Short film package: Funny Games


The lighter side of life is explored in this humorous programme, but be warned – there are also some darker undertones lurking in one or two of these shorts. The Sporadic Film Collective’s mantra of ‘one idea, one meeting, one day of shooting’ works wonders once again as their brilliantly funny short about how not to propose to someone testifies; We Retired People is a masterclass in comic writing and timing, and the innovative, award-winning As We’re Told takes the seemingly mundane topic of bureaucracy within a job centre and turns it on its head – it’s a joy to behold.
