The Sunderland Shorts Film Festival is always a yearly “WOW!” and they’re currently on the hunt for people who have strong views about cinema who’d like to share them. If you’re a budding Pauline Kael then cast your eyes over this.

One of the most frequent requests we get here at Crack House (apart from, “Can you please stop saying that you’d like to push Ed Sheeran into a wood chipper”) is, “Can I please write film reviews for you”. We have to answer no to these because, A. We already have someone down in London who dutifully troops, bleary eyed, from one press showing to the next for us each month, and B. The write-up of The Emoji Movie you’ve attached to your email - claiming that “it’s out-Tarantinoed Tarantino!!!” – didn’t really grab us. The Sunderland Shorts Festival, however, would like to hear from you. The three-day festival is a real showcase for filmmaking flair, providing a platform for emerging talent and an opportunity for up and coming, and amateur mini-movie maestros, to see their names up in lights. Festival Director, Anne Tye: “We present a wide range of genres from directors and producers from around the globe. I’m so pleased this year’s event was so well received, but planning for 2018 is already underway, and the first job is to get film reviewers on board.” Get to it.
