Filmmakers are often asked the broad question: why make a short film? As they don’t necessarily translate to fame and fortune. However, when it comes to short films, the game is changing. Over the past six years, the number of short film narratives available has exploded and opened up new pathways for rising filmmakers. In collaboration with the Concorto Film Festival in Piacenza, Italy, the CFF team has prepared a selection of some of their best shorts that will be screened on the night. Short Films Under The Stars celebrates how short film cinema is now at the centre of innovative storytelling, with new directors making their first mark in the filmmaker’s playground with new ideas and new filming techniques.
Thousands of shorts are created across the world every year, and as time passes there isn’t a better time to produce a short film as its becoming a frequently watched medium. Short Films Under The Stars champions independent productions from across the world. Great Short films continue to be made and these films don’t necessarily get to cinemas or to TV. We believe that this festival is the ideal place for such productions, and is an important alternative distribution and exhibition platform. This is the film event where the audience is given the opportunity to vote for the best film. Filmmakers are encouraged to submit their own short films for the 2016 edition of Short Films under the Stars.
Entrance is 10 euros and includes wine and canapés including free popcorn. For bookings please email email@example.com or text to 99454066. For the detailed short film programme visit https://www.facebook.com/Euro.Media.Forum
