The Future Shorts festival showcases the most exciting short films from around the world. Screenings happen in over 285 cities and 6 continents. Durham, NC will now be included in this global film phenomenon. This Winter Season we present you 6 films from France, Poland, Serbia, Finland & Afghanistan - it is going to be a truly international excursion into the world of shorts.
Emerge from the underground in search of a seed in Eduardo Williams' “That I’m falling” I Que Je Tombe Tout le Temps (France, 2013), follow two Polish sisters while they seek out their mother in “Out of Reach” (Poland, 2011) by Jakub Stozek, and witness a rather unexpected incident at a convenience store in the animation “Blind Spot” (France, 2007). Directors Nedeljkovic & Majdak from Serbia take you on an extraordinary trip to Rabbitland (2012), while Jenny Toivoniemi shows you a date of a different kind in her film “The Date” (Finland, 2012) and finally Sam French invites you to join in the world of Afghanistan’s "Buzkhasi Boys” (Afghanistan, 2011) to see a different story of coming of age of two best friends.'
At the end of the festival each audience member will get a chance to choose their favorite film from the evening. These selections will be sent to the Future Shorts headquarters in London and the winner is announced in late February.
