America will be screened in the official selection at Edinburgh Short Film Festival on 15th June 2014 (7.30-9.30pm, The Red Cinema, Summerhall).
This year the ESFF will screen 58 short films, representing filmmakers from 18 countries around the world. The programme includes 26 UK premieres and the world premiere of ‘Unbearable’ by Khaliq Akbar and 23 award-winning films. The festival runs from 6 to 15 June 2014.
The international flavour of the programme is enhanced by ESFF’s collaboration with the Shanghai based film collective Kan Kan Media. Kan Kan Media have curated a special programme of short films set to be screened on Saturday 7th June at Summerhall. Working closely with Iranian and Chinese filmmakers the programme promises to shed light on cinema from two countries that have received relatively little exposure in the UK before.
