MOSCOW, February 21, 6:21 /ITAR-TASS/. An international festival of extra short films will open in Moscow on Friday, February 21.
The first showings of no more than 60 seconds long will take place at the Multimedia Art Museum. “This format is still relevant: we see that the interest among producers, authors and people is quite strong. Our films always bring full houses,” festival organiser Dmitry Bulnygin told ITAR-TASS.
This year’s programme is traditionally divided into two sections: special and competitive. The latter features a wide range of participating countries from Europe and America to Australia, India and Hong Kong.
More than 70 works will be shown at the festival. “Our programme is a mosaic of themes, styles and ideas. It brings together gags and parables, political satire, impressionist etudes, apocalyptic visions, attempts at self-analysis, and reflections on the identity of related media - video and feature films,” the organisers said.
Although very short, each films has a meaning. “There are lots of ways to convey an idea during this time. These works have signs of feature films such as title, plot and logical ending,” Bulnygin said.
Russia will be represented by 14 authors. According to the rules, one participant can nominate no more than two films in the video and animation categories.
The extra short film festival will continue for three days until February 23.
