Monthly Short Film Night
Write Shoot Cut is a Monthly Short Film Screening and Networking Event held at the Banshee Labyrinth cinema in the heart of Edinburgh’s historic ‘Old Town’.
A five minute walk from Princes Street and Waverley Train Station, Write Shoot Cut provides a monthly platform for filmmakers to showcase their work to an enthusiastic audience. We have a strong focus on local Scottish filmmaking but also screen films from across the world, curating our programmes to give the audience the best possible experience.
Our format is very simple, we screen a selection of short films that are curated into an interesting programme and host Q&As with any filmmakers who attend directly after their film screens. These Q&As are really important to us and our audiences. We have a lot of filmmakers attending and it’s always great to hear how and why people made their films.
Write Shoot Cut started in February 2012 and built up a large following, with the Banshee literally bursting at the seams. Write Shoot Cut became a staple in the UK Independent Film Scene before taking a hiatus.
We are starting up again in June 2014 and are looking for films for exciting filmmakers as well as asking local audiences to come back and support us. It was always the audiences that made Write Shoot Cut such a success and we really want to bring some life back to Edinburgh with busy nights, great banter and future collaborations.
Write Shoot Cut takes place on the SECOND Monday of Every Month at the Banshee Labyrinth (map), starting at 7.30pm with an ‘on the door’ entry fee of £2 (seats are allocated on a ‘first come, first served’ basis).
Due to licencing legislation, the event is only open to over 18s.
