Starting this Friday 11th January is the sixth edition of “British Shorts”, the short film festival that – in the organizers own words – brings to the screens of Berlin “the most exciting, funniest, strangest and most thrilling short films from the home of dirty weather.” This includes drama, comedy, thriller, animation, documentary, horror, science fiction and music… all from Great Britain, and with a prize at the end of the festival for the best short film.
As well as the film programme, which you can find on the website here, there is also an accompanying programme of events including concerts, exhibitions, DJ sets and even an open screening where the audience decide through the use of red cards whether or not the screening of a particular film
can continue. Brutal democracy, indeed. It looks like it will be – once again – a wonderful weekend of short cinema from “the island” so go check it out. And here is a trailer so you can see some of what awaits:
