TriForce Short Film Festival 2013

December 14, 2013 at 8:47 PM

The festival took place at the prestigious BAFTA in London and every element of the night oozed glitz and glamour as celebrities posed for pictures on the red carpet and came together to celebrate the innovative work of independent directors.









Holby City stars Hugh Quarshie and Jimmy Akingbola (Triforce co-founder)  step onto the red carpet!


We caught up with Quarshie and he informed us that he will adopt a new role on set, directing an episode of Holby! Some of the other actors who came to show their support at the festival included Martin Delaney (Zero Dark Thirty), Tanya Franks and Will Mellor (Broadchurch). Karen Bryson (Shameless) Preeya Kalidas(Eastenders), Dominic Powers (Emmerdale), Petra Bryant (Fallen Eagle). Judges of the festival included the Oscar nominated Ian Barns and Shank director Mo Ali. 



 Once the social element of the festival was over, guests were ushered into the cosy screening room to watch the short films. Before the screenings began, each director provided the audience with background information about their film making journey and the budgets for their films which ranged from as little as £187 to a colossal 60,000!







The competition was high and the overall winner of the festival and the Best of the Fest Award was Sunny Boy directed by Jane Gull. Sunny Boy is a moving story about a young boy named Danny; who lives in a world of darkness due to his rare skin conditionHe dreams of being a regular young man playing football outside with friends.but as the plot unfolds the audience feel a strong sense of empathy for him and his situation.






The Audience  Choice Award was presented to director Sam Washington for his short film Lost and Found. This twisted tale follows the story of a young woman, who looses her car late one night in a creepy multi-story car park and ends up finding way more than she bargained for!

Our other favourites from the night included  the surreal and highly creative, yet complex, film Frayed directed by Georgia Oakley and the chilling Hoorah directored by Aml Ameen (Kidulthood and The Bill).
