Film of the Week: A Little Grey

A Little Grey by Simon Hewitt & Steve Smith (2016) (UK) (5m)

A Little Grey had played at numerous international film festivals before being entered into the FILMSshort Film Festival. It is a beautifully made animation that asks a simple question: is there any cure for being a little grey? One man’s search takes him through bars, churches, doctor’s surgeries, tattoo parlours and beyond, but will he find what he’s looking for? It is a colourful story about losing your spark and finding redemption.


Dead Bird

Letters by Anthony Hett (2014) (UK) (9m)

A finalist in the competition, Letters is a poignant tale of friendship between a young postman and a lonely old man, although we never actually meet the latter. It is a subtle story that explores the relationship between the younger and older generations in modern Britain, as well as taking an intimate look at how lonely it can be living alone in a big city like London. It played at various short film festivals before being submitted to the FILMSshort Online Festival.

The Landing by Josh Tanner (2013) (USA) (17m)

The Landing takes place over two timelines, with most of it set on a secluded American farm during the height of the Cold War. The young Edward lives there with his alcoholic and war-weary father. When something falls from the sky, the boy watches his father drag something living from it, which he keeps hidden in the barn and proceeds to torture. The second timeline sees Edward some forty years later when, having just lost his father, he digs up the alien spacecraft.

Duel at Blood Creek

The Gunfighter by Eric Kissack (2013) (USA) (9m)

The Gunfighter sees a gunslinger walk into a saloon but followed by a voiceover that everyone in the bar can hear (a conceit similar to the 2006 feature film Stranger Than Fiction, where the main character can hear his life being described in a voiceover). The problem for the gunfighter is that the voiceover is painfully honest, which presents various problems. However, the others in the saloon soon find that they are not immune from the brutal veracity of the voiceover. How will they escape the seemingly inescapable?

Sequence by Carles Torrens (2013) (USA) (20m)

A (comedy) horror short film, it tells the story of Billy, a burger flipper who wakes up one day to find that the entire world, including his girlfriend, has had a nightmare about him. Everyone, from his employer to his girlfriend to the man he tries to save during an armed robbery, thus turns against him. Having been left a mysterious note telling him that You're It, it is clear that this is only going to be a temporary issue. However, his life looks like it could ruined in the meantime...


The Missing Scarf by Eoin Duffy (2013) (Ireland) (7m)

The Missing Scarf won many awards on the short film festival circuit, including at the LA Shorts Fest. The Missing Scarf tells the story of the wise squirrel, Albert, who encounters a series of distracted animals in his journey through the woods while searching for his missing scarf. Albert is able to impart an ever-increasing level of insight into the animals' fears, including a bear's morbid fear of non-existence. However, can words really defend us against the inevitability of our demise?
