Trivia:
Jonas Geirnaert (then 21 years old) was a student animation and hadn't even graduated, when he came upon a registration form for the Cannes Festival on their site, decided he had nothing to lose and sent in his "graduation-work". He had told nobody, thinking he wouldn't even be selected anyway. To his surprise, he won in the category "Best Short Film".See more »

A day in the life of..., 9 July 2004
Author: David Vanholsbeeck from Bruges, Belgium

This short by young fellow Belgian Jonas Geirnaert is already notable for the fact that the guy went to Cannes with his yet to be finished film, actually his graduation film (not yet judged by his teachers), won an important prize and had a remarkable speech afterwards saying "Don't vote Bush, in case Michael Moore shouldn't have the chance to say that this evening". This got him the recognition of a large part of the public, not in the least Moore himself. So, maybe we got a major filmmaker of the future on our hands here, ...with or without the help of MM. Now, is the short worth the fuzz? Pretty much so, yeah. It's a pretty darn funny and imaginative short, all the more remarkable by being the product of such a young filmmaker. I'm not sure what it's it trying to say, I guess you can interpret it in different ways, but I surely liked it and laughed several times. Catch it if you can. 8/10
