Britain 2013

May 16 at 19:00 and 21:00 @ Lviv Palace of Arts a screening of British short films will take place. Watch Teaser.

Nine short films will show viewers possible ways of (self)contemplation through desperate struggle with the system, through a desire to restore the old and start new relationships, through romantic troubles, discover the true face behind the mask of superheroes, and force to drown in a sea of laughter from the bizarre situations.
Ironic, intelligent and witty shorts – the award winners of many British and international festivals.
