"The Palace That I Live In" at 2014 Palm Springs International Shortfest.

Last year at the end of February, Aimée-Lee Curran (director), Mark Sims (producer) and Lâle Teoman (writer/actress) set out to make a short film entitled "The Palace That I Live In".

They raised the funds for the film via the crowd funding platform Pozible and short on a rural property in Bathurst, Australia over four days, with three actors, nine crew, six dogs and a mouse. The film will held its world premiere today June 21st as a part of the Dreamscapes program.

Palm Springs International ShortFest is the largest short film festival in North America and Academy Award accredited. Out of 3000 films only 330 were selected.

The three filmmakers will be at the festival for the 2nd year running, after a film they entered last year- Jump - written and directed by Aimée-Lee, produced by Mark Sims and costume designed by Lâle, won best Student Live Short Under 15 Mins.

"We are all in our late 20s, incredibly motivated and are doing everything we can to push ourselves and make films we can be proud of", says producer Mark Sims, "In 2014, director Aimêe-Lee Curran was mentored by Kim Farrant and worked as the director's assistant on the feature film Strangerland, starring Nicole Kidman, Joseph Fiennes and Hugo Weaving."
