A Distant Episode

Saturday 26th September / 7PM @ The Maltings Theatre & Cinema

A meditation on the illusion of filmmaking shot behind-the-scenes of a film made on the otherworldly beaches of Sidi Ifni, Morocco. A Distant Episode depicts strange activities with no commentary or dialogue; it appears as a fragment of film, dug up in a distant future in its portrayal of a hazy black-and-white and hallucinogenic world.

Screening as part of the Inntravel Short Film Awards. Our Awards programme is central to the Festival and represents some of the most exciting and ambitious contemporary filmmakers working today. An international jury, featuring filmmakers Beatrice Gibson and Salomé Lamas alongside curator Fatos Üstek, will present Inntravel’s prestigious award following the screening.
