Short Film Competition: The Space Between

Thursday 16th May, 2024

The Mockingbird Cinema - Screen 1 | 16:30 - 18:00

As humans, we try our best to keep the things we want close by, and the things we don't kept out. This programme explores what happens when those lines get blurry.

A child’s game turns into an authoritarian state in George-Peter Land. A young punk is detained in a psychiatric hospital and dreams of breaking out to join the man she loves (Margarethe-89). And unrequited love is explored when a woman tries to lure their resident house spirit with offerings of food (Spring).

All of these and more come together to discuss the bridges we build, and the walls we might be better keeping up.
