Futureshorts is a global short film company originating from England in 2003. Since then it has become the largest short film network in the world. Futureshorts is building new audiences across the globe, as well as developing a platform for filmmakers that allows millions of people worldwide to engage with their work. We’re doing a special preview on this as it is a big event, and something different to what we usually see going on in Seoul. It is a welcome break from gigs, club-nights, and any night that results in 6 shots of Jager and a kebab. Not to say that won’t follow later in the night…
Futureshorts will be coming to Seoul on the 28th January 2012, for the first time, as part of the worlds biggest pop up film festival. There will be a series of short films, with a total running time of 83 minutes. The festival is showcasing at Platoon Kunsthalle, Gangnam. The award winning films have been selected as the six best entries worldwide, and rather than watching a solid 83 minute film, here you have the opportunity to have a few drinks, meet some people and be part of a global event all at the same time.
For those who don’t know Platoon Kunsthalle, it is a fabulous art space in Gangnam which is popular for hosting events such as The Creators Project and is well known throughout the City, so it is guaranteed to be a good evening based on the venue alone. The bar is amazing and the fancy cocktails are a personal favourite of mine.
So get yourself down to the Futureshorts Global Film Festival and be part of a global venture. It starts early at 7:30pm, to give everyone an opportunity to enjoy and not miss out if you have plans for later on.
