Film Construction rising stars Harriett Maire and Ferris Bradley have seen their short film, Lani’s Space, chosen as one of 15 finalists for Cinespace – a new short film competition created by NASA and the Houston Cinema Arts Festival.

The film, about a solo father’s journey to understand his daughter’s love of space, will also play at the Houston festival on 10-17 November.

Cinespace aims to give filmmakers around the world a chance to share works inspired by and using actual NASA imagery.

The 21-year-old director, Harriett Maire said: “I loved writing this story. Ten percent of the footage we used had to be NASA stock imagery which really helped form the idea and narrative.

“The fact that he will be watching our film is huge.”
