This year is a year you don’t want to miss TweetFest. Screening short films over three days at two iconic venues in London – the Hen and Chickens and the Hackney Picturehouse, TweetFest is celebrating its biggest year yet. Filmmakers from all over the UK and beyond will have their work showcased in front of hundreds of viewing eyes.
We would be delighted if you could join us. See below for a sneak peak of the short films we will be screening in the next few weeks.
