Writing these ‘end of year’ lists can be tricky. Too often we’re influenced by what they say about us and end up writing the list that projects the perfect image or the list you feel makes you look most knowledgeable. This year I decided to take a slightly different approach.
So this list isn’t claiming to feature the ten best shorts we’ve featured on Short of the Week, but the ten films I was most excited to share on the site. The ten shorts I couldn’t stop talking about. The ten shorts that surprised me the most. The ten shorts I haven’t been able to get out of my head all year.
Sometimes as a curator you have to pander to the taste of your audience, but sometimes you just want to say f*ck it and pick the films you love.
Side note: here are some notable absentees from this list that are very good films, just on a personal level I can’t stomach any more films about technology (social media in particular), drugs and anything overly saccharine.
