A delightful, candy-colored 4-minute short film from British director Oliver Mason, Miss Moneypenny is a bright and spunky comedy about gay dating.
Ben struggles to focus on the ‘So, will I see you again?’ conversation with Matt. Matt proudly peacocks his bohemian lifestyle, while Ben’s overactive mind drifts from James Bond to disaster movies. Will they find common ground, or will they continue with their separate searches for Mr Right?
Miss Moneypenny was part of the official selection at the Inside Out Toronto LGBT Film Festival in 2015. Writer-director Oliver Mason has been making short films for many years, having started out as a runner in BBC Drama. He went on to train in script development, but found his real passion lies in directing and editing. In early 2018 he launched the web series, UnPacking, with writer Matthew Hurt. His previous short film, Away with Me, was featured at the London Short Film Festival, BFI Flare London, In & Out Cannes & Nice, Inside Out Toronto, Rio Festival of Gender & Sexuality and the North Carolina Gay and Lesbian Film Festival. In the UK, it was included on the Peccadillo Pictures short film collection, Boys On Film 16: Possession.
