While being stylistically diverse the BF Artist Film Festival X films all explore a common theme: Our sense of loneliness and isolation during late Capitalism; a period of increased individualism, political instability and ever-widening economic disparity. These films reflect working class aspirations in the era of zero hour contracts set against a backdrop of sub/urban regeneration where, in spite of the alienation prevalent in today’s neo-liberal economy, the pub, nightclub, and digital world provide spaces where transformation, enchantment and romance can occur.
