Covering everything from feral kids and bloodsoaked Westerns, to unhealthy relationships with cats, the 2017 Dark Owls International Fantasy Short Film Competition is packed with some of the most innovative and disturbing films we’ve been able to find. Judged by you, the audience, highlights include the brilliant Kafkaesque Gone and the poignant Lau and Laudrup, about two football-obsessed refugees trapped in a quarantined city. And ever wondered why street graffiti is always so badly spelled? Then you need to check out the Clanker Man!
