Competition Countdown: Strange Beauty

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


Screening at 14:00 Fri 19 September at Watershed

Prepare to be taken on a journey through a surreal and decidedly odd landscape. Some of the strongest and boldest films from this year’s submissions are found here; from the visual music of Mizue to the weird creatures of Wada. The landscapes, textures and sounds shift and flow to create a colourful sense of wonder and delight.
