Short Film 8 - Stranger Than Fiction 15

SHORT FILM 8 - Stranger Than Fiction

What endlessly excites us about short films is their ability to defy the traditional rules of filmmaking and dissolve familiar categories. Blurring boundaries between narrative, documentary and video-art, the formally daring films in this programme demonstrate the freedom inherent in the short form to experiment with, deconstruct and ultimately reinvent film language.
