Little Films Screening

Unknown - Confirmed: Jul. 26, 2011 (Awaiting Update)
Check out some great short films from a handful of local and international artists.

Inside Rosie’s mind she sees herself as beautiful and intelligent …to society, she is seen only as autistic. Rosie’s determined to break through the stereotype of her condition and communication barriers ‘U’ and ‘I’ take for granted.

A sweet tale that blends live action and animation with a unique take on what you think you know about someone who’s different. Winner of 8 Awards including Best Canadian Short at the 2010 Canada International Film Festival, Okanagan International Film Festival, and the Vancouver Short Film Festival where it also won Best Director, Best Screenplay, Best Cinematography, Best Editor, and Best Actor Jodelle Ferland.

After the reversal of Earth's magnetic fields a withdrawn young man loses his way while trying to meet up with his family.

Prinzip Zufall (Random Principle) is a German film (with English subtitles) made in 2011, and we are proud to be screening it at Olio Festival alongside several other stellar shorts. Directed by Romeo Grünfelder, Prinzip Zufall is a 25 minute film about psycho-physicist Dr. Johannes Hagel, who relates to synchronicity phenomenons that can hardly be validated. According to Hagel's hypothesis, a toy train set shows the predicted anomalies after thousands of passes. Finally a broken bulb shows even to the son, who seems to live in a parallel soccer universe, that his father's experiments have far more impact than assumed. Watch the trailer here: Prinzip Zufall will play at Cineworks on Thursday, September 22nd on a bill that includes Everything Louder Than Everything Else, and several other international flicks as a part of Olio Festival's Little Films.

Can a relationship based solely on great sex survive? Within the bonds of physicality the struggles of Chloe and Adam to find meaning beyond their sadomasochistic romance lead them to be caught between demands of the flesh and their differing emotions. A vicious cycle of dependence and desire seems to have no end as both begin searching for more, yet refuse to relinquish each others holds over one another.

Scary very scary! A man meets his ultimate nightmare fantasy
