Short Film Spotlight: The Future

The new 10-minute short The Future concerns a promising first date that could easily turn into a dream come true… or a nightmare.

Newcomer Chun-Wei Peng stars as a hopeless romantic who decides to venture out to the club and meet up with a guy he’s been chatting with on a dating app. When he meets the man, played by Elliot Cable, in person, there is an instant attraction.

The two young bachelors end up making out on the dance floor and share a cigarette on the way home. Soon, however, they’re approached on the street by a mysterious psychic played by Grace Carmen-Davis, who offers the new couple a free reading of their future. And that’s when things start to get really tricky.

Stylishly crafted by first-time director Andy I-Chang Wang, this trippy British short captures the infectious process of becoming smitten with someone you just don’t know all that well yet – and projecting a future together that, sadly, may not come to pass.
