A Sheffield filmmaker's look at the breakdown of his own relationship was shown at a New York festival on Valentine's Day.
The Residue of a Relationship, a documentary by Brett Chapman, was on the programme for Tuesday's Love Actually Short Film Festival.
Brett, 28, made the film after the breakdown of his relationship with his now ex-girlfriend Ebba.
The poignant and heartwarming work looks at the leftovers of love and what the end of a relationship means for the people involved.
Screening at Tuesday's festival was 'huge' for Brett, who lives in Barnsley and works from a studio in the Wicker in Sheffield.
He said: " A lot of the greats of romantic cinema were set in the Big Apple and it’s a city that I’ve always daydreamed of visiting.
"Given the content of my movie it also seems fitting that it would be screening on the date that it did.
"It’s a really personal film and charts me meeting a Swedish girl called Ebba, us falling in love and then ultimately deciding to separate.
"I was really keen to try and avoid some of the cliches that it’s very easy to fall into with this kind of story and I hope that’s something I’ve been able to do."
The film is due to be screened at a number of other UK and international festivals this year, but the New York event marked its first showing overseas.
Ebba is now back in Sweden but has seen the film and, said Brett, is 'really supportive' of it.
He added: "I’ve had some amazing feedback from fellow filmmakers and people who’ve seen the film so far and it definitely seems to have a sort of ‘laugh/cry’ vibe going on with it."
