiative between Arts Council England, Channel 4 and five film organisations, working together to commission and support young artists and filmmakers to make short films.

South Hill Park Cinema is delighted to be taking part in this exciting project by showing selected shorts before features.

Additionally, throughout the year Young People are invited to engage with the visual arts exhibitions programme and further opportunities to showcase the creativity of local schools and community groups. For more information contact Cat Cooke Exhibition Coordinator: cat.cooke@nullsouthhillpark.org.uk

The short films we’re showing are listed below with screening dates and some information about each. All short films are appropriate to the feature they’re showing alongside.
