MicroActs: 'Embrace Your Space' Edition
We are, once again, teaming up with cave, Pimlico to bring you this special edition of MicroActs, with a collection of short films focusing on themes around the body, challenging beauty standards & sharing stories about life in marginalised bodies. The concept of "Body Positivity" has flooded social & mainstream media, but what does it actually mean? We are showcasing this collection of short films that explore the journey of acceptance, critique the hierarchies of beauty aesthetics and discuss the intersectional nuances of what self-love can be.

MicroActs is a program of short films, 6 minutes or less, exploring concentrated storytelling through moving image. From bold political expression to delicate personal memories to abstract experimental collages; MicroActs aims to create a thought-provoking, informative and diverse evening of film. Works can be narrative or non-linear, experimental or scripted, abstract emotions, comedy sketches, music videos, and more, MicroActs is looking for works that share politics, intersectional experiences and tell stories.
The aim of these events is to champion subjective & personal political moving image works, promote artist film in London, and create a community of artists & filmmakers sharing their works and supporting each other.
