Award winning international short films from different countries will be screened at the latest edition of Future Shorts ONE, a monthly film festival, that will be held next week in Hanoi.

 

One of them is Radiostan, a journey from Kyrgyzstan to Moscow, in which people's lives are turned in and out like the changing frequencies on a radio.

 

Children discuss life's eternal dilemma of having permanent teeth in Klaus Kjeldsen's The Loose Tooth. A kaleidoscope of colors and heads make up the strange landscape of I Like U, the debut music video for French indie rockers The Chase.

 

Other highlights include Stuck In a Groove, A Family Portrait, La Dame Au Chien, and winner of Best the British Short Film award at the 2010 Edinburgh International Film Festival, Baby.

 

Unlike other film festivals, Future Shorts ONE, launched in Hanoi last November, aims to bring short films to every corner of society, taking place in bars, warehouses, theaters, cinemas and elsewhere.

 

Since 2003, Future Shorts has created a rapidly expanding network that gives filmmakers an opportunity to have their films seen on the largest theatrical platform worldwide.

 

This month's program will start on August 20 at 7 p.m. with a live music performance by singer Phuong Dang, and then continue with a show of Vietnamese short films from 8 p.m. International short films will be screened at 9 p.m. and end with a DJ performance one hour later.

 

Tickets costing VND50,000 can be brought at Le Cooperative, 46 An Duong, Tay Ho Dist., Hanoi.
