Victoria Mapplebeck’s Film London smartphone short film 160 Characters will be screened at Picturehouse Central as part of 2017 The London Short Film Festival.

160 Characters bring to life a three year text thread buried in a vintage Nokia. A story that unfolds in just 100 texts and tells the story of how two people, meet, date, break up and deal with an unplanned pregnancy. 160 Characters uncovers the secrets and stories, buried in our mobiles both old and new. Shot entirely on an iPhone, stories and relationships that were originally mediated through mobile phones were bought to life using the latest in smartphone production techniques. 160 Characters was short listed for the Innovation category of the 2016 AHRC Research in Film Awards. When 160 Characters recently launched on Short of the Week it received a Vimeo Staff pick.

Victoria is Senior Lecturer at the Department of Media Arts of Royal Holloway University of London, and an award winning artist, writer and film director.
