NEW YORK, April 23, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
BOMBAY SAPPHIRE®, the world's number one premium gin by value, in association with Tribeca Film Festival®, today premiere the five short films from the Bombay Sapphire Imagination Series 2014 at http://www.youtube.com/BombaySapphire.
Fusing the words from a short script written by Academy Award® winner, Geoffrey Fletcher, this year's films showcase the imagination and talent of the next generation of aspiring filmmakers from across the globe.
With such eclectic interpretations on show, including a dramatic realisation set in space, a love story with a dark twist and a fantastical world surrounded by living street art, viewers are guaranteed to be taken on an exciting and thought-provoking journey as each filmmaker's contrasting and creative visions are brought to life on the big screen.
"Bombay Sapphire's support of this exciting and important initiative allows Tribeca and its filmmakers to be at the forefront of festival innovation and cutting edge storytelling. With this showcase of short filmmaking from the Bombay Sapphire Imagination Series, Bombay Sapphire and Tribeca are a unique creative partnership," said Geoffrey Gilmore, Chief Creative Officer of Tribeca Enterprise.
Having secured the accolade of the 2014 British Short Film BAFTA, for one of last year's films, Room 8, Bombay Sapphire is looking forward to the release of this year's films. "The Imagination Series celebrates creativity and is committed to the intrinsic beauty of film as an art form. Year on year we continue to support and offer a platform to creative and innovative ways of thinking and as another group of highly talented filmmakers work is realised we look forward to similar successes in 2014," said Heide Cohu, Global Marketing Excellence Director, Bombay Sapphire.
For the second year, Geoffrey Fletcher's short script - without any direction or description - has resulted in five films that transcend genres and demonstrate the power of imagination. Fletcher comments, "Nurturing and inspiring upcoming filmmakers is very dear to my heart and the Bombay Sapphire Imagination Series continues to provide a unique platform at a time when it's difficult for new voices and creative visions to be realised. With more than 1,300 entry submissions from 68 countries, the standard was extremely high and I urge everyone to watch and experience the films for themselves."

The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, a...

Fundamentally, SDN is still mostly about network plumbing. While plumbing may be useful to tinker with, what you can do with your plumbing is far more intriguing. A rigid interpretation of SDN confines it to Layers 2 and 3, and that's reasonable. But SDN opens opportunities for novel constructions in Layers 4 to 7 that solve real operational problems in data centers. "Data center," in fact, might become anachronistic - data is everywhere, constantly on the move, seemingly always overflowing. Net...

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happe...

What do a firewall and a fortress have in common? They are no longer strong enough to protect the valuables housed inside. Like the walls of an old fortress, the cracks in the firewall are allowing the bad guys to slip in - unannounced and unnoticed. By the time these thieves get in, the damage is already done and the network is already compromised. Intellectual property is easily slipped out the back door leaving no trace of forced entry. If we want to reign in on these cybercriminals, it's hig...
