To start off:

The Future Reloaded-series commissioned by the Venice Film Festival.

A couple of these are uninteresting and/or bad, but most were worth watching and I figured if it would be strange to just omit two-three of them. But ideally we only post excellent shorts here.

70 movie directors from all over the world have been invited to make a short film lasting between 60 and 90 seconds, in total creative freedom. The invitation has been accepted by great maestros, well-known directors, and young filmmakers of recognized talent. All have participated at the Venice Film Festival at least once over the past twenty years.

Future Reloaded is both a collective movie tribute to the Festival (the world’s first film festival to celebrate its 70th edition) and a reflection on the future of cinema, as filtered through the personal artistic insight of each of the participating directors.


Paul Schrader




Yorgos Lanthimos




Atom Egoyan




James Franco




Catherine Breillat




Walter Salles




Athina Rachael Tsangari




Bernardo Bertolucci




Ulirch Seidl




Tobias Lindholm

my favorites: my dad is 100 years old and the heart of the world - guy maddin.  perfect in every way.






INT. trailer. night - jim jarmusch.  jarmusch distilled.  a really lovely, succinct expression of a singular style and perspective.




dans l'obscurite - the dardenne brothers.  their most direct tribute to bresson in the form of a terribly moving 2 and a half minutes.  and i'm pretty sure that's rosetta.




the grandmother - david lynch.  typically unsettling lynch.  this one's really fucked up.




a sense of history - mike leigh.  not particularly noteworthy as a cinematic achievement, but it's really fucking funny and i love it.

Have you guys seen The Alphabet by David Lynch? I made the mistake of watching it by myself really late at night, alone with headphones on. I swear David Lynch makes some of the most frightening work on the planet. I tell my friends to have the same experience I had with this short film. Most have felt strongly about the experience.

Gaspar Noe - Intoxication (2002)

Not something you would expect from him.

Simple mind - simple pleasures...
