REVIEW QUOTES

“…a fine drama” BFI Sight & Sound Magazine

“…heart-wrenching and exciting short” The Reel.net

“One word - wow. An emotional short, with excellent acting and directing - good enough for the silver screen.” Reed Film

"At first [The Hive] seemed tough and then I realised it was not at all. It was actually very tender and made with love and I liked it very much for that." Andrea Arnold, Oscar-winning Director

“Really brilliant. The performances and casting are really good and it's beautifully shot.” Brian Percival, Director, Downton Abbey

“Very impressive… a nicely enigmatic ending too.” James Rocarols, BBC Film Network

“It was a logistically very demanding script on a tight budget ... the result is a hugely ambitious short film with extremely high production values, strong performances and visual flare." Will Massa, UK Film Council
