Filmmaker Interviews: Garry Crystal

Two strangers are trapped in a lift. One is dying; the other is dying to escape. In ASFF’s Filmmaker Interview, Garry Crystal analyses his claustrophobic comedy-drama film Down – from his belief in the power of comedy to his hopes to encourage discussion about mental health.

Garry Crystal’s short film screens at ASFF 2019 in our Official Selection as part of Drama 5: One Word Shorts. It will be shown on Wednesday 6 November at the Yorkshire Museum (18:00-19:30), Thursday 7 November at Friargate Theatre (19:30-21:00) and Saturday 9 November at Friargate Theatre (16:30-18:00).

Tickets are now available for ASFF 2019, running 6-10 November. For more information, click here.
