On 19th June, Future Shorts will be having its Australian launch in Perth, Western Australia. Future Shorts is one of the leading and most innovative short film labels in the world and since 2003 it has created a rapidly enlarging network that allows filmmakers the opportunity to have their work viewed worldwide. Films that are selected to join their monthly programme are currently being shown at 15 UK venues and the Future Shorts international network currently comprises of more than 60 cities and 18 countries worldwide conducting regular screenings. Future Shorts Exhibition aims to provide an alternative cinematic experience, where screenings are often accompanied by other multimedia elements including live music and rescores, performers and installations.
The Australian launch in Perth will be an expanded cinema extravaganza held at the Fly By Night, Fremantle and the event will herald the beginning of monthly Future Shorts screenings at venues around the city, with screenings also scheduled for Melbourne and Sydney later this year.
Upon entry audience members will be greeted by the electronic pop revelry of local Perth act, Brash and Sassy. The first screening of the night will be the world premier of It’s Just Gary, the latest work by Perth’s own award-winning Perrella & Osborn of This is Perth fame. The Future Shorts program for May will then follow direct from London featuring the finest the world of short film has to offer. Entitled Colours, the program will take audience members on a tour around the globe with an eclectic mix of films from China to South Africa.
