OVER THE MOON to announce that SLAP has been selected for the BAFTA qualifying London Short Film Festival 2019!! The full LSFF 2019 programme and exact screening date will be announced on in December. 

SLAP is written, directed and produced by Simone Smith, and stars Charlotte McDougall.

School, gum and teddy bears. An unsettling and surreal girl-pop tale about a nine year old feeling the pressures to fit in. Devoid of acceptance from her peers, Melissa’s mind unravels…

SLAP is BAFTA nominated for Best Short Film!!!

Very happy to announce that our short film SLAP has been nominated for a BAFTA in this year’s Best Short Film category! AAAAH!!! ♡ I am so very grateful and proud of our cast and crew, and the incredibly supportive parents of our young cast who helped make this all possible. I wrote, directed, produced (and edited and sound designed!) SLAP on a tiny budget of under £1k. It took much energy and commitment to see it through to the end … so it feels amazing to receive this recognition today. Thank you to the Bafta team and judges for this gift, and I send eveyone on the SLAP team all my love and gratitude for your amazing work. Thank yoooouuu!!!  More on SLAP here ! :-) xx
