At Cannes, short films are represented at the Competition, at the end of which the short films Jury awards a Palme d‚ÄôOr, and at the Short Film Corner, a professional area for meeting people, exchanging ideas and promoting films.

Docu-Surreal film inspired by The Noble Call from the Abbey Theatre Dublin of drag queen and rights campaigner Panti Bliss, honouring the centenary of The Great Lockout. The character is Pedestrian not Panti. His act of defiance is so mundane it should be unconsidered‚Ä¶ Yet we all consider him.
