  • Albert's collaboration with his son, The Butler and the Ball, has been selected for the official competition at the 2021 International Festival of Short Film: The Unprecendented Cinema, an annual competitive film festival held in Tallinn, Estonia, since 2001. The Butler and the Ball, or Ülemteener ja ball in Estonian, competes in the Best Amateur Film category. The festival takes place September 3-5, 2021, at the Russian Cultural Centre in Tallinn, a venue for various events, theatre performances, and music shows, housed in a neo-classical building that was formerly a residence for naval officers.

    The Butler and the Ball, an urban fairy tale about a lonely boy who enters a contest to become the new butler of a grieving, reclusive singer, was directed by eight-year-old Andrew Chan-Possemato, who wrote and produced it with Albert.
