The Film Festival

30th November  - 4th December
The Art House, Drury Lane, Wakefield WF1 2TE

Loose Screw Film Festival will be screened at The Art House from 30th November to 4th December, launching during Artwalk, Wakefield's iconic bi-monthly evening of culture.
Join us at The Art House from 5pm on the 30th November for the premiere of four new artist film commissions created by Joseph June Bond, Joanna Byrne, and Rhian Cooke, and lead artist alabamathirteen. The films will be played on a loop throughout the evening of Artwalk, and for the duration of the film festival. 
Each artist brings their own unique perspective and lived experiences of mental health/illness and together, provide a festival of vulnerable, thought-provoking and exciting works that sensitively address an incredibly relatable topic.
Loose Screw has also been asking the Wakefield public to get involved in the film festival by submitting images, poems, short pieces of writing, and sounds about their experiences of mental health/illness through the hashtag #WhatSupWakefield. A selection of the submissions will be included in short idents shown between the films.
