A selection of films from the shortlist for the Best Short Film Prize at the 2019 Austrian Film Academy Film Awards. The programme includes all three nominees, BESTER MANN, VIRGIN WOODS and the eventual prizewinner, EXCUSE ME I’M LOOKING FOR THE PING-PONG ROOM AND MY GIRLFRIEND. In BESTER MANN, shy teenager Kevin is taken in by the older Bennie, in a disturbing tale about the vulnerability of youth, the power of intimacy and the murky motives that often lie behind supposedly innocent actions. Shot on 16mm film, the ethereal VIRGIN WOODS (ZALESIE) is a dreamlike story about one young woman’s innocent ideas about love and death. The winner of the Best Short Film Award, EXCUSE ME… follows Aron as he wanders the bizarre world of the corridors and rooms of an Austrian mountain health resort, looking for his girlfriend following an argument.
This screening is organised in partnership with Theresa Guczogi of the University of Hull, and is one of nine screenings taking place in partnership with universities across the UK and Ireland. The screening is sponsored by the Austrian Cultural Forum London.
Your ticket allows you to come and go for the duration of the 3-4 hour programme with an appropriate break in between curated sections.
