The 2013 edition of the T24 Project, organized by the Toronto Youth Shorts Film Festival, will be screening on Thursday, March 7 at the Rainbow Cinemas Market Square. The T24 Project consists of nine teams setting out to make a short film with only 24 hours to do so. Each team was given an essay-based challenge question about the city's tensions on the modern and the retro, using parallels of architectural aesthetics and contemporary cinematic experiences as inspiration for their films. Out of nine teams, eight produced a film with six of them doing so within the 24 hour limit.
Here are the list of shorts screening in the program:
AROUND - Two young people grow into new surroundings.
CULTURE SHOCK - An explorer walks through the city, basking in its quaint sights.
FROM THE WOMB - A young woman seeks the help of a private detective and their journey takes them to strange places and beyond.
LEFTOVERS - Picking up a hitchhiker on his way into the city, a young man is taken to a feast filled with complications.
THE FLYING GAME - The life of a flyer man is thrown into turmoil when a new by-law outlaws the only thing he’s ever known.
HERE, THEN - Trapped in a closed off atmosphere, a trip to the ROM helps a young woman confront her issues with her surroundings.
ORGAN OF DARKNESS - A behind the scenes look at the latest film project by a group of young alternative new media artists.
C MINOR - Three people in a complicated triangle relationship are forced to confront their issues.
