The BFI London Film Festival - Short Film Competition One

The BFI London Film Festival - Short Film Competition One

At the weekend, we attended the BFI London Film Festival, to see the Short Film Award Programme 1.

We saw a collection of 6 short films that had been nominated. They were all remarkably different, and covered important topics, such as race, emotion, sexuality and war.

‘The Trembling Giant’ directed by Patrick Tarrant was particularly interesting, a documentary of some of America’s oldest trees. The film was cleverly shot through a moving 16mm take-up reel. The film was bizarrely intense, and uncomfortable to watch at times - it certainly captured the attention of the audience. Why it was so captivating ...

How to beat those post-holiday blues

The holidays are over, the weather is changing, and it feels like the start of winter! Here are our top tips to beat those post-holiday blues:


1. Unpack!
Move those suitcases! There is nothing more depressing than tripping over them for the fortnight after your holiday. The cold weather is here – embrace it!


2. Act how you feel.

UGLI: Hi Zack! We are huge fans of your delicious little snacks but can you tell us a bit more about Apesnacks? What's the story of your business?

ZACK: Long story short, we’ve always eaten accordingly to the paleo diet in my family. We basically just try to avoid processed foods and make everything from scratch. I also really hated school and I didn’t want to goto uni. The summer before uni started, my wonderful mum took coconut flakes, threw them in a pan with cinnamon and salt and toasted them up to perfection. They were scrumptious ...

Let's Beat Blue Monday!

Let's Beat Blue Monday!

Have you heard of Blue Monday before? The allegedly most depressing day of the year?

Understandably, tightened purse strings following the festive splurge, time passed since Christmas and failed new year resolutions is not a combination for happiness - but why is the third Monday in January apparently the worst day of the year? And who came up with this theory?

The theory was first published in 2005, a press released under the name of Cliff Arnall, who at the time was a tutor a the Centre for Lifelong Learning - an education centre associated with Cardiff University.

According to this gentleman ...
