Tickets are on sale now for the annual Birds Eye View film festival, and they’ve put together a trailer (above).

Particular highlights this year look to include the segment on horror, Bloody Women, which includes a showing of horror shorts, a screening of Katheryn Bigelow’s 1987 horror flick Near Dark and a practical class in blood and gore prosthetic makeup.

More seriously, the film festival also includes a shorts programme put together with Oxfam specifically about women’s liberation around the world, among many other brilliant-looking documentaries, features and shorts.

The Birds Eye View festival shows work made by female film-makers.
