Short film, Rachel, written and Directed by Karen Anstee, has had an amazing response over the past few months. Some of the highlights include winning Best Foreign Film at the SNOB New England Indie Fest, USA in November 2016, nominated at Ouchy Film Awards, Switzerland 2016 for Best Director, Best Cinematography and Editing, and being screened at the Death & the Maiden Conference. The screening was such a success that Karen Anstee was invited to bring her film back to Winchester University by Dr Christine Welch to screen and discuss it with her students, as well as screening it this September in Birmingham as part of a YODO, You Only Die Once, event.

Rachel follows the story of a young woman from beyond the grave who fights to have her last wishes fulfilled despite her unyielding and devoutly religious father.

In more recent news on September 11th, the screening of Rachel at The Portobello Film Festival in the Westbank Gallery/Arts Centre in Notting Hill as part of the London Calling programme was a huge success. Next in line is the Jewish Film Festival on the 19th November at 3pm and the 22nd November at 4pm. The Jewish Film Festival is dedicated to developing an environment in which Jewish film entertains, educates and enlightens diverse audiences in the UK and internationally.

Huge congratulations to all of the crew and cast involved in Rachel.

We look forward to working more with Karen Anstee in the future.
