#TIFFxInstagram Shorts Festival: @drew_pollins grew-up on skate videos like "Yeah Right" and "Fully Flared," which gave him his original inspiration to become a filmmaker. LOST CHOCOLATE is his hilarious nod to skate culture, shot on 35mm. Judge @benrichardson called it "fucking great and really fun," and added, "no relationship is a one-way street, and maybe the problem is you," pointing to the film's cheeky ending. #shortfilm #digitalshort #filmfestival #skate #sk8 #skatevideo
#TIFFxInstagram Shorts Festival: Award-winning Brazilian filmmaker @eduardomatsuzaki shot his film LA SOLITUDE TROPICALE entirely on an iPhone, and artfully combined his footage with a poem by Bergsma. In it, Eduardo explores feelings of belonging and loss, set to a beautiful song by RIVKA. #shortfilm #digitalshort #filmfestival
#TIFFxInstagram Shorts Festival: In AN EPHEMERAL THING, Montreal-based filmmaker Daniel Daigle (@dandai) imagines the stream of images and memories that flash through your mind right before you die - but for an artificially intelligent being. It's almost like the flip-side to the moment where Dave unplugs HAL in 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY. #shortiflm #filmfestival #digitalshort #scifi #sciencefiction #artificialintelligence
#TIFFxInstagram Shorts Festival: Carey Williams' (@you_askd) THE LOVERS is a touching adaptation of a poem by the same name by @lorrenamagana. In it, the narrator grapples with heartbreak as he unpacks memories of his recently-passed lover, who hid her sickness from him out of a desire to protect him and their last moments together. "Would the time spent have been as beautiful and meaningful if he'd known? Or would it just have cast a dark shadow over the whole relationship," Carey explores. Judge @nabildo called it "emotional and well-executed." #shortfilm #digitalshort #filmfestival #frenchfilm Directed by @you_askd Written by @lorrenamagana Featuring @yo_megs and @abamkpa
#TIFFxInstagram Shorts Festival Day 4 continues with a tribute to the Purple One ☔️. Estonian filmmaker, Leeni Linna's (@lenscom) MUSE is a beautifully art-directed piece, which simulatenously mourns the loss of Prince and celebrates the artist's life through an abstract story of an artist and his angelic muse. #shortfilm #digitalfilm #filmfestival #estonia #estonianfilm #prince
#TIFFxInstagram Shorts Festival Day 4 begins with Dominican Republic-based filmmaker @ivanherrera's LA PASIÓN ORIGINAL, a gripping and surreal portrait of a man's journey to the other side. The short was filmed in one of the most underground slums of the Dominican Republic and features rapper @originaljuan80 in the lead role. "It is very common to our culture here in the slums of Dominican Republic, to say goodbye and farewell with music, gun shots to the air, rum and weed. Especially for the rappers, Gs or just the boss of the block," Ivan said. Judge @rachelryle said of the film, "The story is rich and the footage is so visually satisfying and full of life. It is a perfect reflection of @ivanherrera's Instagram account - which is more like a beautiful art gallery." #shortfilm #digitalshort #filmfestival #originaljuan #dominicanrepublic
#TIFFxInstagram Shorts Festival: UK-based filmmaker Fred Tilby-Jones' STALKERS is a dark and gripping fairytale, inspired by Roald Dahl's 'The Magic Finger'. STALKERS is a suspenseful thriller with a twist ending which we didn't see coming. Neither did #TIFFxInstagram judge @nabildo who called it "smart, funny and really well executed." #shortfilm #digitalshort #filmfestival #albroderick #jaredwatmuff #jimjolli and #baalruns Credits to: @jaredwatmuff @albroderick @jimjolli Roel Fox @dannydwebb @saulbragman
#TIFFxInstagram Shorts Festival: CLARA is US filmmaker Dave Merson Hess' (@nightherontv) animated tribute to being 14. Here, Hess recontextualizes legendary BBC radio DJ John Peel, whose touching on-air reading of a letter from a teenage listener in 1981 has affected and stayed with him for years. "Clara's feelings are universal. I cried the first time I heard this. It's a testament to John Peel's kindness, the sacramental importance of music to teenage life, and to the power of capital "R" radio," said Hess. #shortfilm #digitalshort #filmfestival #animation #stopmotion #animatedshort Directed & Animated by: @davemh Produced by: @jimmyfusil Featuring: @j9wz Rotoscoping by: @davemh & Christina Wagner Audio via John Peel Archive Music by @matsumixu
#TIFFxInstagram Shorts Festival Day 3 begins with @mitchellsturm's I THOUGHT WE WERE CLOSE, a cheeky and sexy look at the intimate relationship between a woman and her stockings. Mitchell's film has the gloss and polish of a Tom Ford film, while its narrator will remind you of Clive Owen's character, Larry, from CLOSER. "Eventually, I just wanted to know what adoration and heartbreak felt like– not from the point of view of man– but of something closer, more adoring and understanding of women," Mitchell said. Made with @morganekanarek & Jonathan von Mering in Paris, France. #shortfilm #shortsfestival #filmfestival #digitalshort
#TIFFxInstagram Shorts Festival Day 2, begins with Tunisian filmmaker Mohamed Abdallah's (@mrtam13) moving portrait of b-boy Emer Guesmi (aka Zulu Rema) @emeer_guesmi. "Emer lost his legs in an accident when he was young," said Abdallah, "I wanted to show what he feels inside when he is alone. I wanted to show how he finds joy and happiness through dance." Our #TIFFxInstagram judge Ava Duvernay (@directher) added "HOPE makes you fall in love with all that life has to offer in every circumstance." #shortfilm #digitalshort #filmfestival #tunisia #tunisianfilm
#TIFFxInstagram Shorts Festival: LOLA (@lola_shortfilm) is German filmmaker Francesca Pollak's subversive take on Vladimir Nabokov's novel, Lolita. It follows the story of a young woman who becomes infatuated with an older man, the owner of a local deli. Through the film's non-linear narrative, we learn that she also has a relationship with the deli owner's son. LOLA is an abbreviation for the German phrase, "Los Lassen" which translates to: let go. This is just one of many clues that makes up the complex world of Lola. #shortfilm #digitalshort #filmfestival
