Glimpses of Maturity: International Short Film Competition 1

Online Event
Two young people stand in front of a fan, eyes closed.
Dates and times

4 Nov 2020 - 30 Nov 2020

Online Event

Maturity is such a difficult concept, full of shifting perspectives and many questions. In this programme, we witness a grieving child querying the relevance of his faith; a boy wondering if he can temporarily convert to Islam to experience Ramadan with his friend; a foreigner in Ghana asking the help of two energetic kids for his dubious assignment; a tenacious girl questioning how and why she can ferry a fridge across the Palestinian border, and how a gentle enquiry sparks a serious examination of an Ethiopian’s musical heritage.
Showing online on Leeds Film Player from 3 November. Visit for more information.
