Warp Films 10, Sheffield

Those looking for a role model of regional British independent cinema should look no further than Sheffield's Warp Films, whose first 10 years have produced a string of films of the type most people complain they don't make any more: Dead Man's Shoes, This Is England, Four Lions, Kill List and Berberian Sound Studio, to name a few. Not bad for an outfit spun off from a ravey record label. What Warp's films have in common is a lean, brains-over-budget approach and an unpretentious focus on entertaining the home crowd, which is often what most strikes a chord elsewhere. This 10th anniversary tribute brings together a This Is England marathon (the film and its spin-off TV series); the Mighty Boosh's Bunny & The Bull; Richard Ayoade's Submarine; and Paddy Considine's Tyrannosaur; plus shorts and guests. »
