August, as you should all know by now, is traditionally the month when El Vez and I take some of our favourite shorts from the past year on a road trip to the Reading & Leeds music festivals, where they get to show off in front of a brand new crowd in the Cinema Tent we curate with the fine folks from OFVM.

I’m guessing that much of the lineup will be familiar to DN regulars but it’s also likely that there are one or two which may have slipped past you. Either way, we’re massively grateful to all the fine filmmakers who were kind enough to let us play their films out and about. We promise that the first round’s ours at the festival bar!

Speaking of which, if any of you happen to be heading to Reading this weekend we’ll be there as usual so feel free to drop us a tweet – @WeAreDN, @MarBelle or @kung_fuelvis, and be sure to take note of the screening times at both venues by clicking the posters above.

I’m sure that the trailer has you all wishing you could be there too, but don’t fret, we’ve put together a virtual screening of the films for you below – Cider and campfires are your own responsibility. Enjoy!

Thanks to all our directors, you rock hard!
