Playback brings together over 150 short films made by young artist filmmakers in one exhibition, which tours the country until March 2018. These remarkable and award-winning short films made by emerging talent span a range of art forms and topics – from an animated take on the refugee crisis, to the dark dreamscape of a zombie apocalypse.

The exhibition is made up of individual touchscreens – choose what to watch from drama, comedy, dance, and spoken word to discover the filmmakers of tomorrow.
