Short Film Heart To Heart Featuring David Tennant To Screen In Encounters Film Festival 2020 Competition

Heart To Heart, the short film from IR Bell-Webb and Lilah Vandenburgh, featuring the voice of David Tennant, will be available to stream as part of the UK’s Encounters Film Festival 2020 Competition later this month.

Encounters is the UK’s leading short film, animation and virtual reality festival. The festival discovers, supports and develops new talent in filmmaking, providing a platform for emerging and established filmmakers from around the world, and continues to be a unique meeting place for the industry while celebrating the creativity, diversity and the impact of short film.

Heart To Heart is a 10-minute episodic pilot, one of two episodes commissioned by Sky Studios, and was due to premiere at this year's SXSW Festival before it was cancelled due to the coronavirus outbreak. The film stars Fern Deacon, Siena Kelly, Felicity Montagu and Jo Martin and features David Tennant as a talking heart. Heart To Heart is written by IR Bell-Webb and directed by Lilah Vandenburgh and is planned as a series of ten episodes of ten minutes each. 

After waking up from yet another heart surgery, Liddy (Fern Deacon) starts hearing a voice telling her that she risks dying a virgin, and that's's her heart Lump (David Tennant) talking. He's planning to help her get with hot nurse Kim (Siena Kelly) and learn to live a little.

Heart To Heart will be available to stream from 18th September to 11 October 2020.
