Encounters Film Festival
In October 2014, Bristol’s Encounters Short Film and Animation Festival discussed great short films from around the world, and showed a particular fondness for The Kármán Line:
Over its twenty years, Encounters has played a significant role in showcasing emerging talent to the film and TV industry, and this year was no different. A standout for me was Oscar Sharp’s The Kármán Line, starring Olivia Colman as a chirpy mum with a teenage daughter, who has to cope with a sudden life altering condition and witness her family come to terms with difficult changes. Director Sharp and screenwriter Dawn King assuredly develop their story from a uniquely original and amusing idea into something acutely sensitive and, at times, genuinely moving.
