This year we were finally able to share our latest short films with our members during two red carpet premieres. Held at the beautiful Regal Cinema in Melton, both days were so special, and it was wonderful to see all our members and their families come together to celebrate everything that went into this project.
At the end of November we completed our short film project, and what a month it was. Filming a short film every week over the course of four weekends, we knew that what we were attempting was ambitious, and the process wasn’t without its challenges.
The last few months at Urban have been spent planning and rehearsing for four short films. Now, somehow, we’re halfway through November with two of those films wrapped and two more to film this weekend and next!

Our Under 12s and 12-16s are currently shooting their own self-written short films 'Imagined' and 'Mirror Image'. Both groups worked over lockdown to devise and write two brand new screenplays and we finally began shooting at the weekend.
