Four sections of the shnit Worldwide Shortfilmfestival 2020 international competition will feature 19 shorts made across the world, covering a wide range of subjects, from the digitization of life (Story; No Ill Will; Life Goes On) to the apocalypse (Postcards from the End of the World; Jupiter; I'm Listening).
Genres and style vary from an existential western (Coffin) and a guide to insurance fraud (The Art of Lying) to a culinary thriller (Cru) and a coming-of-age drama set against the reality of the slave trade and femicide (Sin Cielo). The program also includes animation shorts, including explicit and sometimes shocking ones (Sh_t Happens; My Generation; Animals; Ghost Eye; No, I Don't Want to Dance!; Deepness of the Fry). Many of the films in the program have competed at international festivals, including in Venice (Electric Swan) and Cannes (The Van).
