Every week we will be carrying a weekly round-up of the films competing in The Malta Short Film Festival which is being shown on TVM every Tuesday.
A wide range of international and Maltese films of different genres are taking part. This week the programme focuses on documentaries.
Chernobyl: 25 Years Later
Stephen Fenech / Producer (Canada)
This documentary highlights a recent on-the-ground sortie to the very epicentre of what is considered the worst man-made environmental disaster of the 20th century.
Lost every day
Michelle Coomber / Director (USA/UK)
Sharon gets lost every day of her life, in the streets she lived in for years, and even in her own home.
Michelle Coomber / Director (Bangladesh/UK)
Once used for drinking water and small boat transport, the Buriganga River is now a hot bed of activity, commerce, and pollution. This film is a sobering view of the environmental impact modern day use has had on this major waterway.
The little team
Roger Gomez & Dani Resines/ Directors (Spain)
14 little kids go over an unsolved football mystery, and they end up teaching an unexpected life lesson to grown-ups.
