Worldwide Short Film Festival 2007

Worldwide Short Film Festival

I’ve been fortunate enough to obtain press accreditation for the 13th annual Worldwide Short Film Festival, which is running from June 12-17 here in our fair city. The motto this year is “Shorter is Better” which suits me fine, since I’m on the lower end of the height scale. It will be a particular challenge, though, to actually review these films, since the various programmes often cram ten or more shorts into each screening. But I’m going to do my best. My only confirmed screening so far is the Opening Night Gala being held tomorrow evening. It gathers a number of award-winning shorts into one programme:

  • Imagine This (Australia/Ireland, 2006)
  • Contact (Raak) (Netherlands, 2006)
  • Dreams and Desires – Family Ties (UK, 2006)
  • Make A Wish (Atmenah) (USA, 2006)
  • The Substitute (Il Supplente) (Italy, 2006)
  • The Danish Poet (Canada/Norway, 2006)
  • Tanghi Argentini (Belgium, 2006)

This is my first time attending this festival and really my first time attempting to review shorts, so I’m sure I’ll learn a lot.
