Saturday Shorts: Tripppin’

Incredible short films made by emerging young filmmakers aged 16-25.

Saturday 23 February 2019 3:00 PM

Total running time 79min

Come on a journey with this set of films exploring what it means to take a step into the unknown. Journeys can mean many things - some personal, some physical, but they all change us in some way. Across borders, dimensions, time and space, these films question what it means to go on a journey, and how journeys both big and small transform us forever.
