The fourth edition of the UK’s only festival devoted to craft returned to Picturehouse Central in the United Kingdom on 7-8 May 2019 with a signature selection of engaging shorts exploring the human relationship with making and materials. The Nautilus Arts Centre is pleased to partner with the UK Crafts Council, Maker&Smith and Guildhouse South Australia to present Real to Reel: The Craft Film Festival 2019 in South Australia on January 10 2020.
The 28 films selected feature contemporary weaving, woodwork, ceramics, glassblowing and metalsmithing, offering a unique opportunity to witness craft in action and the narratives, passion and skill inherent in the creation of works. The programme also unites some unusual and perhaps unexpected tales of making – from miniatures, to replica birds’ eggs, to a human powered bakery – along with animations that bring to life fibre, wool, clay and found objects.
Witness the spectacle of scrap metal transforming into intricate eyewear, puppets coming to life in a BAFTA award-winning stop-motion animation, interwoven histories of a blacksmith and gardener and documentaries covering British chair making, Mexican luthiers and much more in this varied selection of shorts.
Discover a world in miniature, performance that intertwines clay and dance, the beneficial impact of creativity on health, an outdoor gym that makes bread, animation celebrating the special role that dogs play in remote community life and documentaries about making, from giant pots to replica birds’ eggs, and more, in this diverse range of shorts.
