See how filmmakers respond to what it means to be human when technology is changing everything in our series of shorts, documentaries and animations exploring Life Rewired themes. 

In collaboration with The Smalls, explore the issues at the heart of our year-long season, Life Rewired, in this series of short films, each presenting their own unique take on the role technology plays in our daily lives – including artificial intelligence, ageing, fertility and relationships – and what it might mean for our future.

In this special screening as part of The Smalls Film Festival, watch the series so far and join us for a Q&A with some of the filmmakers as they discuss the making of their short films and what they think the filmmaker of the future might look like.
