Hip Hop Cafe - Short Film

After screening at the BFI London Film Festival and the Boston Underground Film Festival, we're very proud to finally have Hip Hop Cafe online and thanks for the great reception with 150k views on Vimeo and Vimeo Staff pick! The film has now been released on YouTube.

This was a super challenging short to create, conceptually, to our knowledge it hasn't been done before and created issues that no-one had encountered before. We had a great crew and cast and I'd like to thank everyone involved again.

This was a self finnanced film made out of a love of the culture. We would love to make more of these so hit us up if you want to see Hip Hop Cafe 2.
