September 25th 2011. On the Upside screened at Speech Motion – a regular poetry, film and performance evening in Stoke Newington hosted by BBC Edinburgh Fringe Poetry Slam Champion Catherine Brogan.

On the Upside screened at Encounters Bristol last week, in the Fourmations Newcomers Category. We got to attend the festival for a few days and saw some Great British shorts. As well as a catching On the Upside in a packed screening of ’Newcomers 2′. The festival was very relaxed and the film went down well to an appreciative crowd.
Guardian Guide Nov 15th 2008: “With over 1,000 entries, Encounters is easily the UK’s largest international short film festival, and the calibre of entries is undeniably superior. Of the 300 short films screened,…spot new film-making and animation talent among the treats – such as Peter Bunzl’s On The Upside, pictured.”

On the Upside – was one of three finalist for the Rushes Soho Shorts Newcomer Award at The Rushes Short Film Festival in July 2008.

But it was an honour to get to the final from amongst so many great films!
