Image for Local Heroes

There is nothing quite as heartwarming as a home grown success story. Local Heroes celebrates all the brilliant, inventive filmmakers who are working right around the corner and all across the land, making films that reflect our lives and experiences; telling stories that have an extra special resonance because they strike so close to home. This year’s outstanding selection ranges widely, from Deborah Haywood’s moving mother and daughter story Pin Cushion to Daisy Aitkens’ crowd pleasing lesbian rom-com You, Me and Him. You need immense amounts of talent and determination to make films in Britain, but you only need a ticket to enjoy the fruits of their labour. Join us, and support your local filmmakers.
