The London Short Film Festival, the city’s most expansive and radically explosive film festival, has been growing year on year since 2003 to take in more films, live music, industry and training and diverse, high quality venues. With over 200 short films, LSFF’s programme is exclusively with the work of Britain’s most exciting up-and-coming filmmakers. Each year the country’s most fiercely independent and creative can see their work grace the screens of the capital’s most prestigious cinemas, having a history of sneaking renegades and eccentrics onto the city’s film scene.
In collaboration with LSFF founder and director Philip Ilson, 2ANNAS hosts a special screening of the award-winning films from the festival’s 2011 edition.

Threesome, Johannes Dullin, 2010, fiction/experimental, 10'

Pornsites are the most clicked websites ever. Is porn the answer to our unmistakable need for physical contact or just one of its aspects? In any case the physical touch forms the center of Threesome. The film explores what comes across as the phenomenon porn and observes it in its very own way.

Monumento (Monument), Devis Venturelli, IT, 2010, experimental, 2'

The film is the progressive approach to a mysterious, transformed object. What we have is an ordinary truck tractor, a recurring element in highway non-places, parked and covered with
a veil. The traveling monument of our streets, the truck, is portrayed as it lies still, isolated from the container it carries behind.

Prémices (First Fruits), Pao Paixao, CH, 2011, fiction, 30'

A coming of age story turning into a drama. Inspired by The story of the Eye from G. Bataille, this movie shows the loss of innocence through the exploration of sexuality. It also stresses the compulsive behaviour of a young generation which build their identity through the digitalisation of their private life.
