This first feature from Totterdown’s Early Day Films, founded by BAFTA winning producers Kate Byers and Linn Waite, got off to a flying start by becoming the only UK film selected for the Berlinale Forum back in February. Since then, Bait has gone on to attract further acclaim, including a four-star review in The Guardian and a rave review in Little White Lies (“One of the most thrillingly original British films in years”).

Hand-crafted using a 1976 Bolex camera and 16mm Kodak monochrome film stock, Mark Jenkin’s film is a narratively unconventional story of structural change in a picturesque coastal village in Cornwall, centred on a fisherman who’s fallen out with his brother on whether the family boat should be used for fishing or ferrying day-trippers about.
