While I myself will not be able to attend this year’s Berlin Film Festival, the reasons why I’m contemplating shelling out the likely quadruple digit bill it would be to take on a trip to Berlin continue to roll in.

Thanks to Pitchfork, we have the poster for Spike Jonze’s upcoming short film, the Arcade Fire-inspired SCENES FROM THE SUBURBS, has been released, and it looks absolutely fantastic.

The film will  show four times at this year’s Berlinale, and is based around Arcade Fire’s latest album, The Suburbs. It is set to follow “A group of suburban youths. Back then, in the summer, so long ago. They couldn’t leave town because outside the country was at war and the military controlled life and all gateways. The teenagers wander aimlessly about town. Winter is a long way off. And love and longing and friendship still mean—everything.”

We do not know when the short will be making its way to the rest of us unable to head out to Berlin this year, but with the talent involved here, don’t expect anything less than a relatively showy release. Side note, as if you needed another reason to get you excited, the film is shot by BRIGHT STAR and LET ME IN D.o.P., Greig Fraser, so at this point, this may be yet another fantastic piece of cinema created by one of the film world’s brightest names.
