Frenzy Short-Film Festival is an initiative focusing on the social and psychological vulnerabilities of individuals and communities at large. All Shorts must revolve around some “Frenzy” episode (a phase in which excitement seems to lead us to unconsciousness, and that can become negative when control is lost, or behavior transgresses what society considers “normal”).
