Films in ‘Bright Future Short’
Analysis of Emotions and VexationsWojciech Bąkowski IFFR 2016 14′
The moods of the Polish poet, musician and artist captured in a sober, yet impressive pencil-drawn animation.
A Thing Among ThingsGiovanni Giaretta IFFR 2016 7′

The MessPeter Burr IFFR 2016 14′
Computer-animated video taking us to the threshold of a utopian labyrinth. A solitary female figure has to clean up the mess it inadvertently spawned.
The Cusp of Your CredenzaAnita Delaney IFFR 2016 10′
Thanks to absurdist language, toenail clippings and large, soft muffins are assigned a place in this out-of-control categorisation of life.
