Our sold-out Future Shorts event happened over the weekend. We screened seven short films, chosen by the original creators of the international pop-up film festival in London. In order of appearance these were: Fishing Without Nets, The S From Hell, Marcel King of Tervuren, We’re Leaving, Candy Girl, Love Birds, and Seeds of the Fall (Slitage).
MuteHouse, a Chicago/ Seoul design team created some custom screenprints for the evening, Platoon put on a BBQ, and Gangnam Art District, the current artist residency project at Platoon, involved the audience with art by inviting people to give feedback on the night through drawing.
Fishing Without Nets (2010), a film about Somali pirates from the point of view of Somali pirates, was a strong start to the evening.
Love Birds, a short movie showing humans acting as birds, tied with Seeds of the Fall, a film about an older couple having problems in the bedroom, seemed to be crowd favourites and got the biggest reaction of the night from the audience.
For info on the next Future Shorts Seoul event keep an eye on the Facebook page. Which film was your favourite?
Platoon Kunsthalle will hold an all-night film festival for their Digital Peace 2013 series on the 13th of April (sunrise breakfast included).
