The pair will be showing off their films to an audience of friends, family, cast and potential investors.

The first film is the 13-minute dystopian thriller Time Spent, which has received 24 industry awards, as well as being a shortlisted finalist at the Cannes World Film Festival, Beyond Hollywood International Film Festival, the LA-based Indie-X Film Fest and the Canadian Cinematography Awards.

The premiere will also feature one of the first public viewings of Mabel Brown’s new psychological short drama, The Door Under the Bridge, which was shot in and around the Stockbridge and Winchester area.

Celia, 52, said: “We’ve been absolutely blown away by the incredible response and suite of awards we’ve already picked up for Time Spent – and amazingly we’re starting to receive a similar level of feedback for The Door Under the Bridge which has been a real ‘passion project’ for both of us-  a sentiment shared by all the actors and crew involved in the project.

“Combined, Rob and I have decades of experience in the TV and video production industry. I went on to work at the leading ad agency Saatchi + Saatchi as a TV producer after I left Peter Symonds in the early 90s – but all these years later, I couldn’t be prouder of these two projects, which tackle some really challenging and current societal issues and we’re delighted that audiences seem to feel the same way.”

The screening will start with an introduction and Q&A session led by Celia and Rob before the audience settles in for the private viewing. There will also be the opportunity for guests to meet and mingle with the stars of both productions.

Rob, 40, added: “Our portfolio of awards already seems to be showing that our work is hitting the spot with audiences and we feel confident that with the right level of investment and support, industry commissioners will agree. 

“We might not be quite ready for the Oscars this year but it’s still hugely exciting for us that our double-bill premiere falls in the same week as the Academy Awards! We’re all about celebrating acting talent, production values and creativity, as well as ensuring all our projects are approached with a social conscience.”
