Short Film “The Time We’re In” Picked Up For 2015 Cannes Film Festival

After being successfully funded via Kickstarter, the short film “The Time We’re In” has been accepted to be a part of the 2015 Cannes Film Festival’ Short Film Corner.

The Short Film Corner proposes films from all over the world, most previously unseen, as well as the films included in the Official Cannes Film Festival Competition, the Cinéfondation, the Director’s Fortnight and Critic’s Week. The festival offers the chosen participants a place to network with all the biggest industry players: institutions, financiers and the most important international reps in the film business.

“The Time We’re In” follows the story of Gabriel and his wife Nadia as they learn of her recent cancer diagnosis. As Gabriel struggles with the news, he sets off on an internalized mental quest to help Nadia by any means possible… even learning to defy physics and warp reality by literally learning how to stop time. “The Time We’re In” is told in a stylistic non-linear fashion (à la “Memento”) with a slant toward a dramatic character piece. The sci-fi elements are important to the story but not the primary focus. The story’s central theme centers on the question; “what lengths would you go to save the one you love?”
