Bright lights sadly fade – whether it be selfhood eroded in the face of daily racist abuse or Blackpool looking to a future of collective anxieties and Brexit parochialism – in this short film competition programme.

This programme looks to memory, nostalgia and that fading of something special in a world that makes forgetting all too easy. Featuring cult hit doc Black Sheep. 95’
