leave a comment »

The ninth edition of In The Palace International Short Film Festival, held from June 18-25 in Balchik, Bulgaria, brought together more than 150 filmmakers from five continents.

Cinematographers from South and North America, Europe, Asia, and North Africa presented work in four categories: fiction, animation, experimental, and documentary.

Among the shorts in the competition was a modern-day adaptation of the Medusa myth, Red in the Water by Mikel Gurrea, a young director from San Sebastian, Spain.

The Extraordinary Life of Rocky by Belgian filmmaker Kevin Meul was among the audience’s favorites for its dark humor and clever story.

Another Belgian, Wim Geudens, won the award for best script and sound with his Beats of Love, a story about a man in search of sounds to conquer the heart of his dream woman.

Gregg Helvey, Academy award winner for best student short film was also present at the festival with his film Kavi a story examining modern-day slavery.
