Food and Short Films

Yesterday evening was spent with four friends having a meal at our local cocktail bar and then moving on to a screening of highlights from the Ann Arbor 50th Film Festival. The meal was delicious as it always is. I had a Sirloin Steak Sandwich Bloomer, with mushrooms, caramelised onions and seasoned chips, with multiple Fruit Salad Cocktails (Melon, Raspberry and Strawberry!) and a mint ice cream and brownie plant pot for dessert.

The seven films lasted only an hour and fifteen minutes, and were a mix of animated and live action shorts crossing genres. Some weren't particularly to my taste which was disappointing as I'm a huge fan of short films and have seen some truly great ones, but they were all interesting to watch. My favourite was the last, a 13 minute long animation called Birdboy, which was funny, sad and beautifully animated, and can be seen here.

Overall it was a fun way to spend a Wednesday evening watching short films and enjoying some great grub!
