Deaf shorts – a sign of the times

Recently there have been some amazing deaf-related films released overseas and in NZ, so we thought it was a good moment for us to highlight some of our favourite short films relating to the deaf community.






Oscar nominated directors

This month in our Screening Room we invite you to take a look at the early short films of three Academy Award-nominated directors: Damien Chazelle (La La Land), Barry Jenkins (Moonlight) and Denis Velleneuve (Arrival).

Highlights from Francesca Rudkin!

Film and music reviewer and Show Me Shorts ambassador Francesca Rudkin discusses four of her favourite shorts from this years Show me Shorts Film Festival. Ranging from a nostalgic comedy that attempts to create an idealized past, unsuccessful flat-hunts, delightful animations and even to a story of motherhood and consolidating crying children. Francesca shares her top picks!
