Radio Silence


The world has changed beyond recognition. With half the population gone, the rest struggle for survival behind closed doors with a daily radio update as their only contact to the outside world. Cassie has been alone for longer than she can remember, whilst Jon can’t remember the last time he had a real conversation with anything that had blood running through its veins. With reality dwindling day by day and a serendipitous key bringing these two strangers together, is there any real chance for survival?

Radio Silence premiered at London Lift Off Festival in December 2021 and was nominated as a finalist for Best Indie Short Film at the New York International Film Awards (NYIFA) 2021. In 2022, it screened at Nottingham International Film Festival and Sci-Fi London Film Festival and screened internationally at Flickfair as part of their March programme, was listed as a semi-finalist at Flickers' Rhode Island International Film Festival and finished off with Los Angeles Lift Off Festival in September 2022.
