UnleashTheArtist.org was an idea created during quarantine as a platform for artists to showcase their work (during Covid-19), and for viewers to escape their surroundings and find inspirations to continue during an inconceivably difficult time.
We thought we would show our comradeship and do our best to entertain you as the ship went down… We dreamed of offering a little light in the emptiness and troubles of a confined world, for the first time in human history.
But as we artists say, ‘Life is stranger than fiction…’
And to our surprise - you - our viewers, gave us back something in return, you made us believe in the beauty of life, as we were trying to make you believe. We thank you!
And we would also like to thank the French Film Festival - Les Hérault du Cinéma et de la Télé, for offering us an exclusive as their partnership platform for the festival, within our second week. Our viewers were delighted to see, and vote, for the Top Short Film 2020.
Needless, to say all of us at UnleashTheArtist.org team and our contributors, are delighted that in the midst of a global fear and panic, something beautiful and profoundly empowering came from it.
For it shows not only the power of the arts, but most importantly the the hope that exists when we unite, no matter what the conditions.
In short, we at UnleashTheArtist thank you all for your support! And for allowing us artists to do what we do best - inspire others to forget their troubles, by placing our hearts, and our arts, out there for you!
Wishing you all happy viewing and many thanks,
The team BEHIND unleash the artist
