The Fantastic Shorts of TS+FF 2019!

Here they are: the three fully packed short films sections of the Trieste Science+Fiction Festival!

European Fantastic Shorts – Méliès d’argent competition

Borders have been moved further. The search for infinity is inward-looking. Who are we? Where do we come from? In order to grasp the mechanisms of the human mind, we have tried to reproduce it, often with abnormal results. What is left is the human being and his/her fight for survival against the unknown.

Spazio Corto

Borders are a matter of perspective and they are frightening. Depending on the direction people are taking in crossing them, there are those who are scared and build walls and those who have trust and want to be free of them. So borders are above all a state of mind. But they do exist and will always exist. They are undefined areas of contamination and experimentation for explorers of what is already known. Spazio Corto is the border we prompt you to cross in search of your fears and hopes; a fantastic lab to get to meet your fellow travellers.
