Check out this excellent short comedy we made with young people at Into Film Festival. I’m sure you can relate… it’s about THAT friend. You know… THAT friend. Unless YOU’RE that friend.

Jenny learns to accept her friends for who they are, even though they have strange and annoying habits. A short comedy about friendship, feeling socially awkward and realising that nobody’s perfect. #thatfriend

Into Film Festival is a free annual celebration of film for young people. It took place this year from 4 – 21 November across the country. Here at Watershed in Bristol we hosted free school film screening and also have young people the opportunity to learn about film making from industry professionals through practical workshops. ‘That Friend’ was made by a group of 10 young people aged 13 – 15 from Red Maids School, Bristol over the weekend of the 15th/16th November with support from tutors from the BFI Film Academy Bristol.

What did you think of the film? Tell us about your own friends on Twitter and Facebook using #thatfriend. Tell us what annoys you about them and what annoys them about you… because they’re THAT friend. #thatfriend
