Transfer is a 1966 short film written, shot, edited and directed by David Cronenberg. It features Mort Ritts and Rafe Macpherson and has a runtime of 7 minutes.

In Cronenberg on Cronenberg, edited by Chris Rodley (ISBN 0-571-19137-1), Cronenberg summarized Transfer as follows:

Transfer, my first film, was a surreal sketch for two people - a psychiatrist and his patient - at a table set for dinner in the middle of a field covered in snow. The psychiatrist has been followed by his obsessive former patient. The only relationship the patient has had which has meant anything to him has been with the psychiatrist. The patient complains that he has invented things to amuse and occasionally worry the psychiatrist but that he has remained unappreciative of his efforts.

Home video[edit]

The short was included along with Cronenberg's other early films on a bonus disc in Arrow Video's 2015 UK Blu-ray release of Videodrome.[1] This bonus disc, entitled David Cronenberg's Early Works was later released on its own a year later.[2]
