The Festival of Short Films in Prague has brought us some QUALITY screenings this year – a more than decent selection of fascinating films spanning a multitude of different genres and cultures. But one of the highlights was the wonderfully dark and original Likely Stories by the twisted king of contemporary literature, Neil Gaiman. Four short stories oozing with sick and supernatural tales, each one as engaging and rewarding as the next.
This weekend sees the 12th glorious year of the Prague Short Film Festival hosted by the organisers of the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival (let's just call it KVIFF). The bulk of the festival will be in Kino Svetozor from 18/01 - 22/01 which will have a seemingly endless selection of short films from around the world, and of course, the Czech Republic.
Wes Anderson (The Grand Budapest Hotel, The Life Aquatic) has released a Christmas short film / commercial for H&M called Come Together. Distinctive colour palettes, retro set, perfectly symmetrical, plus his tall and lanky regular Adrien Brody - Anderson has been sick all over this commercial and it's lovely.
