Short Sighted Cinema return this Wednesday with another top-notch (what’s the etymology of that? Imma look this up. Brb… The internet has no clear answer. Great.) programme of short films to screen for your amusement and stimulation.

Tonight’s screening is titled Transform, with all the films dealing with “metamorphic journeys of discovery and transformation. Secrets are shared and identities challenged.” But that’s not all, there will also be live storytelling followed by “open-mic revelations”.

The film programme for the evening features:
