Exeter Phoenix’s #2ShortNights Film Festival is now in its 12th year and Panorama kicked off this year’s festival with a vibrant and eclectic selection of shorts.
With over 400 submissions, the team behind Exeter’s premiere film festival, #2ShortNights, certainly had their work cut out when it came to putting together their programme. This year, for the first time in the festival’s history, the three International Screenings have all been themed, there’s: Panorama; Overwhelming, Uncontrollable, Frenzied; and Fresh Choices and Old Conclusions.
In front of an enthusiastic audience, there was a brief introduction and then the festival was underway.
Panorama starts off in the mountains of Bavaria, takes in the waters of Great Britain and transports you around the globe to a variety of landscapes from differing perspectives. The screening featured nine films, mainly from Europe, the only exception being Tears of Inge, an animation directed by Asisi Telengut, which was from Canada. The aforementioned was certainly a highlight, along with Post Scriptum, Jacbo and The Lost Song.
At the conclusion of each International Screening, the audience in attendance choose their favourite film, tearing their voting sheet next to their preferred short, and the winner of the Audience Award will be announced at the festival’s premiere on Friday 13th. For more information on the shorts screened in Panorama, checkout the Festival’s website..
