DepicT! is Watershed’s international short film competition that, since its creation by Brief Encounters (Bristol) in 1998, has been challenging filmmakers to create 90 second ultra-short masterpieces. The focus is on uncovering emerging international filmmaking talent, which shows originality, imagination and the ability to engage in just a minute and a half.
All the shortlisted DepicT! films are screened at the extremely popular (and consistently sold out) DepicT! showcase, where the winners are announced in front of the audience. Winning films have regularly gone on to be screened at other international film festivals and cinemas across the UK and regularly get picked up by commercial distributors while many of the DepicT! filmmakers have gone on to carve themselves successful creative careers in the film industry and beyond.
This screening features some of the winning and short-listed films from 2016.
