The unDependence Film Festival has been showing Scottish and international short films that ask questions about relationships between individuals and society for 5 years in a row.
The Festival is going to celebrate its 5th anniversary’s Closing Night with 2 screening programmes and a presentation at Summerhall’s Red Lecture Theatre.
The night will begin with a screening of short films, The Edges of the Family Album, showing international short films on family stories that would not likely produce a snapshot for the photo album.
There will also be a screening of the result of the Dockma 48-hr film challenge followed by the grand-finale: the internationally acclaimed and multi-award winning feaure documentary COMPLICIT by Lynn Zhang & Heather White. A film shot below the radar for three years in China in the midst of an unprecedented human rights crackdown, the film is a character-driven, inspiring tale of young activists facing huge odds in their effort to reform China’s toxic smartphone factories.
An amusing contemporary romp about a single mother whose personal and professional life are
as volatile as an active volcano, from writer-director Justine Triet. Part of the Cinema on Sunday series.
All change begins with a story and In Our Hands is the story of the farmers who, through hope, hard-graft and sheer bloody mindedness are refusing to be victims of history.
A Short Film Screening Night presenting awarded films from the International Short Film Festival in Drama, followed by short films of nine UK based filmmakers showing their work inspired by this year’s theme, Utopias.
