Cinema will never die. Trends and markets may shift, but the magic of the projected image is a light that will never go out, thanks to the dedication of those who make, produce and show it, often against the odds. Join your fellow cinephiles on-screen and off with this selection of shorts that goes behind the scenes of the process and the passion; an ode to old-school technique and community, to construction and care, to time and luck.

A group of Tanzanian cinema-lovers keep social film-going alive across a network of rural villages and towns as Cypriot VHS shop struggles to survive. The super8 home movie boom, the extravagant technicolour fantasies of the 1950s, and an unforgettable canine star. Includes new work by Mark Jenkin (Bait, Enys Men), Jarman Award winner Michelle Williams Gamaker, and animator Ainslie Henderson (A Cat Called Dom).
