Some great short filmmakers will be strutting their stuff at the 3rd annual Razorblades In Your Reese's short film fest, a free event taking place at LA's Downtown Independent on Halloween (Wednesday October 31). One name to watch on this year's slate is Swedish director Adam Berg, creator of the Philips Carousel commercial. Berg is set to make his directorial debut with Universal's upcoming remake of Cronenberg's Videodrome.
Both The Ruins director Carter Smith and John E. Bryant, best known for his SXSW feature The Overbrook Brothers, will have shorts in this year's lineup as well.
Razorblades has become a good place to spot young talent. Past fest's have included works by Jason Eisener (Hobo With A Shotgun), Rodney Ascher (Room 237), and Spencer Susser (Hesher). Some potential up-and-commers with new work this year include Ryan Spindell, Jon D.A., and Jason Willis. Aussie filmmaker Andrew Kavanagh's Gijon-winning short At The Formal will also play. We've included the trailer for that short below.
There is one more fantastic short film that will be playing Razorblades this year that you can watch right now to whet your appetite. It's the bloody 3D animation Hambuster. We brought it to your attention a while back, but if you missed it, you should definitely queue it up below.
Catch Hambuster and much more on the big screen next Wednesday at the Downtown Independent. More info available here.
