Highlights include the award-winning short Tap Boy (UK, 2021), where a vulnerable teenager finds escape from a violent gang by practicing tap dance. The darkly humorous An Evening With Taglioni (UK, 2021), by SFDFF regular contributors Jessica Wright and Morgann Runacre-Temple (Jess and Morgs) is their latest film commissioned by English National Ballet and is based on a true story from when legendary ballerina Marie Taglioni, the first woman to go ‘en pointe’, retired. Her pointe shoes were bought by a fan… Then cooked at a lavish dinner party and served to 35 guests.

To whom it may concern, Spencer is dead, lying on a wet restaurant floor surrounded by broken glass. No-one in sight, only the open window blowing in the winds of doubt, guilt and circumstance. Six truly unique characters, all intertwined by being in the wrong place at the wrong time, plead their innocence through unconventional language, actions and dance movements while seemingly implementing the other suspects in this unusual crime narrative. Can you solve the riddles and unlock the mysteries to find the truth about what happened? Yours sincerely, The Owner, The Waitress, The Chef, The French Lady, The Delivery Guy & The Stranger
