Watch Audience FEEDBACK: EAT ME!, 20min, Bulgaria, Drama/Musical

Played at the May 2017 Best of EUROPEAN Shorts Festival

Eatmeposter jan 2017small

Glittering socialite Laura starts slipping from the daily reality of a weight obsessed rich man’s mistress. While on a fancy dinner with her gluttonous lover she enters a strange world where food dances and sings. The whirlwind of dance blows the air out of Laura’s head and she becomes a different type of girl…

How people treat each other is mirrored in the way we treat our environment and our food. That’s why “Eat me” focuses on our attitude to food, its dubious contents and food waste through the prism of a skewed relationship.

    Director Statement

    Scientists are nowadays explorers. Whether they launch rockets in space, built submarines to explore the deepest oceans and work to understand how our brains and bodies work, they strive to break barriers.

    SEEDS is about one type of those scientists, the astronauts, whose curiosity to visit other planets leads them to make enormous sacrifices.

Watch Audience FEEDBACK: CARGO, 25min, Netherlands, Documentary/Romance

Played at the May 2017 Best of EUROPEAN Shorts Festival

Poster cargo small

On a lonely ship, in the middle of the North Sea, fourteen men work together for a month. Day and night they sail around oilrigs to provide them of supplies. In this world of fellowship, waves, storms and containers, Frans, an Amsterdam sailor, seems to be at his best. However, the longer the journey lasts, the more it becomes apparent that something essential is missing in this male microcosm at sea. A small film about loneliness and the importance of love.

Watch Audience FEEDBACK: STATE OF EMERGENCY MOTHERF***ER!, 5min, Belgium, Political/Satire

Played at the May 2017 Best of EUROPEAN Shorts Festival

1 yassine fadel

This is the story of two young guys without any trouble who just want to « screw »
without being disturbed.« State of Emergency motherfucker» is a surrealistic comedy
that depicts a society where police violence and invasion of privacy are daily routine,
normal, tedious. The victims themselves are used to it. Even the police is used to it!
Every day, they get back at it. Samy and Mehdi aren’t even paying attention to it
anymore… the viewer neither. The real question of the movie is to finally discover if
Samy did get some on the night of Valentine’s…

Movie Review: BARROW (2016)
This film is wonderfully balanced cinematographically, beautifully rendering scenes of dazzling brilliance without having the darker scenes feel out of place. The story is clean, precise and engaging, with thoughtful attention to detail. The character development is logical, well designed and tempered with flawed heroes, tragic backstories and strong performances.

Movie Review: TENGU: BIRDMAN OF THE MOUNTAINS (2016)

Tengu: Birdman of the Mountains,  is a film that will delight you with its symbology, its imagery and it’s excellent fight sequences, but it goes far beyond that. This film represents of genre-hybrid that should be welcomed into cinema with open arms. It is highly commendable thing to be able to successfully blend genres together, and this film is able to do that. With effortless ease a viewer can watch this film and find something in it to enjoy even if they are not conventionally a viewer of action.

Movie Review: THE TRAP (2016)

Subtle and steamy, with mounting tension in every scene, The Trap is a suspense film, turned mystery film, turned action film. Cleverly designed with red-herrings and hidden details, there must be a special nod of appreciation to the film’s editor.

Movie Review: MOTEL MOTEL (2016)

This film makes nods to several well established cult classics, such as Pulp Fiction to name one of many. The unreliable narrator, the highly subjective non-lateral plot and the avant-garde supernatural air, make the film a cultural cinematic work of art. Think Wes Anderson, if Wes Anderson was dark and perturbed and less whimsical.

Movie Review: THE APOLOGY (2016)

Awkward and uncomfortable, while still engaging and endearing, this film should be commended for its excellent casting. Each character is knowable almost immediately. The performances are strong and incite empathy, even pity, as well as humor for our lead.

Movie Review: WE’LL SEE IF WE DROWN (2016)

Everyone loves an anti-hero, whether you are watching a scripted show, reality TV or even the news, people naturally look for the bad guys. We’ll See If We Drown, a French smash-hit directed by Hugo Becker, is a story about three such delinquents. Mickey, Voltaire and K.O are three twenty-something pseudo criminals up to no good, with plans to rob the Butcher shop that Mickey works at and skip town to go fishing.

Movie Review: BLACKWELL SUMMERS MYSTERY (2016)

Comic, bright and full of flare, this groovy film will leave you craving more. Well done to these maidens of mystery.
