We’ve recently made an entry as part of the March on Film competition whereby individual teams of budding filmmakers must shoot a 3 – 6 long film within the month of the March. The film can be about anything provided it features a character with a specific name, a specific prop and a specific line of dialogue. Naturally ‘Hen’ was made with that criteria in mind. Watch this space for news about a screening!
