Note: I assembled this list to counter claims – such as those by Alexander Voulgaris- that the movies screened at the Short Film Festival of Drama are nothing but backass backwards conservative uncreative graduation shorts by students who are feeling the hot breath of their film school teachers breathing down their necks and are hence given to self-censorship, the result being what Alexander Voulgaris had referred to (before he locked up his Facebook account to hide his comments) as an εμετοφεστιβαλ (literally, “a puke-inducing festival”) with lackluster and uninteresting movies. This list is only a sample of the wide array of films being screened at the festival. many of my personal favourite shorts aren’t online or are no longer online. To my great frustration I couldn’t even find a trailer for some of the shorts I really wanted to include in my list, shorts which have clearly disappeared into obscurity. Maybe if self-declared cinephiles had spent more time getting the shorts more exposure rather than bashing the festivals screening them, maybe these short movies wouldn’t have disappeared without leaving as much as a trailer behind.
