Congratulations to James W Griffiths for his BAFTA award for Short Film for Room 8.
Room 8 is one of five films based on the same script that formed part of Bombay Sapphire Imagination Series 2012.
The Bombay Sapphire Imagination Series seeks to spark the imagination. We asked Oscar winning writer Geoffrey Fletcher, to write a short script stripped of any stage direction. The five most imaginative film entries were picked, produced and premiered at Tribeca Film Festival 2013.
