The version of Metropolis shown will be the 1984 Moroder cut.
About the Inspired Short Film Awards:
This year Metropolis entered the public domain, making footage available for artists and filmmakers everywhere to express themselves with the film as source material as a jumping off point. Friends made an open call on FilmFreeway for artists to create and submit short films inspired by and using elements from Metropolis, to be screened at this event. There will be an audience award given to the top film choice on the night of the event.
