Sundance 2016 Short Film Tour – engl

Shorts Attack in September 2016

The Sundance Film Festival in Utah (USA) has introduced global audiences to some of the most ground-breaking independent American and international films of the past three decades.

Image_Sundanceinterfilm Berlin is now thrilled to announce that they have procured the exclusive rights to the 2016 SUNDANCE FILM FESTIVAL SHORT FILM TOUR and will be screening the selection at cinemas throughout Germany, starting on the 1st of September 2016.

Featuring vibrant styles from wild comedy to reflective poetry, the 2016 Sundance Film Festival Short Film Tour showcases a wide variety of story and style in a 95-minute theatrical program of eight short films selected from this year’s festival: Love and erotica collide with jealousy and liberation; woman power, art and motherly love are put to the test; crime in the urban jungle follows the rules of big business; culture puts history on trial; and an experiment becomes a physical ordeal. Typical Sundance – a collection of films that explore all manner of experiential borders in scintillating ways. –
