Encore Shorts

Let’s be honest: everybody likes ■​■​■​. There is no shame in admitting it: it’s natural, it’s been proven to be good for health, and it’s arguably a better use of one’s time than watching short films… but what if we combined these two intense and delightful sources of ■​■​■​■​■​■​■​■​ together?

 

If we did, it would manifest as six eruditely-selected, ■​■​■​-crazed short films with a strong, even obstinate focus on ■​■​■​, ■​■​■​■​■​■​■​■​■​, ■​■​■​■​■​■​■​■​ and ■​■​■​■​■​■​. It would look like a mix of witty, bold fictions and playful, fluid animations - all full of characters ■​■​■​■​■​ it, talking about it, or ■​■​■​■​■​■​■​■​ about it. It would be both entertaining, boundary-pushing, probably somewhat shocking, but most certainly ■​■​■​■​■​■​■​■​. It would be ■​■​■​ and cool and ■​■​■​■​, and admission would have to be adults-only...

 

...and it’s exactly what we will be showing you this year as part of this new program!

 

And why are parts of text redacted, you might be wondering? Well... it wouldn’t be a "surprise" if we revealed the films that you’re going to see, would it? ;-)

 

Surprise! This program's film rating is for ages 18 and older
■■■■ You

Anette Sidor

After stealing for fun a ■■■■■■■■ at a ■■■ shop with her friends, a young woman starts wearing it and, respectfully yet resolutely, invites the guys of her group to ■■■■ it - including her boyfriend. What may be too provocative and gender-role-defying for these characters may possibly be so for the audience as well.

■■■ isn’t just a ■■■■■■ ■■■■■■■ shared by two (or more) individuals: it is also a war waged for millennia - since the very first unicellular organism! - by two opposite groups that are as irresistibly ■■■■■■■■■ to each other as they are inevitably prone to ■■■■■■■■ each other. Sometimes both at once!

■■■ into her first ■■■■■■ ■■■■■■■■■■■ with a ■■■■■■ classmate, a young woman ■■■■■■■■■■ ■■■■ a young man when she ■■■■■■■■. Right off, this ■■■■■■■■■ ■■■■■■■ of a short film starts as strong and as uncompromising as they come, with an ■■■■■■■■ ■■■ ■■■■■ followed by an impossible quandary for the protagonist: how could one assert any sort of ■■■■■■ ■■■■■■■■■■ when one’s body keeps ■■■■■■■■ with each ■■■■■■, let alone manage to feel comfortable with it?

As visually bizarre and ironically titled as this animated short film can be, it also keeps it fair for people in the ■■■■■ community: they too are curious about ■■■ and ■■■■■; they too watch ■■■■ and use ■■■■■■ apps; and they too will ■■■■■■■ their physical ■■■■■ as eagerly, as willingly and as plentifully as everybody!

This film brings the idea of an empowering inner voice to a truly unexpected level! Blending fiction and animation, this is a daring, visually playful, extremely entertaining exploration of ■■■■■■ ■■■■■■■■■ and the refusal to be defined by undermining standards of beauty.

Carried by a non-stop litany of ■■■■■■■■■■■■ ■■■■■ and ■■■■■ of ■■■■■■■■ happening behind closed doors or under the ■■■■■■■ gaze of ■■■■■■■ onlookers, this dizzying and hypnotic short film will put you into an animated daydream of ■■■■■ Renaissance paintings, one more ■■■■■■■■■ and ■■■■■■■■ than the other!
