TIFF says
Series curator and CEO of Film London Adrian Wootton provides an overview of the history and rich legacy of William Shakespeare on screen in this extended lecture, followed by a programme of new short films commissioned by Film London that engage with Shakespeare's works in fresh and original ways.

Shakespeare Shorts include:

NECK AND NECK
Shaun Clark uses digitally manipulated hand-drawn imagery to focus on the deteriorating relationship between Othello and Desdemona.

LOVE IN IDLENESS
Kim Noce employs complex layered imagery to illustrate the moment when Bottom's head metamorphoses into that of a donkey.

THE WAKING DREAM
Farouq Suleiman and Ben Sayer use cut-out animation techniques to reimagine Lady Macbeth's washing of her bloody hands.

OPHELIA 2.0
Sharon Liu uses a distinctive, painterly style to illustrate the famous image of Ophelia in the river.

LET ME NOT BE MAD
The storm scene in King Lear is reimagined in hand-drawn charcoal animation and pin-hole photography of the moors.

MARINA AND ADRIENNE
Fugitive lovers pose as fishermen and find work on a trawler, in this short inspired by Pericles, Prince of Tyre.

WYRDOES
A comic riff on Macbeth, WYRDOES focuses on sisters Elsab, Magrit and Merope, who are rumoured to be witches just because they're a little "wyrd."
