Rebels With Their Shorts
The very art of making a short film is in itself often an act of rebellion. The medium tends to lie outside the typical modes of industrial filmmaking with the relative lack of commercial viability more than made up for by the opportunities to experiment and push the boundaries of traditional cinema. Each of the films presented here not only embody rebellion in terms of form and content but also provide the audience with an opportunity to catch an early glimpse of those filmmakers whose bold and provocative stance will continue to break the rules over the coming years.
These films will take part in Rebels With A Cause, a competition section of the Black Nights Film Festival dedicated to films that defy the traditional modes of filmmaking. Each short will be eligible for the Rebels With Their Shorts prize.
