Future Shorts is the world's biggest pop up film festival. This Winter Season we present you 6 films from France, Poland, Serbia, Finland & Afghanistan - it is going to be a truly international excursion into the world of shorts.

We nearly reached our 10th year birthday - and we want to thank you all. Without you it would not have been possible to create such a global, creative network all over the world. Screenings are held from London over to Kazakhstan, Australia to Spain, Ireland to Russia- and now Durham, NC!

Emerge from the underground in search of a seed in Eduardo Williams' “That I’m falling” I Que Je Tombe Tout le Temps (France, 2013), follow two Polish sisters while they seek out their mother in “Out of Reach” (Poland, 2011) by Jakub Stozek, and witness a rather unexpected incident at a convenience store in the animation “Blind Spot” (France, 2007). Directors Nedeljkovic & Majdak from Serbia take you on an extraordinary trip to Rabbitland (2012), while Jenny Toivoniemi shows you a date of a different kind in her film “The Date” (Finland, 2012) and finally Sam French invites you to join in the world of Afghanistan’s "Buzkhasi Boys” (Afghanistan, 2011) to see a different story of coming of age of two best friends.'

This presentation of Future Shorts Winter Season at the Pinhook will included an intermission performance by the TripKnight band, a local trio that incorporates visual projections into their musical performance.

At the end of the festival each audience member will get a chance to choose their favorite film from the evening. These selections will be sent to the Future Shorts headquarters in London and the winner is announced in late February.

“Future Shorts breaks boundaries, borders and conventions to connect a global audience to the world’s best short films. The creators of the acclaimed Secret Cinema, Future Shorts have redefined the way we experience film. The festival is a true celebration of cinema as a communicator and community.” - Future Shorts Headquarters, London

Please note: These films are rated appropriate for people 15 years of age or older.
