Set in the rolling hills of the English countryside, Philophobia is a picture of small town adolescence. One week of school remains for Kai, an aspiring writer, and his friends. How they choose to spend this time will cost one of them their life and leave them all changed forever.

Skilfully shot in rural England, this drama evokes that adolescent mix of confidence and uncertainty.

About: Guy Davies, the director and writer behind the coming-of-age story, based in his hometown of Stroud.

At only 25, the Randwick-born film maker has an impressive CV, having studied Cinematography at New York Film Academy, and produced several short films.

With his production company, Zebrafish Media, based in Stroud, Guy decided to return to his hometown to direct his new project explaining "It wasn't so much autobiographical, but an amalgamation of stories from different friends". As a former pupil of Wycliffe College, returning to his old school has brought back many childhood memories, including the beginning of his love of film.
