MEET THE 2022 FILMMAKERS
The Very Short Film Festival is delighted to announce the shortlisted filmmakers for 2022.
The festival is a vehicle for social change – a place where diverse voices are front and centre in an environment full of opportunity. Using the power of storytelling through film, the festival provides a chance for creative sides to be discovered and existing skills sharpened. It’s where many of the entrants pick up a camera to shoot something for the first time in years (or ever!).
Director Justin Kurzel, says “It is the freedom in making shorts where a cinematic voice develops, where a point of view reveals itself to the filmmaker. And it is at these short film festivals where future filmmakers are revealed, where oxygen is pumped into their passion for film. The Very Short Film Festival gives these young filmmakers a platform, and celebrates their curiosity and love of cinema in a meaningful way. It is an essential event which will have lasting ripples for this group of talented filmmakers.”
