If you were expecting the summer months to mean a lack of quality short film content released online, hopefully the 21-films we showcased throughout July proved this not to be the case. Featuring a host of festival favourites (Ugly, Superbia & Keeping Up with the Joneses) and a handful of shorts released directly online (Craig’s Pathetic Freakout, Sundays & A Play), alongside shorts from Cannes and BAFTA winning directors, I don’t think it would be an exaggeration to describe this as one of our biggest months on the site for a long time.
With that in mind, narrowing down those 21-films to a ‘Best of’ list was something we found very difficult this month. Usually whittling down a month’s worth of content to just three highlights, this month we’re highlighting four films that just can’t be missed. A quartet of live-action shorts, making up almost an hour of viewing, this playlist will really put you through the emotional wringer with its tales of love, loneliness and lingering lies.
