Berwick New Cinema Shorts

Throbbing with innovation, risk and unbounded visual imagination, the Festival’s Berwick New Cinema strand features 13 short films from some of the most exciting and ambitious filmmakers working today. Featuring resolutely contemporary films that transgress restraints of genre, capital and expectation, it’s the new home for BFMAF’s expanded short film awards competition. Presented in three programmes borrowing their titles from the RGB colour model of RED, GREEN and BLUE, our jury of Shama Khanna, Sebastian Buerkner and Rehana Zaman will present the Berwick New Cinema Award in a short ceremony preceding Closing Gala El futuro perfecto.
