Bermudian filmmakers will today take centre stage at BerMovie Day.

Screen films made by locals will be shown at the Earl Cameron Theatre from 6pm as part of the Bermuda International Film Festival.

They include:

The Pursuit of Movement: Bermuda 2017 Summer, a film by Dominic O’Donnell, based on Noah Tompkins, a local in Bermuda who has grown up either in the water or on a set of wheels;

• David Minors’s Abuse, directed by Marq Rodriguez, a fully Bermudian production that tells the story of a young man who lives with a secret that he doesn’t realise is shared by others;

Concrete Dreams by Abby Metcalfe, about Gus Riley, who works as a doorman in modern-day Belfast to support his very mundane existence;

Seeing Him, by Chris Jones, about a middle-aged woman forced to confront personal boundaries and a disturbing truth about her relationship with her younger lover. Edited by Bermudian Christopher Frith;

Trauma and Possession by Matteo Dill. Trauma shows how PTSD is untreatable, and how no medicine is really successful enough to treat it. Possession is about a laboratory that studies cases of people who have become possessed by demons;

Bermudian at University highlights Kevin Minors’s experiences as a Bermudian studying in Britain;

Prince: Hometown Hero, Milton Raposo’s tribute to the musician, Prince;

It’s Possible by Phaedra Dill, a short film inspired by Tom Moore’s Jungle;

Travellers, a trailer for an upcoming series developed by Jacin Lowe.

Following BerMovie Shorts, BIFF will host the BerMovie Shorts Party in the City of Hamilton Arts Centre Lobby at 7.30pm.

Tickets for the party cost $20 at biff.ptix.com.
