Competition Countdown: Dreamlike States

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


Screening at 10:30 Fri 19 September at Watershed

Visionary, immaterial, sometimes hallucinatory, these short films are brought together by an aesthetic and storytelling approach straddling the elusive line between reality and imagination. Combining flights of fantasy, intoxicated states, sensory immersions and nightmarish descents, the fabric of this programme is such stuff as dreams are made of.
