OUT IN THE WILD

 

When night falls, not everyone is asleep. Who's up, who dances in the glory of the city lights, and what's hiding in the shadows? When darkness comes, is there anywhere we can escape if we have to hide from the reality? Expect unexpected, that's the theme for the first part of the programme. In the second half, we will teleport you into the wild, where, surrounded by nature you can finally relax and take a break from your everyday problems. Or is that too good to be true?

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.
