Short Circuit Film Club: Rare Beasts

Join us for this month’s Short Circuit Film Club screening of Billie Piper’s directorial debut Rare Beasts.

July’s edition of Short Circuit Film Club is a watch-along screening of Billie Piper’s feature debut Rare Beasts. The screening will take place on the Glasgow Film at Home platform at 7pm on Wednesday 14th July.

Rare Beasts is the dark, funny, failed love story of Mandy and Pete. Mandy (Billie Piper) is a modern woman in a crisis. Raising a son, Larch (Toby Woolf) in the midst of a female revolution, mining the pain of her parents’ separation and professionally writing about a love that no longer exists, she falls upon a troubled man, Pete (Leo Bill),who is searching for a sense of worth, belonging and ‘restored’ male identity.

Tickets are available with sliding scale pricing – you can choose to pay full price at £4.99, a discounted ticket at £2.99, or a complimentary pass depending on what you can afford.

You will receive your discount code once you have registered for the event. We will be starting the watch-along at 7pm on Wednesday 14th July, with a digital meet-up to discuss the film directly afterwards on GatherTown.

Short Circuit Film Club is a monthly film event for filmmakers (or those looking to enter the industry) and is your chance to engage with films from around the world, and network with other like-minded professionals. Each month will feature either a specially programmed screening of short films, or a debut feature film – local, national and international – chosen to inspire and connect our Scottish filmmaking community. Screenings will be accompanied by an event to give you a chance to meet other filmmakers, discuss the films, share advice and be inspired!

Please note that the post-screening session will take place via GatherTown. You will receive the link to attend in advance of the session. If you have not previously used GatherTown, we encourage you to read our GatherTown Instructions here

The film has closed captions and live captions are available on Gathertown.
