Saturday 25th September1999
Dotcom Cafe, Portobello Green Fitness Centre

At Video Cafe no11 we presented a selection of films that had not been chosen for the Dr. Marten's Golden Boot shortlist but could easily have done: a feast of 23 films, all short and sweet, some local, some animations, some Funky Fast Shorts, some Video Cafe late festival entries that point the way to the future of British Independent (and hopefully soon mainstream) filmmaking, including Geist Martin Butterly and Don't Walk Whatever Pictures.
