What is "Connected" and where can I see it.

Browsing through one of my regular poster sites, OMGposters.com, I came across a post pimping a limited edition poster for a Danish Sci-Fi short film Connected. The poster art was awesome and got me intrigued in the film. A short while later I was at the official site and looking at a rather impressive looking teaser for it.

"Set in the distant future, Connected is a story about survival and greed with a post apocalyptic wasteland as its backdrop. Survivors of an unknown disaster shuffle through a desolate landscape, as it quickly becomes clear that not everybody has the strength to survive." 

Apparently this was made by a group of friends, spearheaded by the directors Jens Raunkj√¶r Christensen and Jonas Drotner Mouritsen who also wrote it. The thing looks damn impressive for a film shot on a shoe string budget and finished I'm guessing with allot of favors and time on their hands. It was premiered in Copenhagen on September 4th and will start touring the festival routes this year. Anyone out there in Denmark seen this? I wanna.

Check out the teaser below and then head for the website for more behind the scenes stuff along with stills and news and such. If you like the poster (click on it in the gallery to embiggen it) then follow the link below.

Holy smoke, Swarez. I just saw this today and e-mailed Jonas and Jens about running a story. Well you beat me to it. Glad it is out there as it looks all sorts of good.

Ben. If you have something more substantial in mind then by all means go ahead and do it. I want to learn more about it.

This post is a great example of how picking a book by its cover (or movie by its poster) can be a good thing! Any idea why they wouldn't just throw this up on the internet? I imagine there is probably an exclusivity agreement when you submit to a film festival, but isn't that exactly what the net is for...exposure? Do film makers get paid for showing at festivals?
