News

Short fiction film Pommel by Paris Zarcilla, produced by London-based Saracen Films and co-produced by Eclectica, has been nominated for Best British Short at the 2018 British Independent Film Awards.

The film follows the daily routine of two Asian brothers, dedicated competitive gymnasts whose ambitious devotion slowly transforms them from rivals into enemies.

Pommel has won Best UK Short at the East End Film Festival, as well as the Special Jury Prize for Excellence in Directing at the Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival.

The BIFA nomination has ranked Pommel among the best of the British short film production. The official award ceremony took place in London in December 2018.
