Programme overview

The Short Cinema believes that one of the most important aspects of any film is its audience—especially its devoted audience, those who truly take it to heart and serve as its champions. There is nothing more exciting than loving a story and having the opportunity to share it with others.

Our Member Curators’ Screening is an opportunity for three MyPhoenix Members, chosen after a competitive application process, to do just that: select films that they felt needed to be seen by a wider audience. From one group of cinema lovers to another, this anthology of poignant short films explores the full gamut of the human experience.

This programme will be introduced by the curators.
