Houdini film date

LSFF logoThe short film of my novel The Houdini Girl has been selected for screening at the prestigious 2014 London Short Film Festival in January. Now in its 11th year, the LSFF (“the best short film festival in the world”, according to The Guardian Guide) is a showcase for cutting-edge UK independent film. In 2013 the festival sold more than 7,000 tickets to some 300 films, screened at the best independent cinemas and film venues across London. This year’s event, which runs from January 10th to 19th, attracted more than 1,200 submissions, so it’s a real coup for the team behind Houdini to secure a slot for their film.

The short, filmed in London earlier this year (see previous blog, March 5th), was made by Tomori Films, written and directed by Kfir Yefet and produced by Ofir Kedar and Guy Allon. It stars Jack Whitehall, stand-up comedian and star of the TV series Fresh Meat, and Laura Donnelly, a TV, theatre and film actor whose recent credits include Dread, Merlin, Missing and The Fall. Jack and Laura play Red and Rosa in a bedroom scene at the start of a tempestuous, tragic relationship. Tomori hope the screening at LSFF and other festivals will result in a deal to finance a full-length feature film of the novel.
