Australian Short Film Today 2018

The annual screening of award winning short films from Down Under will take place at the Asia Society at 725 Park Avenue, New York on May 10 at 6:30 pm

Legendary Australian filmmaker Jane Campion has agreed to AUSTRALIAN SHORT FILM TODAY showing a retrospective of her 1982 student film, An Exercise in Discipline - Peel,in which a boy annoyingly throws orange peels out of his father's car's window. Peel won the best short film prize at the Cannes Film Festival. Jane followed up this award when her feature film,The Piano, won the Palme d'Or at Cannes in 1993.

"Peel is joyously experimental, infused with the stubbornness of its characters" - Kate Matthews

The recently remastered version of Peel is courtesy of Australian Film Television and Radio School (AFTRS), where Jane made the film as a student.

This year's presentation of 9 films also includes, among other films, The Unicorn, a thriller in which a young couple is about to make love when a strange phone call sends their night into disarray; Hiccup, a 3-minute film in which a small annoyance may turn deadly, Kill Off, a comedy/drama in which a learning-challenged girl connects with an adult via music, Lost Property Office, a stop-motion animation in which Ed, the custodian, seems as lost as the items he is tasked to look after, Welcome Home Allen, a poignant film in which a group of Viking warriors returns home to a modern world, and Library of Love,a musical about alibrarian who spends her days reading too many romance novels.

There will be a reception after the films.
