Phil's International Premiere: ASPEN Shortsfest!

Earlier this Month I had the priviledge of attending the Aspen Shortsfest for The Ledge End of Phil (from accounting)'s International premiere!

The Aspen shortsfest is a phenomenal film festival championing short film as an art form in its own right. Spanning documentary, live action and animated shorts.

It is also legendary for providing a platform for film makers from around the world to come together to discuss film, ideas and each others work. Inspiring creativity, discussion and collaboration.

Aswell as this the festival gave us the opportunity to speak to the audience in ways of chaired Q&A's, radio broadcasts and even trips to local schools where we spoke to the kids from the local mountain community about film making in our various countries and in our various disciplines.

All in all it was an incredible week, and a fantastic festival screening 70 amazing short films. 

Thank you to everyone who gave Phil a great reception and best of luck to the films of all the multi-talented folks I met in Aspen!

(not even going to try on this one, you know who you are!)
