Happily Ever After (dir. Yonni Aroussi & Ben Genislaw, 2013)

Number 25 in our Student Film Month is ‘Happily Ever After’ (dir. Yonni Aroussi & Ben Genislaw, 2013)

This beautiful animation takes us on the conveyor belt of life as we rush through the degenerative life of a couple as they embark on a new stage in their relationship through the purchase of their first home. This quirkily animated short touches on the subjects of both life and death, with all the bits in between.

Animated by the israeli duo Yonni Aroussia & Ben Genislaw based on a story by Omri Givon during their time at Bezalel Academy of Art and Design.

Student Film Month
In celebration of student filmmakers everywhere and our Student Film In Transit competition, we’ve launched Student Film Month at Cannes in a Van. Every day throughout February, we’re publishing a student film from somewhere in the student film-sphere. It might be a student classic like the 1965 long-short Boy and Bicycle from a young Ridley Scott… an award-winning masterpiece… or a film directed by you.

We’ll be publishing a wealth of moving images from the infamous to the obscure, each film worthy of it’s place on our humble little stage. So what’s stopping you picking up that mouse, tablet or phone and sending us your own student short? You never know where the big yellow van might take you!

We’re even hosting a special Student Film Screen Social very soon in London so look out for more on that by joining our mailing list.

It’s simple to submit…
Email us at and tell us what you’d like to show, then fill in the Screen Social submission form (please include details of production) and we’ll do the rest!

We look forward to screening your film.
