Competition Countdown: Out of the Ordinary

In the countdown to this year's Encounters Festival we share a selection of trailers from each of the International Competition Screenings.

SHORT FILM 2: OUT OF THE ORDINARY (15)

Screening at 12:30 Wed 17 September at Watershed

Everyday people and everyday stories.  Small moments shared. The day-to-day dramas unfolding in a shopping mall or down a telephone line. Unexpected encounters disrupting the humdrum of mundane routines. The selection in this programme demonstrates how short films have the gift of capturing those seemingly insignificant events of life and reveal how extraordinary they can actually be.
