short film FINALISTS

SHORT CALF MUSCLE

Short Calf Muscle is an absurdist black comedy about Anders - a rather tall man in his thirties - who finds out that the rest of the world is under the impression that he is a gnome. What starts with a seemingly insignificant visit to the physio, gets completely out of control within twenty-four hours.

TRIGGER HAPPY

Betty Winter, award winning screenwriter, has a showdown with Executive Producer, Richard when he tries to hijack the film she has written by making the female characters die a sexy death, instead of her female empowered version.

THE QUIET

When an astronaut ponders on the quietude of space, he comes upon a startling self-realisation. 

 

'The Quiet' is loosely based on a 2016 short story by the director titled 'Silence' which was the overall winner of the Mundaring National Youth Section for the KSP Speculative Fiction Awards and a High Commendation for the 2016 Rees Prize for Young Writers under the auspices of The Fellowship of Australian Writers WA.

TROLL BRIDGE

Cohen the Barbarian was angry. Angry that he never died in battle, angry that the world had forgotten him, and angry that his knees were starting to play up in the cold. He was also angry that his faithful mount had been gifted the ability of magical speech. The horse was insisting that they had made a wrong turn back at Slice. He was also angry that the horse was probably right.

UNO

A mobile phone inside an airtight bag rings in the middle of the sea. Far out at sea, a cell phone floating inside an air-tight bag starts to ring.

CAZATALENTOS

Dominique had been the most prestigious talent scout in Paris. Now, he is only the shadow of his past until he discovers Sofía, an Spanish flamenco dancer who emigrates to France because of the Spanish civil war and who hides the secret of the greatest talent in history.

LEAVING TO LIVE

On December 24 in the middle of the afternoon, Alexandra, 35, makes an important decision that will change her life : leaving her marital home with her 7-year-old daughter Léa. She asks her to make a promise: to say nothing to his father.

SNUFFED

The Prime Minister rallies to save his career in the face of a leadership challenge.

EMBER

A young girl and her companion struggle to survive, searching for food and shelter in a barren wasteland. Encountering a stranger, she must overcome her fear or lose everything.

LOBSTERS

Mark, a lonely man in a caravan park has found his soulmate, his neighbour Tanya. He drifts off into a fantasy about their future together. Everything would be perfect...if it wasn't for Dave.
