Spotlights is the monthly short film showcase hosted by Whirlygig Cinema. Unlike most nights, which show lots of films from any number of filmmakers, Spotlights, as the name suggests, is more focused, choosing instead to focus on just three emerging filmmakers, giving the audience a real feel for their body of work. Tonight’s screening is based around the theme of families, showing the work of:
