Night Dancing, the 6-minute short film written, produced and directed by Barney Cokeliss, will receive its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival in September.
The film, which has a strong contemporary dance element follows Bob, a man transfixed by the vision of a woman dancing outside his window. The line between a leap (of faith) and a pas de deux grows increasingly fine as the dance beckons.
Barney’s short films have won multiple awards and played at festivals including Sundance, Venice, Palm Springs and Edinburgh. His most recent short, the 3D stereoscopic film ‘The Foundling’ won the Lumière Award.
