Film London alumni go totally LOCO

Date posted: 12.04.2017

Now in its 6th year, the LOCO London Comedy Film Festival returns to BFI Southbank in May 2017. LOCO is the UK’s only international comedy film festival, aiming to champion and showcase the often critically underappreciated craft of comedy filmmaking.

This year, the programme includes four shorts produced through our London Calling scheme, as well as new films from previous Film London alumni.

The London Calling shorts featured in the schedule are Pregnant Pause by Alice Seabright, Domestic Policy by Alicia MacDonald, City Lights by Ed Wiles and The Girl in the Dress by Natalie Malla. London Calling alumni included in the programme are Alicia MacDonald with Bad News, Giles Ripley with Well Hello There, and Ben Mallaby with two films, Polly, Ig and Me along with The Temp. Microwave alumni Ruth Picket is also included, with her short, The Honeymoon.

Also screening is the UK premiere of feature film Chubby Funny, directed and written by Harry Michell, who also plays the lead character. The film went through our Build Your Audience scheme in 2016, and follows a pair of struggling young actors trying to balance careers, love lives and friendship.  It also stars Augustus Prew, Isabella Laughland, Olivia Ross, Alice Lowe, Julian Rhind-Tutt, Anna Maxwell Martin and Asim Chaudhry.
