The Maribor-based Udarnik cinema will on Saturday screen short films from the programme of the world’s biggest festival of pop-up film. The festival, called Future Shorts, is taking place in more than 55 countries and 140 cities around the globe.
As films are always screened in multiple cities at the same time, the films shown in Maribor will simultaneously also be screened in Beijing and Cairo.
Future Shorts is the world’s biggest festival of short film and its concept of simultaneous screenings at different locations around the world, called pop-up, is a fresh and innovative approach to festivals, Udarnik said in a press release.
The festival started on 3 November 2011 with screenings in Sweden and Spain and will conclude on 31 January in South Africa.
The highlights of this year’s programme are an Oscar-winning film by US director Luke Matheny “God of Love”, the winner of a BAFTA award “The Eagleman Stag” by British Michael Please and the winner of the Sundance festival “Deeper Than Yesterday” by Australian director Ariel Kleiman.
