After a richly emotional week, the Festival leaves the stage before the next edition with a screening of 5 short films! On the programme:
- Jung & Restless by Joanna Priestley
An exploration of the mythopoetic realm through mandalas and dream images that hint at mystery and hidden trauma.
- Boy Oh Boy by Stephen Irwin
A boy conjures the stars out of yogurt.
- Flight by Samuel Yal
Monday 13th April, during lockdown, Samuel Yal invites children, artists and anyone who would like to participate in a collective artwork online using images of a bird flying, photographed by Muybridge in 1883.
- Blush by Joe Mateo (Skydance Animation/Apple TV+)
After crash landing on a desolate dwarf planet a stranded horticulturist-astronaut's chances for survival dwindle with each breath until an ethereal visitor arrives and offers the promise of new life.
- Us, Again by Zach Parrish (Walt Disney Animation Studios)
Told entirely without dialogue, and set to an original funk and soul musical score reminiscent of the mid-60s, Us Again uses the art of animation and emotional storytelling to entertain and inspire.
