AFDA films screening at Cannes Short Film Corner 2017

March 23, 2017 1:21 pm

AFDA Johannesburg 3rd year 2016 experimental film, ‘Scene’ and AFDA Cape Town 3rd year 2016 graduation film, ‘Darling, You’re Mine’, have been accepted to screen at the Cannes Short Film Corner 2017.

The Cannes International Film Festival is one of the most prestigious film festivals in the world, but premiering, screening, and awarding the best feature films isn’t all that Cannes has to offer. Cannes Short Film Corner is an event that allows the creators of short films an opportunity to show their projects to a massive audience, pitch future projects, and hopefully make many important connections as well.

The Short Film Corner began in 2004 as a way to recognize short filmmakers as the next generation of feature filmmakers, and to provide them with official access to the Cannes festival and market, along with unique educational and networking opportunities.

The short films in the SFC include those from various sections in the festival, such as the Official Selection, Cinefoundation, and Director’s Fortnight.

Darling, You’re Mine


Set in USA in the 1950s, Marleen Milligan comes from a family that values women to become perfect housewives, but Marleen is set on making a career as an actress. She is given the opportunity of a lifetime when landing the lead role in a feature film with an American production company that is traveling to Africa to shoot. The path of fulfilling her dream is challenged when the director of the film, a 60- year old male, is slowly pushing her limits by sexually abusing her and manipulation her into an unprofessional relationship.
