Future Shorts Glasgow
Spring Season


Fri 16 May 2014

Spring Season is officially here and brings with it an exciting programme of short films from the UK, Australia, Sweden, Yemen & Ireland. This season we take you on a journey through a hilarious, ”un-romantic” comedy by Fred Casella, Tooty’s Wedding (UK, 2011), a celebration of childhood in Into The Middle Of Nowhere by Anna Frances Ewert (Sweden, 2011), the coincidences of an aeroplane pilot’s actions in Nash Edgerton’s The Captain (Australia, 2013), and the revenge of a young girl on her old boyfriend in SVAMP by Charlotta Miller (Sweden, 2011). The director Musa Syeed narrates a boy’s revolutionary experience in the alleyways of Yemen in Big House (Yemen, 2013), while director Connor Finnegan captures a bird’s nightmare in Fear Of Flying (Ireland, 2013), and finally director Kibwe Tavares depicts the effects of tourism, globalisation, and commercialisation in Zanzibar in his film Jonah (UK, 2012).

Future Shorts Glasgow is also excited to be showcasing Scottish filmmaker Ruth Paxton’s latest work, PULSE, a collaboration with composer Dobrinka Tabakova commissioned by the Royal Philharmonic Society. A cinema poem set in central Glasgow which looks at how mental illness can affect lives, PULSE follows two strangers who share a brief yet profound exchange that evokes sympathy, understanding, recognition and hope.
