Watch: Seventy Short Films By Seventy Of The World's Finest Directors

To celebrate the 70th Venice International Film Festival the Biennale di Venezia invited seventy directors from around the world to create sixty to ninety second short films. All the directors that accepted the challenge have been at the festival at some point in the last two decades.

The shorts, all screened under the banner of Venezia 70 – Future Reloaded, were a tribute to the last seventy years of the festival and also a look to the future.

With the festival now over the shorts have all been placed online and can be watched at la Biennale di Venezia YouTube Channel.

I've embedded a few below to whet your appetite but I can highly recommend heading to the YouTube channel to watch them all.
