"Have you heard of the Transparency Plus Program"
After the final infuriating straw, Dan calls his internet provider to cancel the f---ing internet. Surviving the apathetic gauntlet of support staff, he finally reaches the retention department and their star agent: Gerald. Things are finally looking up for Dan. That is until Gerald makes it very clear just how much he knows about Dan’s browsing history, and how far he’s willing to go to maintain his perfect retention record.
"This year, many of the shorts achieved their humour through a particular strategy: depicting everyday situations, but with a twist of the extreme.
My favourite short film at the festival and the one that best exemplifies this idea is Cancel the Fucking Internet from director Ryan Kayet."
