EVIE is a sci-fi short sponsored by Directors UK and ARRI through the Alexa Challenge scheme, and by the Genera Film Fund. This film imagines a universe where teenage boys, under pressure to lose their virginity, may turn to sex robots.
EVIE premiered at Encounters Film Festival in 2018 and screened at a number of BAFTA and Academy Award qualifying festivals, such as Cambridge Film Festival, St. Louis International Film Festival and Rhode Island Film Festival, where it won 'Best Sci Fi Short'. It also picked up an Award of Commendation from Canada Shorts Film Festival.
