Devon Film Chosen From Thousands To Be Screened In Hollywood
Short film, THE SILENT, produced by Devon filmmakers, Lightning Oak Productions, has been chosen from thousands of films from across the world to be screened at an iconic Hollywood event.
Written and Directed by Karen Turner, THE SILENT, deals with the little talked about issue of male domestic abuse of which the West Country has the highest incidence in the whole of the UK. The film will be screened at the 48 International Short Film Festival later this year in front of an audience of movie heavyweights and film enthusiasts.
“We are delighted and humbled, thousands of films are entered for this festival from all over the world but only 48 are chosen to be screened. Our little film from Devon has gone a long way!”
THE SILENT, which was filmed in Teignmouth, has also been chosen by over thirteen film festivals across the globe as well as winning a Festival Favourite Award here in the UK.
The film features Star Wars legend and Game of Thrones actor, Oliver Ford Davies, and rising star, Oli Meredith.
