IPTC INFO
CaptionEach year we travel the globe and watch thousands of films in search of outstanding works to program. In reviewing this year's 1 500 submissions we found many works that reflect our strange and uncertain times. In light of that we've put together a special shorts program Bushwhacked! highlighting filmmakers' responses to the political climate in advance of this year's US presidential election. For this year's festival identity who better to represent RESFEST's international reach than kozyndan the LA-based illustrators whose whimsical panoramic illustrations of cities around the world often under siege by monsters SARS viruses and bunnies portray their simultaneous unease with and love of the modern world. We turned to the acclaimed studio Motion Theory to - literally - bring this year's identity to life for our festival opener. It is a work of art in its own right rivaling this year's short films in its inventiveness. Back in 1999 we premiered Richard Kenworthy's student short film The Littlest Robo. That same year we screened an amazing music video for UNKLE directed by Jonathan Glazer. Five years later Shynola the animation collective of which Kenworthy is a member and Glazer have built impressive bodies of work and their names are synonymous with originality. Glazer the subject of this year's Director Retrospective has created some of the most cinematic commercials and music videos of our time. He made the successful transition to the big screen with his feature debut Sexy Beast in which Ben Kingsley shed his Gandhii image once and for all and we eagerly await his second feature Birth set for release at the end of the year. For our program Glazer handpicked a selection of his work from the past 10 years including rare "making of" films that give a glimpse behind the scenes of his productions.
