Future Shorts Film Screenings
Since the winter of 2012 up until now, Svitac has hosted 9 FutureShorts film festivals. The first four screenings were coordinated by EVS volunteer Sarah Bennet, before being taken overby Sanjin Vošanović in the summer of 2013.
Throughout three years of screenings in Brčko, local and international volunteers have participated in preparation and organisation of every event through promotions, technical assistance, documentation and decorating.
Future Shorts is the world’s biggest pop up film festival promoting and celebrating short films around the world, connecting audiences to film and building a global community through live events. Since launching in November 2011, screenings have taken place in over 300 cities in 90 countries with an audience of more than 45,000 people experiencing a showcase of the best short film has to offer. Future Shorts festivals take place four times every year and give people the opportunity to see cutting edge short films from around the world.
For the community in Brčko this provides unique opportunity to watch nominated movies from prestigios film festivals like: Sundance, Berlinale, Barcelona Visual Sound, Glasgow Film Festival and many more. Also, some movies won prizes such as a: BAFTA Film Award, French Film Industry Awards and the Hong-Kong IFF- Firebird Award.
Our most recent screening (for the Spring Season of 2015) was on Friday the 15th of May at the Youth Centre in Brčko. The next screening event (for the Summer Season) is scheduled for August 2015.
