IWM Short Film Festival - R3store sponsor for 2017

Dec 10 2016

IWM Short Film Festival is a showcase of imaginative and challenging films inspired by their collections and its role – to explore the causes, course and consequences of war and conflict, and its impact on people’s lives

R3StoreStudios are hugely proud to be supporting IWM Short Film Festival. Our continued sponsorship of this event is an important part of who we are as a company. Conflict archives on film are part of the world’s heritage and we’re always inspired by the interpretation, changed perspectives, and hope from adversity that the finished films portray. The artistry, respect and social narrative contained in such footage of often very bleak situations, is sometimes profound and always moving.
