Set in a topsy-turvy world where football is only for girls and ballet is the manliest pursuit there is, Ballerino follows one working class boy as he defies society and his father’s wishes for him to be a ballerina in favour of his repressed fascination with his sister's sport; football.
In Summer 2018 ‘Ballerino’ was awarded a “Short of the Year'‘ prize by Promofest. As part of this award Promofest will be submitting the film to 50 festivals globally.
The short had its premiere at the Manchester International Film Festival in March 2019. It has since been screened at Dorking Film Festival, Oxford International Film Festival and Lanzarote Film Festival. Launching online soon!

Belle and Bamber are inseparable friends. She, a 10 year old girl with a thirst for adventure; he, an imaginary blue monster. They while away their youth exploring and getting into mischief, however, when Belle’s Mother tires of Bamber’s influence, she pressures her to grow up and forget him. Unfortunately, he isn’t planning on going anywhere.
