Montreal’s Short Film Fest Shows Off Fresh Talent
October 24, 2004 - By Vincent Langlois

"MONTREAL (djc Features) - The annual Glitch Fest [hyperlink:] in Montreal is made of such moments and the 2004 edition bears witness to unprecedented strength in those dreams, at a time when audiences are most receptive to the fresh, the new, the original. Indeed, the fifth edition of this multicultural festival of video shorts, the only one in the world with such a far-reaching agenda, crammed 99 films into three evenings... The programming, culled from the more than 500 entries received, offered a true window on the comradeship of filmmakers worldwide, on their universal desire to share their hopes and fears: 7:35 de la mañana by Nacho Vigalondo, an inspired take on desperate love and the dating game, struck its Montreal audience as powerfully as the The Straightjacket Lottery, a fast-paced look at what makes us tick and how our perception of sanity and madness too often depends on which side of the lens we are looking through."
