YOU ARE BEING WATCHED

 

Are we always on our best behaviour when we know we are being watched? Every day we make decisions on how much of our true selves we want other people to see, desperately trying to keep our anxieties and traumas under our skin. Regardless of who is watching us, our audience, government or the higher power, this programme calls out to look out for each other. In times when there's a rise of hate, division and invasion of our privacy, we can stand together joined by empathy and love, becoming a better friend and a better human. Respecting what makes us different and embracing what unites us.

For the 6th edition of InShortFF we've gathered 28 short films from 15 different countries to portray what it means to be human, showcasing the original and bold voices of global filmmaking teams. We hope to inspire and engage an equally global audience in the most diverse city in the world, by celebrating films that are independent, inclusive and international.

 

InShort Film Festival focuses on international collaborations & cultural dialogue. Our dynamic programme of short films carefully selected from all corners of the globe showcases the most original stories and the best filmmaking talent. We believe that a film is the best medium to build bridges between different cultures and to unite people. InShortFF will present work that challenges stereotypical thinking and advocates change. Within our balanced mix of all genres (narrative, documentary, animation, fashion video, mixed media and experimental) everyone will find something for their taste.
