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."
