Take 5 with "Zombies and Cigarettes"

The 7th annual Oxford Film Festival is getting closer every day. Before we kick off another fun-packed festival, we thought we would take five with filmmakers and get to know them just a little better.

"Zombies and Cigarettes" screens Thursday, Feb. 4 at 10 p.m. and Friday, Feb. 5 at 9:45 p.m. Director Rafa Martinez sent a few questions from Spain about the film.

OFF: In 10 words, describe your movie and why someone should see it.

RM: A love story and an amazing horde of zombies. What else...

OFF: Biggest lesson learned in getting the film made? Best part in getting the film made?

RM: THE MOST INTERESTING THING OF making ZOMBIES AND CIGARETTES was the opportunity to work with a big team. It has been like making a feature movie. And I hope that when we do make it a feature, we can work with the team as making this short. It has been a very intense experience.

OFF: Tell us about you. What is your movie making background?

RM: Iñaki (the scriptwriter) and I knew each other before the script. He is specializing in script and he works in TV and I´m employed as the director of advertising in Spain. We hope that our collaboration goes on...

OFF: What’s your dream distribution plan for the film?

RM: Zombies and cigarettes has been selected in 60 festivals all over the world, this is a dream...

OFF: What’s the future hold in store for your film and for you?

RM: We are working in Zombies and cigarettes: The movie, this is our new dream...
