Synopsis: This dark comedic piece wrestles with the idea of love and gender-roles. Are men really only after one thing and do women really still believe in love? Who is corrupting whom at this point? Story: Tommy is a romantic at heart but his love life just doesn't seem to take off. So he finally visits Stella, a once renowned beautiful and empowering "love-doctor", only to find a now alcoholic, disheveled and cynical woman, who is trying to convince him that love does not exist. The question remains just who is the Greater Fool in this brief but thought-provoking encounter?

Synopsis: It is the near future. Post Brexit London. Technology has advanced to the point where machines can read our minds, and our past. Terrorists have incorporated this technology into destructive devices to deter any attempts at their disposal. Sergeant Dave Walker is an operative trained to handle both psychological and technical aspects for his role in the Sentient counter-terrorism unit. Although a high level operative, ‘The Bomb’ is the story of the day he met his memories, and his match.
After each film there will be a minute-long break, during which we invite the audience to complete scorecards. The cards go towards the scoring of the films and are sent directly to the filmmakers to provide insight into the audience's response.
