Figgis will also be cutting together Vine versions of his films to screen at the event, including "Internal Affairs," "Hotel," and "Liebestraum." His new film, "Suspension of Disbelief," will also be screened as a Vine video before making its UK premiere later in the festival.
"['Suspension of Disbelief'] is my first feature film to be shot in the UK in almost a decade and is a true indie production with a 21-day shooting schedule, shot with a Canon on a minuscule budget...I've been working within the digital domain for some time now, so I'm really pleased to be presenting EEFF's new digital strand, EMERGE," Figgis said. "I look forward to viewing entries to the Vine video competition."
If Figgis cuts all his directorial efforts down to the six-second Vine standard, the total screening time of the 32 videos would be three minutes and 12 seconds. The director did not commit to a six second cut of "Leaving Las Vegas," though one would imagine it to be a shorter version of this.
