Top prize Toothpix short in Cinema

The short film 'Labyrinth Derbicus' which won first prize at the 5 Lamps 24 Hour Film Competition, directed by Owen Tooth, has been selected to screen at the QUAD cinema in Derby before each screening of the new feature 'Micmacs' by Jean-Pierre Jeunet.

Jeunet has directed some breathtaking films including Amelie, City of Lost Children, A Very Long Engagement and Delicatessen. His visual style is unmistakable and his choices in casting are uniformly quirky and inspired.

Owen is thrilled to be able to see his work on the big screen alongside such brilliant European cinema.

Micmacs, by all reports, is a true return to form and one of Jeunet's best films to date. Screening times to be announced.
