When you’re a kid, the idea of holing up in a hotel room to order room service and watch movies seems like a magical dream. Especially if you get to act like a grownup. In the case of this short film’s heroine, it’s a reality.
We partnered with The Ritz-Carlton, Marriott’s leading luxury brand, to find five aspiring filmmakers through a worldwide competition; the winners each created their own short films shot inside a different hotel suite.
The first follows a beautiful, reclusive hotel guest, and the second is a glimpse into what could happen if time offered you a loophole. The third, by director Alice Felgate, is a story of the love between a father and his daughter—and how sometimes, it’s the kid who needs to be the caretaker.
