New Designers presents a curated collection of ten shorts by this year’s graduating designers experimenting across moving image, animation, film and gaming. Themes in focus for this year include dystopian futurism, mental health, local community, and identity. Amongst these, Dwayne Bell's film Irving - a 6 part animated illustration documentary - tells the story of the filmmaker's uncle. Across a backdrop of mundane realities and tinged with nostalgia, the film traces the creeping realisations of depression, anxiety and addiction.
