GILT, 22min, UK, Thriller/Drama
Directed by Julian Stevens

Searching for a legendary hoard of gold coins, a man is goaded to unearth the darkness buried within.

Director Statement:

With GILT we set out to create a filmic space from the landscape that would reflect Paige’s internal phycological state. A supernatural menace is hinted at, but never made explicit. We wanted to embrace the uncanny, the dreamy, and a sense of foreboding.

I was interesting in exploring shifting perspectives, wrong footing the viewer with reveals, hidden pasts, and secret bestial inner natures.

Audiences will see nods to Nick Roeg in the time jumps, and oblique story-telling, and early Polanski in the intense visualisations of disjointed inner worlds, along with other stylised, psychological, surreal films of the 1970s.

Anna Bogacz atmospheric photography makes use of soft, rich images and primary colours, and Chris Kemsley’s haunting, off-key score contributes to this distinctive, immersive world.

GILT features a characterful, menacing performance from Tim Bentinck (David Archer in Radio 4s’ The Archers, and numerous TV and film appearances), and a blistering, emotional intensity from new-comer Christopher Hughes.

Get to know the THRILLER Short Film: LE PARDON

Playing at the October 27th Horror/Thriller FEEDBACK Short Film Festival. Get your FREE TICKETS

  MOVIE POSTERLE PARDON, 5min, USA, Thriller/Mystery
Directed by Margarethe Baillou

Set in late 19th century New Orleans, LE PARDON portrays an unusual dialog between a man and a woman: he is heard but not seen, and she is seen but never speaks. A ghostly fictional short film, it is a tale of forgiveness and the art of listening, a poem about an almost encounter and an hommage to the Crescent City. French with English subtitles.

Director Statement:

LE PARDON zooms in on one of the most human needs there is: dignity, both one’s own as well as that of others. In this case, it is achieved through a dialog based on both honesty and regard therefor. A male and a female share a dialog about his broken heart. He is heard but not seen; she is seen but stays silent throughout, listening. In the end, there is closure.

Artistically, I decided to mirror the narrative dialog with the most fundamental synergy in film: visuals and audio.

I wrote LE PARDON in one sitting one day while in Toronto. Repeatedly, I attempted to add on to it, but it always felt like wearing one too many pieces of jewelry. I finally gave up and accepted its length. One and a half years later, after many months of searching for the right location for LE PARDON, I visited New Orleans for the first time and was instantly taken by the city’s humbling beauty and its almost spiritual love for the arts. I had rarely seen a place that embraced every visitor so generously the way New Orleans does. Still recovering from Hurricane Katrina, the city has rebuilt niches for its most defining inhabitants: artists and their passionate worlds. Having lost so many people and homes, it welcomes new ones. I knew New Orleans was capable of meeting my little story at eye level. Just in time before the Holidays, LE PARDON had found a home.

After reviewing the script with my fellow producer, Madeline S. McEneney, we began reaching out to New Orleans, and with local help from our production manager, Pamela Moriarty, the production schedule shaped up quickly. We flew in on a Monday and went straight to casting. That same night, we selected an actress, Nicole Barre, rehearsed on Tuesday, shot on Wednesday at the Benachi House and wrapped on Thursday. On Friday, we were back on a plane to New York. During that short time, we were invited to the homes of two of our crew members who had known us for only a few days, an example of the extraordinary warmth and hospitality of the people of New Orleans.

Our New York casting director, Judy Bowman, found our “Male Voice”. Mario Brassard walked into the room and stunned us all by delivering his lines so perfectly and in the exact way I had always read them to others that it made me wonder if he was in fact able to read my mind. His recordings at HSR I NY took less than half an hour. The film’s mood was accentuated by the dreamlike, slightly uncanny score by Jody Gray and bookend theme by “Music Box Man”, John Morton, who handcrafted a music box on which to play his composition.

LE PARDON is a small, delicate film, a kind of a blink-of-an-eye story, a glimpse offering admission to a lover’s soul, a reflection on the art of listening and my personal hommage to the spiritually indestructible Crescent City..

  MOVIE POSTERA FILM BY VERA VAUGHN, 10min, USA, Thriller/Sci-Fi
Directed by Sorrel Brae

In this supernatural digital-age thriller, a filmmaker falls through the looking glass when she must face her own terrifying creation.

Director’s Statement:

DIRECTORS’ NOTES

A successful film should challenge its audience with a unique point of view. But before it can challenge it must first engage, which is why I set out to create a psychologically probing film embedded in the trojan horse of a genre movie. The goal is an entertaining film that leaves its audience asking questions and, ultimately, investing themselves in the answers.

What is the nature of identity? What psychological consequences are implicated from the power of the creative process? Is there a part of yourself you would destroy if you could? And would you then still be yourself? How does a growing psychological isolation parallel our age of hyper-connectivity?

These are just a few of the questions that inspired “A Film By Vera Vaughn”. I hope you enjoy our exploration and look forward to hearing your thoughts.

Thank you for your time and consideration.

Watch the Audience FEEDBACK of the Short Film: 

  MOVIE POSTERPREFERENTIAL OPERATION, 20min, Spain, Thrille/Drama
Directed by Roger Comella & Carles Velat

Four masked men kidnap the director of a bank branch in an unremarkable town. They put him in a van and ask him 90,000 euro from his own pocket.

Director’s Statement:

DIRECTORS’ NOTES

“Operacion Preferente” (Preference Operation) is a short film we like to classify as “Social Thriller”. That is, a story about a social reality with suspense, mystery and a touch of humor and action. We wish to reach the largest audience possible and be able to make them aware of this social conflict; preference shares.

The plot is inspired by a true story that happened in Germany a few years ago; three men kidnapped the director of a bank to make him return all their savings, which had been deposited in a fraudulent retirement plan. Based on this true story, we have created a fiction about the social drama caused by the preference shares in Spain.

“Operacion Preferente” takes place in an unremarkable town, pretty small, where everybody knows each other. A place where the “by word of mouth” and “I have something that may interest you” spread like the plague, no matter whether you are a stranger, a neighbour, the father of a friend or a relative: the temptation of money makes no distinction.
