We’re beyond excited to announce that Do This for Me will have its World Premiere at the BAFTA qualifying BFI Flare: London LGBTIQ+ Film Festival.

It will screen on Sunday 20th March at BFI Southbank and will also be one of six short films available on the BFI Player throughout the festival.

Directed by Marnie Baxter and written by Mini’s very own April Kelley, Do This for Me is a story about friendship, reminding us that everything else can wait when someone you love needs you.

Maintaining friendships in your twenties is tricky. Juggling careers, romance, and the dread of turning 30. Meet Lex, Gracie, Beca, Kat, and Joy. We all know them, as we all are them. Reuniting tonight to pay tribute to a friend, tensions quickly rise as tipsy turns to drunk and grief takes hold of those left behind.

The film stars Kelley and fellow Mini Sara Huxley, alongside the fantastic Taj Atwal, Adelle Leonce, and Tilly Keeper.

Do This for Me is in collaboration with Bipolar UK and the Film and TV Charity. This film has also been awarded the Raising Films Ribbon supporting parents and carers within the industry.

Baxter is an actress and director with 25 years of experience in TV, film, and theatre. In addition, to Do This For Me, Marnie has directed 2 other shorts, award-winning Bad Mother (also produced by Mini Productions) which played over 30 festivals worldwide, and Hello, Muscles funded by Creative Scotland, and starring Kate Dickie, which will be released later this year.

Executively produced by James Dean, an award-winning producer (Discoverdale, Best International Film, Galway Fleadh 2013), as well as the producer of This Is Jinsy, Sky One’s Living the Dream, ITV’s Liar, and more.

Kelley’s writing debut, Treacle also premiered at BFI Flare in 2019.
