A scene from Brigitte Jarvis’s film The Endless Hourglass, which will be screened later this month as part of Frankston City’s This Time, Last Year.

Frankston City’s artistic talents will be on show at a screening of captivating, poignant and thought-provoking short films this month. The series of films created for the 2020 Lockdown Short Film Competition provide a snapshot of life as we entered or emerged from last year’s COVID-19 lockdown.

Among them is The Endless Hourglass, by Brigitte Jarvis. “This film was inspired by poetry written by Lyn, a single 70-year-old woman who continues to remain healthy and positive and write wonderful visceral poetry about her experience of daily life,” Brigitte said. “She travels a great deal and her poetry is often like a journal of her adventures, so this poem about isolation is particularly poignant.”

James Griffiths, 21, took the competition’s top prize of $2000 with Routine, which follows the cyclical nature of the lockdown and how that can weigh on someone mentally. Sixteen-year-old Imogen Adeney won $1000 for her highly-commended entry GLITCH, which explores the effects lockdown has on a 16-year-old girl and how mental health issues can interfere with your mind.

The screening of qualifying films from the competition is part of This Time, Last Year – a multidisciplinary art exhibition, time capsule, celebration and memorial all rolled into one – and is at Frankston Arts Centre’s Cube 37 on Friday, May 21, at 6pm. The event is free but bookings are essential. Go online for details or phone 9784 1060.
