The Makers of the Film “Offline Dating”

Filmmakers Samuel Abrahams and Tom Greaves

NOVEMBER 30TH, 2015

Sometimes you have sex, sometimes you don’t. Sex can be one thing in your twenties, another in your thirties, and a new thing entirely depending on the person you’re having sex with. So what does sex mean to our hosts right now, today? Jacqueline and Ben share what having (or not having) sex does for them at the present moment, and what they hope for the future. Then they’re joined by Samuel Abrahams and Tom Greaves, the filmmaker and lead of the short film, Offline Dating. How did Samuel feel watching Tom walk up to strangers and ask them out? What was Tom feeling while he got rejected over and over again? And what they have learned from the process that we can take into our dating lives. Listen to find out.

 


OFFLINE DATING Still 03

‘Offline Dating’ is the new short film by BAFTA nominated director Samuel Abrahams, which questions the status quo of internet dating, by challenging Samuel’s newly single friend Tom to find his next date – offline. Shot in Hackney over one weekend this summer, the film has since sparked international debate on social media over the effect technology is having on the way in which we interact with each other in real life.

OFFLINE DATING is making its worldwide theatrical premiere as part of the Official Selection of the BFI London Film Festival 2015.
