Watch the first of our British Competitions to escape, break and reconstruct the status quo, as characters, narratives and visuals get carried away. In a transformative and explorative collection of shorts, we’re showcasing the highest standard of British filmmaking, examining the change, growth and transition of religion, love, identity and existence. From the burgeoning teenage desire for a postman in the endearing comedy Sticky, to the beautiful and experimental animated depiction of a mother and child seeking asylum in Mamoon, our BAFTA qualifying programme has it all.
