Jess Plus None - BFI Flare


When old and close friends are gathered together for an important occasion in an unusual location, chaos, intrigue and revelations are bound to be happen. Jess Plus None has exactly the right mix and perfectly uncomfortable setting; a wedding in the woods involving camping, to create a romantic comedy that follows the same genre beats but has an entertaining group of characters that gives the film a boost above ordinary.

Jess Plus None screened at BFI Flare 2023

Egghead & Twinkie - BFI Flare

Egghead & Twinkie is nothing ground breaking, we’ve seen these characters many times before and seen this story play out with both tragic and happy endings. However, there is something very charming and blissfully idealistic about the two best friends’ journey. But this is primarily Twinkie’s story, despite the title suggesting otherwise. Wanting to meet the girl she’s been talking to online for months, Twinkie convinces her best friend Egghead, who may still harbour feelings for her, to come with her on a last-minute road trip. Along the way truths are shared, feelings are hurt and new friends found. A ‘classic’ road trip film for the Gen Z crowd.

Egghead & Twinkie will have it's International Premiere at BFI Flare 2023.
