Despite only featuring 16 films in August, we had all the angles covered this month! Whether you were looking for films about the exotic pet trade, the contemporary Caribbean dance scene or sex toy mishaps, we had something for everyone, adding films to both our Family Friendly (three films this month) and our NSFW collections. And if that wasn’t enough, regularly featured filmmaker Paul Trillo joined us in conversation, to drop a little inspiration our way – “I want a short film to be a full meal”.
As always, we try to round-up the last month’s worth of coverage, by boiling it down to an extra tasty trio of shorts, voted for by the team here at S/W. August’s picks include; a cringeworthy comedy that flips to creepy thriller in the blink of eye, a darkly-comic adult-animation that remains totally true to its character and (ironically) his humanity and a gut-punch of a short that left a strong, tangible emotional impact on one of our writers.
