Congratulations to Leonora Lonsdale for bagging her 2nd major festival win this year! Her short 'Beast' received Best Narrative Short at Woodstock Film Festival in New York. 

This gothic fairytale is a cinematic exploration of identity in the aftermath of divorce. Seen through a child’s perspective, it blends family drama beautifully with magical realism.

The film was funded by the BFI and Creative England’s prestigious Emerging Talent fund, and stars Billie Piper, Sinead Cusack and Poppy Polivnick. 'Beast' is Produced by Jack Sidey & Sophie Reynolds.
