Lost Connections shortlisted for FOCAL Award

Date: 12/05/2022 12:01

We’re delighted to announce that Lost Connections has been shortlisted in the Best Use of Footage in a Short Film Production category at the 2022 FOCAL International Awards

Supported by Film Hub North on behalf of the BFI Film Audience Network through National Lottery Funding, Lost Connections is a unique UK-wide collaboration of national and regional film archives that offers a poetic response to the experience of the Coronavirus pandemic. 

Drawing on a century of archive footage, the film resonates particularly well with the theme of this year’s Mental Health Awareness Week: the impact of loneliness on our mental wellbeing. It invites reflections on recovery, renewal, the human character, sadness and joy, what we really value, and our reconnection with each other, our communities, and the world around us.

Northern Ireland Screen are proud have been part of this groundbreaking production.
