STUDENT FILM MONTH: Out of Sight (dir. Ya-Ting Yu, 2010)

Our twenty-sixth film of Student Film Month is ‘Out of Sight’ (dir. Ya-Ting Yu, 2010)

This beautifully animated short revolves around the story of a little girl and her pup who are confronted by a robbery that strays from the her off on an unfamiliar path. After entering foreign territory, she enters an unknown world and embarks on a magical adventure dependent entirely on her senses. Using soft pastel colours and working on this beautifully animated piece opens us up to the imaginary world of this little girl.

Animated and directed by the fabulous Ya-Ting Yu as part of a graduation production by three students from the National Taiwan University of Arts.

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.
