Future Shorts Presents: Dances With Love

A new short film experience touring from February 2009. In association with the BFI

Future Shorts dances with love this February with the launch of an exclusive selection of short films inspired by love, sex, happiness and everything in between. Premiering at the Brixton Ritzy on Valentines weekend, the programme will then tour the UK.

Films include the beautiful and haunting Little Minx Exquisite Corpse: Come Wander With Me - part of a fascinating project inspired by a surreal parlour game, Wrestling, Grimur Hakonarson's love story about two gay wrestlers living in rural Iceland and Top Girl a tender truthful and brutally comic tale set in Brixton. Love and happiness in all its twisted forms will be explored in a cinema experience like no other.

In association with the BFI, Future Shorts are also proud to present a rarely seen short from Jeff Keen, a leading light of the British experimental film scene, which will be shown ahead of the main programme.

Each venue will be adding its own unique touch to the Dances with Love experience, bringing together local film-makers, musicians and especially dancing under one roof for an unforgettable night.
