2011-05-13 2

While we’re keeping an eye on the latest Cannes news, we’re giving you a quick preview of this year’s official roster of short films from Cannes Cinefondation!

It’s that time of the year again, when directors set out to showcase their movie masterpieces in the world’s biggest film festival! Lomography and MUBI have something in the works with the organizers of Cinefondation, who selects some fifteen to twenty short and medium-length films each year from all over the world.

We’ve been keeping all things Cannes on close watch from our booth in Palais since Day 1, especially on the Short Film corner, whose directors we’ve given the chance to join our mini movie contest! The prize? Our newest, top secret Lomography camera!

Curious about this year’s line up of short films from the official Cannes Film Festival selection? Allow us to give you a preview, with 3 interesting picks from this year’s roster.

Bento Monogatari (Lunchbox Story)

Synopsis: A woman tries to put some new life into her failed marriage by delving into the world of Japanese pop-culture. Every morning, she prepares a cute Japanese lunchbox (Bento) for her husband.

A Viagem (The Trip)

Synopsis: António decides to break free of his mundane existence and rents a silver convertible to take his wife on a dream vacation. Everything seems perfect. Except he doesn’t know the way.

The Agony and Sweat of the Human Spirit

Synopsis: A quiet ukeleleist and his talkative manager struggle to realize their artistic vision in this comic story of loss and friendship.

    The Infallible Electric Eye

    By far the oddest-looking camera I own, the Electric Eye is an auto-exposure viewfinder camera made by Bell & Howell in the late 1950s. I picked one up online and ended up with another one, that came with a very cool, retro looking carrying case, from my grandfather. It took a little while to try these two out but after running some film I found that this camera is a lot of fun to shoot with.

    Guess Who’s Back… The Fleeting Return of the  Lomography Color Negative F²/400 Film

    Earlier this year we were chuffed to launch a very memorable type of 35mm film: the Lomography Color Negative F²/400. We had recovered it from the last ever supply of an Italian filmmaker, and stocked it for seven years in special conditions. Much sought after for the film's nostalgic aesthetic, beautiful blue tones, with hints of X-Pro character, the F²/400 35mm rolls flew off our shelves like hotcakes – and rapidly went out of stock worldwide.
