"Future Shorts" Estreno Spring Program

the online sale is closed

With the ambition to continue celebrating how our community and audience see the world and experience cinema, Future Shorts Festival is proud to unveil the Spring Season program: 7 classic, cult and award-winning short films are available to screen from March 1st through May 31st 2012.

 

"Mourir Auprès de Toi (To Die By Your Side)” – Spike Jonze and Simon Cahn

2011, France – 6 minutes

 Created from 3,000 hand-cut pieces of felt, Jonze’s tragicomic stop-motion animation takes place in an old, Parisian bookshop where at night the covers come to life. It’s the story of a felt skeleton who falls in love with a beautiful and sassy vixen. Co-directed by filmmaker Simon Cahn with designs by Olympia Le-Tan, this Cannes selected short is sweet, sad, spooky and a bit whimsical. Jonze said, “A short is like a sketch. You can have an idea or a feeling and just go and do it.”

 

"Bear" - Nash Edgerton

2011, Australia – 11 minutes

 Edgerton, who wrote, directed and starred in “Bear”, the sequel to “Spider” (2007), centers around the main character Jack to unfold his tangled relationship and examines whether he’s learned his lesson or not. Described as a black comedy without social commentary, “Bear” is a follow up but also stands alone as it’s own piece. “Because I tend to play things fairly straight and never set things up like it's a drama or a comedy, the audience doesn't know what it's going to be, and something about that really works,” said Edgerton.

 

“L'Homme Sans Tete (The Man Without a Head)” – Juan Solanas

2003, France – 18 minutes

 Created over 4 years, Solanas’ short debut is the story of a man who lives alone, head-less, in a room overlooking a vast industrial space. Visually astounding and technically accomplished, this animated short reveals love and happiness and one man’s pursuit for romance amidst life without a head. "We're living in a period where cinema is a product; movies are becoming more and more commercialized. Short films are one of the last real places for artistic freedom - they're important to celebrate just for that," said Solanas

 

"Quadrangle" – Amy Grappell

2010, USA – 20 minutes

 An examination of a four-way affair, this documentary explores the story of two “conventional” couples who swap partners and live in a group marriage in the early 1970s. Set in Long Island, New York, this domestic living experiment unravels and challenges and boundaries of social convention, marriage, monogamy and desire. “Inspired by the discovery of my father’s photographs, taken at the height of the poly-amorous affair, and in an effort to come to terms with my own past, I decided to interview my parents. The film does not propose answers and strives to remain objective. It explores two people in a certain time. It tells a story,” said Grappell.

 

“Love You More” – Sam Taylor Wood

2007, United Kingdom – 15 minutes

Inspired by the hit song ‘Love You More’ by the Buzzcocks, this short is the tale of two punk lovers, Georgia and Peter, in London, 1978. Tender and explorative, this short film directorial debut by Taylor-Wood was written by Oscar nominee Patrick Marber and produced by Oscar winner Anthony Minghella.
