Madness and Civilisation: International Short Film Competition 5

Online Event
A man has his eyes closed, hands over his mouth.
Dates and times

15 Nov 2020 - 30 Nov 2020

Online Event

Often, but not always, rambunctious in tone, these films traverse the abattoirs and bouzoukis of the Greek psyche; the curious entanglement of a Norwegian businessman and his secret foreign lover; the underbelly of the rural French countryside; a crazed media-frenzy after a murder on the Greek-Albanian border; the hidden depths of the Swiss sunflower-kissed countryside, and Will Ferrell as a rather convincing psychiatrist grappling with two very contrasting patients with the same name.

Showing online on Leeds Film Player from 3 November. Visit for more information.
