EUNIC Short Shorts from Europe

EUNIC Short Shorts from Europe lands in Dublin after the summer date at Galway Film Fleadh!

Action, animation, drama – expect this and more from Short Shorts – a selection of European short films from the home countries of seven members of EUNIC Ireland (European Union National Institutes for Culture).
Let Austria, France, Germany, Ireland, Spain, the UK and – obviously – Italy entertain you with a variety of genres from contemporary, cutting-edge filmmakers.

The Italian short film selected by the IIC for this year’s edition is “Here Cometh the Moon” by Giulia di Battista and Gloria Kurnik.
Love is a net that traps our minds, but it’s not the only one. Vittoria learned to make fishing nets as a very young girl; now in her later years, she explains how we all swim in social expectations, toxic relationships and preconceptions.

Gloria Kurnik
Sentimentally attached to Asia, Gloria Kurnik is a Polish visual storyteller and filmmaker currently based in Malaysia. In her work, mostly inspired by the destinations she travels to, Gloria tries to create bridges between cultures highlighting with her stories the similarities underneath our apparent differences.
Gloria’s first short, “Confined”, an experimental story inspired by the women of the bygone Rajasthan, won the India Is Film Challenge 2013. Her second narrative short “Spinning a Yarn?” won the Grand Prize during the Faces of Wisdom Short Film Competition 2014 in Finland.
She’s the Grand Prize Winner (Achievement Award) of the CinemadaMare 2015 travelling film campus and festival in Italy.
