A short film produced by Paean Films in collaboration with Phoenix Rising Media has reached the Official Selection at the 2017 Aesthetica Film Festival, one of the most prestigious short film festivals in the UK.
Set over the course of one morning, Malefaction tells the story of what unfolds when a hitman from Belfast agrees to silence one more target before retiring. The five-minute film, written and directed by Adam Price stars Daniel Godward and Peter Gerald.
Founded in 2011, the Aesthetica Film Festival is held annually in the City of York and showcases some of the year’s finest short films produced by new and established talent in independent cinema. Films previously screened at the festival have gone onto achieve awards success at BAFTA and at the Academy Awards.
Adam Price commented on the announcement saying: ‘I am thrilled that Malefaction has reached the Official Selection at the ASFF. I would like to extend my thanks to the judges and everybody who contributed to the film’s production both in front and behind the camera.’
The Aesthetica Film Festival runs from the 8th through to the 12th of November in the City of York.
