TRY ONE SHORT FILM FOR FREE AND BUY THE REST!
PATRIOT by Eva Riley (Cannes Film Festival): vimeo.com/r/2Fkn/ZzAzNTBHZG
Are you an aspiring filmmaker or simply curious? An established one who got it all but never f*ing managed to get into this festival or a ruthless film critics ready to destroy what they dare call the forefront of arthouse cinema?
Sundance has been a reference for independent cinema for decades and making it into the official selection can appear like a daunting task. These 9 short films all made it into the festival and – believe it or not – they were made by people like you and me (ok, maybe with a good dosing of savoir-faire and audacity). Maybe this short film collection will help you figure out what the devil the Sundance gods want.
