Attention span of a fish

So this is why I thoroughly enjoy the Rushes Short Film Festival screenings this weekend. I saw the series of independentally produced films from Newcomer and established director/screenwriters. They ranged from dark to really funny and showcased some really interesting uses of the camera.

The festival is on at the ICA until Friday 20th. Definitely go πŸ™‚
