SHORT FILMS COMPETITION

 


Statistically speaking, our selection does not reflect the many conflicts depicted in the three hundred or so short films we have viewed. If we had done so, out of the twelve films in our selection nearly half would be on migration. We have kept in one that we feel speaks for them all. Unsurprisingly the Middle East is still very present, with six films. World Wars I and II are always a subject for many short films. Most of them, due to budget constraints, are filmed on location in the countryside, forests or clearings, and sadly often lose their way. One of the short films takes a journey, literally, between today and the last World War and tells us a great deal about what still links us to it. Two new conflicts have appeared, one in Nepal and the other in Sri Lanka, both portrayed from unique points of view. Animated films, less prevalent than last year, nevertheless once again confirm their singularity and sense of humour. The extraordinary diversity of human behaviour in extreme situations, such as those depicted in these films, often provokes fear and admiration.
