The European Film Academy’s Short Matters tour is a brilliant panorama of young contemporary European filmmaking. The short film initiative is organised in co-operation with a series of film festivals throughout Europe. At each of these festivals an independent jury nominates one short film from their competition. We’ll be screening all the nominated films, and the winner, over three programmes. Part Three includes the European Short Film Award winner at the European Film Awards winner 9 DAYS – FROM MY WINDOW IN ALEPPO
The programme includes:
- WE ALL LOVE THE SEA SHORE
Keina Espiñeira | 2016 | Spain | 17 mins | ExperimentalA group of men is waiting at the fringes of a coastal woodland for the journey to Europe. They get trapped in a temporal threshold. A film is shot there with the men playing themselves. The landscape changes and where they are is no longer their motherland. There are no beautiful beaches, the water is not transparent, not clear. Legends from the colonial past collide with the present time, memory survives.
- SHOOTING STAR
Lyubo Yonchev | 2015 | Bulgaria/Italy | 28 mins | FictionLilly is a divorced mother of two – Martin, who has recently come of age, and little Alexandra. One cold winter evening Martin picks Alexandra up from kindergarten. In the dark streets of the neighbourhood they become a part of a tragic accident that can hardly be forgotten or erased. Lilly and her kids have to make tough decisions, the consequences of which will change their life for good.
- 9 DAYS – FROM MY WINDOW IN ALEPPO

Konstantina Kotzamani | 2016 | France/Greece | 30 mins | FictionThe leopard shall lie down with the goat.
The wolves shall live with the lambs.
And the young boy will lead them.
12+1 kids and the carcass of a whale washed ashore …
- IN THE DISTANCE
Florian Grolig | 2015 | Germany | 7 mins | AnimationIt’s calm and peaceful above the clouds. But chaos lurks in the distance and each night, it draws closer.
Our monthly Short Film City Hull programme showcases the best of short films from around the world. We know that short film is not always the first thing that comes to mind for a night out so to encourage you to give this under appreciated format a try we run these nights on a pay-what-you-want basis. The recommended price is £4 but you can choose whatever you feel is right.
7:00pm: Doors open. Why not grab a drink from Fruit’s bar and settle in for the film? Fruit has a selection of over 50 beers, including world lagers, ales, bitters, stouts and ciders as well as a range of craft, trappist, abbey and wheat beers. They also offer wines, hand pulled ales, tea & coffee, spirits and bar snacks.
7.30pm: Programme starts. There will be at least one interval.
9.30pm: Programme ends. Post-screening we’ll be having a drink in the bar and would love for you to join us and chat about the films.
The programme run time includes an allowance for introductions and trailers. This may vary and in some cases the film will begin immediately after a short introduction. While we will endeavour to accommodate latecomers, this may not always be possible. Please note that we reserve the right to refuse entry, without a refund, to anyone arriving after the advertised programme start time.
