Garrick Hamm's New Short Enters Two Prestigious US Film Festivals

Written by Marek Steven on . Posted in Festivals

British director Garrick Hamm’s new short film The Man Who Married Himself has been selected for two prestigious US film festivals this summer.

The first of these is the LA Shorts Fest which has just started this July. This particular Festival has an uncanny knack of selecting short films that go on to win the Oscar for Best Short Film. The second Festival is the 2010 Rhode Island International Film Festival which is also a qualifying event for the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences.

The Man Who Married Himself has a wealth of talent both in front of and behind the camera. It stars Richard E Grant as the title character, alongside  British acting talents Warren Clark, Emilia Fox and Celia Imrie. Behind the camera are director Garrick Hamm and award winning cinematographer Michael Seresin (Harry Potter, Angela’s Ashes, Angel Heart).

Garrick Hamm is Creative Partner at London based design studio Williams Murray Hamm and recently was the 44th president of D&AD. (Past Presidents include Sir Alan Parker and Lord Snowdon) The Man Who Married Himself is his second short film and he is currently developing his debut feature.
