Ruth Paxton’s ‘PARIS/SEXY’ continues its strong international festival run in May with further screenings confirmed in London, Riga and Perth (Australia).
Since the film won the UK FIlm Council Award for Best British Short at LSFF, Paris/Sexy has crossed the planet a few times with strong interest in Ruth’s material from programmers in Asia and Europe.
The win in January has helped Ruth secure London representation as a designer and writer/director and she has also been accepted onto The Bureau’s Save Our Scripts (SoS) development programme with a feature length project set in the Scottish traveling community.
Paris/Sexy was developed and produced by DigiCult through Scottish Digital Shorts 2008/09. The company’s new development and production programme – Incubator – will work with short and feature length writers and writer/directors for the first time in 2011. Submissions deadline: 29th April 2011.
