Future Shorts brings you 8 enthralling short films from San Francisco, UK, Australia, Sweden, Yemen & Ireland. It is going to be a colorful tour through the world of contemporary petite cinema.
The exciting news is that we will also screen a local short "Smoke and Mirrors" by Scott Krinsky. Even more enthralling - the Director Scott Krinsky and Producer/Cinematographer Chris McGilvray are going to be there to tell more about their short.
"Smoke and Mirrors" is a short film based on two chapters of the new novel by acclaimed author Craig Clevenger (The Contortionist's Handbook and Dermaphoria). It's your basic unlicensed medic meets escaped psych patient who claims to be an angel in an abandoned subterranean surgical theater following a massive earthquake kind of story.
The journey of Future Shorts official programme will commence with a hilarious, "un- romantic" comedy by Fred Casella, 'Tooty's Wedding' (UK, 2011), a celebration of childhood in 'Into The Middle Of Nowhere' by Anna Frances Ewert (UK 2011) alongside the coincidences of an aeroplane pilot's actions, in Nash Edgerton's 'The Captain' (Australia, 2013) and the revenge of a young girl on her old boyfriend in 'SVAMP' by Charlotta Miller, (Sweden, 2011). The director Musa Syeed narrates a boy's revolutionary experience in the alleyways of Yemen, in 'Big House' (Yemen, 2013), while the director Connor Finnegan captures a bird's nightmare in 'Fear Of Flying' (Ireland, 2013) and finally director Kibwe Tavares depicts the effects of tourism, globalisation, and commercialisation in Zanzibar in his film 'Jonah' (UK, 2012).
