A final chance to see one of Flatpack’s BAFTA-qualifying short film programmes from this year’s festival.
A programme filled with risk-takers and inconvenient truths that’ll leave you pondering - what would I do in this situation?
A philosophy teacher turns words into actions in her fight against the climate crisis (Therefore, Socrates is Mortal). A film producer smuggles a controversial film across the Atlantic ocean (the witty Stranger than Rotterdam with Sara Driver, based on a true story). Jobs for All! questions our relationship to work and VO our relationship to technology - via an investigation into self-driving cars.
The biggest risk-taker of all can be found in Sideral, about a cleaner who dreams of other horizons. A surprising film with a finale that reaches for the stars.
