8 Dutch Shorts will be screened at this year’s Palm Springs Short Fest. The festival has divided all shorts in different theme days.
‘Man Up’ Theme:
‘One of the Boys‘ is part of this theme. At korfball practice, a timid young teenager finds himself forced to show his true colors after witnessing his fellow male players’ locker room banter take a cruel turn at the expense of the most popular girl on their team. The short will have its North American premiere at the festival.

‘Same Planet, Different Worlds’ Theme:
Dutch short Mind My Mind will screen at Palm Springs Shortfest. Mind My Mind is a film about how having a brain that is wired differently affects your social life, and particularly your love life. Flirting, sex and romantic relationships are very challenging for people with autism, as they are associated with thousands of unwritten rules and exceptions. The idea for this film is a result of the director’s professional and personal experiences with people with different forms of autism.
