The programme highlights shorts from the UK that have screened at Real to Reel: The Craft Film Festival, the first UK festival dedicated to craft and the moving image. These diverse films all concern themselves with craft and design, whether thematically, technically or materially.
They explore our relationship with materials and making and include documentaties, maker profiles, and hand-crafted animations, celebrating craft in its many facets.
About the Crafts Council and Real to Reel
The Crafts Council is the national development agency for the contemporary crafts in the UK, and Real to Reel is the first UK festival dedicated to films about making. Now in its fourth year, the festival continues its mission to celebrate the sheer depth and scope of craft skills around the globe: documentaries, story-led films, and animation offer the widest possible view of making, skills and materials, explore through film.
