In the year 2025, a young man’s super-intelligent AI system tells him that he must go on a date or face certain suicide from loneliness. (synopsis via Vimeo)

Going online has really made a huge change to the way we find the love of our life. (Exhibit A is this essay by Azia Ansari.)

Gone are the days of marrying within your neighbourhood or town; now an entire city, country or the entire world is our romantic oyster, transforming how we find love.

The delightfully-insightful short film, A Date in 2025 by Ryan Turner, upends things even further, and yet stays resolutely true to what we all want from dating apps which is to find that very special someone.

True, that quest is now AI-augmented and a teensy-tiny biy creepy but mostly it’s heartwarmingly wonderful as two lonely people find that technology may not be anti-love and belonging after all.
