Best of the Fest 3

Total: 87 mins 21 secs

The last of our Best of the Fest programmes brings ‘laugh out loud’ comedies, award winning dramas and poetic monologues to the table.  Here we are transported to the injustices of living in multicultural communities, and witness the exploitation of a struggling actor.  We watch a man try to swim his way out of trouble and go back in time to a Christmas ‘like the ones we all used to know’.

Saturday 16th October Available for 48 hrs from 8:00pm

There’s a man floating around in an indoor swimming pool. The police order him to get out, to be arrested, but the man refuses. Swimmer is a humorous short film about a dramatic arrest that turns into an anticlimax.
