Sci-Fi Short Films Showcase
On Tuesday 6th November, we held our first sci-fi themed event! We screened nine short films, find out more about them below (not all the films are available to watch online as they are still in festival circuit).
BRIDE OF FRANKIE - DEVI SNIVELY
In this darkly comedic feminist nod to Mary Shelley's FRANKENSTEIN, a not-so-mad scientist builds a mate for her mentor's lonely creation with electrifying, and deadly, results.
BUZZ OFF - AARON COLLIE
A mad scientist foolishly flaunts his shiny new ray gun near a small wasp. He doesn't realise the power of his creation until it is too late and must suffer the consequences of the mutated wasp.
BARBARA FROM OUTER SPACE - JAMIE HOOPER
For years Barbara was unlucky in love and looking for romance in all the wrong places, until one eventful day she had an intergalactic experience in a Lidl car park.
STARSET, RICOCHET - NICK PETERSON
A heartbroken husband brings his dead wife back to life, but with tragic consequences.
BEHIND TIME - WAI KIN LAM
A robot fails to find its owner on time.
DOPPELGANGER - JULIAN CASTRO & ALEJO ROSEMBERG
At a social gathering of friends, a spontaneous competition arises where each one flaunts the new app of its gizmo. The new fetish. Which is the "Tamagotchi" of today? Can they become so omnipresent to the point of questioning the interaction with others, or our own identity?
PORTAL JUMPER - SCOTT FRANCESCHINI
A thief steals a top-secret military weapon and uses it in his daring escape, though he will have to lose the soldiers who are on the chase in a desperate attempt to get it back.
THE LUCKY 2M - TIANA LINDEN
The Lucky 2M imagines the sort of gruelling interview we might have to sit to be allowed to stay on Earth. Telling a joke, being able to talk spontaneously on any subject at a party... these are the skills we truly value now. When panic gets the better of our hopeful remainer, time to start imagining life... elsewhere?
YOU HAVE BEEN CHOSEN - SIMON HORROCKS
An indecisive office worker downloads an app to make all her life decisions for her, on condition she agrees to follow every instruction.
