Reach: An Endearing Short Film

Organized by the Festival de Cannes and in its fifth year, the Short Film Corner is a 10-day forum for short filmmakers from around the world to showcase their short films to potential buyers and festival programmers.

Reach is one such short film, and is one of 10 finalists in the National Film Board of Canada’s online competition at this year’s Short Film Corner. Created by Australian animator Luke Randall, Reach tells the story of a tiny robot who wants to experience the outside world but a limitation is holding it back. I don’t think I need to tell you about the symbolism here.

It’s wonderfully animated, check it out.

The films from all 10 finalists are on YouTube. Internet votes will decide the best film, so vote for your favourite. The winner will be announced May 21st, 2009.
