ONEDREAMRUSH
42 X 42 SHORT FILM FESTIVAL

ONEDREAMRUSH assembled 42 of the most influential and progressive filmmakers from around the world to direct 42-second short films, offering a visually provocative response to the perennial human question: “What is a dream?” In each short the audience is drawn into the filmmaker’s individual investigation of dreams and interior reflections. As a composite whole, each distinct piece dissolves into a serendipitous interweaving of recurring motifs.
 

Originally commissioned by 42 Below Vodka (Bacardi), in cooperation with the Beijing Film Studios, the finished works were exhibited in Beijing’s CHINA NATIONAL FILM MUSEUM in April 2009. A month later, the project received a special invitation to screen at the 62nd CANNES FILM FESTIVAL and later in the year was shown at the ROTTERDAMROME and NEW YORK FILM FESTIVALS. In addition to curating the selection of filmmakers, Griffin directed his own film TIEMPO and produced several of the films for the festival. Spanning over a wide generational spectrum, from internationally acclaimed veteran filmmakers and artists to young luminary talents, the innovative and thought-provoking ONEDREAMRUSH is a reference point for globally relevant curatorial and sponsored-content projects.
