We love short films and think they are a wonderful format for science fiction themes. Each year we receive hundreds of excellent films and it is a difficult task to decide what to select for our shorts programme. A little like DJing, we want to get the mix right and take you on a fantastic journey – we feel we have it right this year with a remarkable range of styles and ideas from around the world. Short films are screened in two programmes and indicated thus:
Best Short Film 2010
(2009, Dir: Greg Pak, USA, 15mins) Catastrophic global warming has become reality; jaded government employee Mason becomes embroiled in a radical plan to save the planet by radically transforming the human race. A beautiful and inspiring film.
