Posted on

This Friday London Short Film Festival is thrilled to welcome Tony Grisoni to the Curzon Soho for a retrospective and Q&A.

Friday 17th January, 6.20pm: Curzon Soho

Tony Grisoni is widely known for his impressive back catalogue of screenwriting for film and TV including co-writing Samantha Morton’s directorial debut THE UNLOVED, IN THIS WORLD with Michael Winterbottom and both TIDELAND and FEAR & LOATHING IN LAS VEGAS with Terry Gilliam.

For the small screen Grisoni has penned the critically-acclaimed SOUTHCLIFFE and adapted David Peace’s Red Riding Quartet into Channel 4 production RED RIDING.

He has also directed a series of drama short films through the likes of the UK Film Council, Sky Drama and Film Four, plus a number of more experimental pieces with artists including Oona Grimes and Brian Catling. In this special event on Friday 17th January, 6.20pm we’ll be investigating Grisoni’s work as a filmmaker, screening three of his short films:

BAFTA nominated KINGSLAND #1 THE DREAMER, 2008, 21 mins

SYNCHING, 2009, 10 mins

THE PIZZA MIRACLE, 2010, 23 mins

After the screening Grisoni will join us on stage to discuss his career and take questions from the audience – not to be missed!

Following the screening, please join us in the bar for drinks and DJs as we celebrate the last few days of LSFF 2014.
