LINZ INTERNATIONAL SHORT FILM FESTIVAL
11 – 14 OCTOBER 2018 at MOVIEMENTO LINZ & UNTEN
The first film festival in Upper Austria especially for short films on an international level shows in its first edition already more than 100 selected films in 4 categories from about 40 countries.
We have received almost 800 submissions from which 114 favourites were selected.
“With the International Short Film Festival we want to attract filmmakers and film lovers, to showcase global short film trends and provide an opportunity for exchange and networking at an international level. Award-winning films by established filmmakers as well as great works by potentially new talents were selected,” explains initiator Parisa Ghasemi, who is herself an active filmmaker and is currently attending the Time-Based Media course at the University of Art in Linz.
At the end of the festival, a top-class jury consisting of the multiple award-winning filmmaker & member of the oscar Academy awards, Farnoosh Samadi, this year’s Cannes winner Lucia Bulgheroni and the four-time winner of the German camera prize Sorin Dragoi will award prizes in the various categories.
