Sleepwalkers International Competition

The world seems a more infinitely scary place than it did a year ago. Yet this selection of shorts from across the globe provide a glimmer of light against the darkness as amongst themes of loneliness, forced migration and loss of innocence there lies hope with explorations of the redemptive power of love and the goodness at the heart of human communities. The competition also provides cutting edge cinema at it’s best with stories rife with innovation, a spirit of the experimental and genuine heart. With a chance to see established winners – amongst them the winner of this year’s Palme D’or for Best Short – alongside newer works, the live action International Competition promises a world of discovery.
