“Exile shorts is a perfect opportunity for our films and students to be seen and known worldwide.”

Maria Marta Antin, Head of International Affairs & Communication, Universidad del Cine (ARG)

“Exile Shorts went down an absolute treat with RMIT students across a variety of levels and disciplines. Looking forward to finding new ways of bringing these shorts into the classroom, and sharing our own work with the world!”

“As a distributor it is very rewarding to work with programmers who see shorts not as an exercise but an artistic form on its own.”
