Valentine’s Day is looming, so Show Me Shorts team member Clayton Barnett has picked out three short takes on love – and we aren’t just talking about the romantic, mushy stuff, either.
The winning films were announced in style at the Auckland Opening Night and Awards Ceremony at The Civic. From a field of nearly 1000 entrants to 46 selected films to 8 award winners, these films are truly outstanding achievements in filmmaking.
Film reviewer and presenter Francesca Rudkin discusses three films from this year’s festival. These beautifully crafted shorts tie in themes of familial love in the face of a wide range of adversity: from coming-to-terms with coming-of-age to inter-generational socio-economic issues to vertical discrimination.
We’re pleased to announce a few of the great shorts that will be making their premieres at the Show Me Shorts Film Festival this November. Click through to find out more and stay tuned for the full programme launch on October 20!
