Heartstrings

Film fanatics need not despair. Just as quickly as the hugely successful Revelation Film Festival closes the Future arrives!  Future Shorts is part a short film phenomenon and part the result of the tireless persistance of Amy Broadfoot and Amiko Films, which now sees Future Shorts Screenings in bars and venues around Perth.

The July Screening – Eyjafjallajokull (Volcano) features the Romain Gavras directed film clip for  M.I.A’s ‘Born Free’ (…of banned YouTube fame), an animation with insights into the ritual of the turning of the bones, pulling at the heartstrings and a stig.

You get a serving of  seven fresh shorts from Sweden, Croatia, Malaysia and one produced here in Perth. The local flavour Good Times With Oskar is described as “a dark comedy centring on the banal and solitary existence if an overweight, middle aged man, his love affair with food, and a series of calls, over which he has no control.”  Head along to The Bird on Tuesday for this all you can chow down on short film feast.

    Hey are using Wordpress for your site platform? I’m new to the blog world but I’m trying to get
    started and create my own. Do you require any coding expertise to make your own blog?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    When I originally commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now
    each time a comment is added I get several e-mails with the same comment.
    Is there any way you can remove people from that service?
    Thank you!
