‘Biting sharpness, a lingering afterglow, and the fire of a rough diamond.’ According to Short Shorts representative, actor Bessho Tetsuya, these are the attributes that make short films so attractive. One of the outstanding titles among the 1,481 entries that were submitted for this festival’s sixth installment include ‘Lost In Translation’ maker Sophia Coppola’s ‘Lick the Star’. It is reportedly some kind of prototype of the director’s film ‘The Virgin Suicides’, and this alone should be reason enough to watch it. Also on the program in this Olympic year are a number of Greek contributions. ‘Short Shorts Asia’, by the way, which is going to be held in October, is still calling for entries, so I recommend all filmmakers and video artists to send their works.
