Film Round-Up 2023
Surveying this year’s selections, definite themes emerge. Not surprisingly, it boils down to humanity’s position relative to anything else. But more specifically, the most presented theme was of “ritual” followed closely by the theme of “the afterlife” followed by “a questioning of reality” followed thereafter by “spirituality” and “societal crises.”

Perhaps one could say that these themes are more the result of the psychology of the staff at
sf shorts. However, sf shorts tends to select films for the quality of their form and/or content, over the subject matter. Let quality be considered the best communication of the zeitgeist.
