INDUSTRY PANEL: THE VALUE OF WATCHING SHORTS
With Jeffrey Bowers, Kirsten Ruber, Lotte Kircher and Samir Karahoda
Monday, May 23rd, 4pm @ Palais Stage & Marchédufilm.online

Short film directors make shorts, but do they watch shorts? Programmers, curators of all kind and filmmakers gather to discuss about how important watching shorts is when it is about making cinema. The opportunity to know more about what is programmed in festivals and the existing platforms & initiatives putting shorts in the spotlight.

  

                       

INDUSTRY PANEL: NOT SELECTED IN MAJOR FESTIVALS, WHAT'S NEXT?
With Jason Anderson, Anne Gaschütz, Jean-Christophe J. Lamontagne
Tuesday, May 24th, 3pm @ Palais Stage & Marchédufilm.online

Most filmmakers sometimes make the assumption that, if their film was rejected, it was a direct result of it not being strong enough. This panel is the opportunity to cheer up and see what can be the life of a short outside from the festival circuit.
