At this year's Festival de Cannes, Mia Maxwell (Film & TV - BA [Hons]) was selected to screen her short film - Siempre, Hasta Luego - in the Short Film Corner.
Mia's film is a reflection on our adult concept of childhood. It asks what children do when they are not being observed by adults, looking beyond the clichés of candy and playgrounds to find more complex desires that are often in conflict with the adults around them. It attempts to rediscover the child, and invites the audience to access their own innocence, playfulness and inner desires.
The Short Film Corner is billed as a meeting place for professionals all over the world. Since 2004, short film producers and directors have chosen the Short Film Corner as the place to present their films, network and take steps towards their future careers. It is also a place to bridge the gap between short and feature films.
