97% (Short film)

Via an app on his phone, Bert discovers that a 97% love match is near. Will he find her before the subway reaches the end of the line?

Ben Brand’s second short film 97% is the last step towards his first feature film ‘FIND THIS DUMB LITTLE BITCH AND THROW HER INTO A RIVER’ which is planned to be shot spring 2016.

In the past two years 97% (the dutch submission for the oscars 2014) has been selected for more than 70 international film festivals including Aspen Shortfest, Sapporo International Short Film Festival and the Asiana International Short Film Festival, winning numerous awards on it’s way. After it’s online release it quickly became a Vimeo Staffpick and it was part of the BEST of Staff Picks: October 2015: https://vimeo.com/blog/post/best-of-staff-picks-october-2015
