This evening our spectators and creators from all over the world will be united in common love to “short-length films” of various genres. In 21st century short-length films became actually highly sought-after genre, infatu’ting spectator with its metaphoricalness and shortness of statetement, resembling genre of literature novelette. The organizers of Future Shorts have already collected the best short-lenght films for us from the largest international festivals. This time 1,5 hour program is offered.
Actual event is an alternative to the traditional model of film festivals. The aim of Future Shorts is creation of live, spectators uniting atmosphere. “It is no coincidence that for film watching of young talents we choose alternative grounds with limited number of places, because the atmosphere is also important in film watching, furthermore, it is the inherent integral part of the festival. It is also important, where and WITH WHOM you are watching film- as much important as WHAT are you watching” – is underlining Olga Melnikova, organiser of the film festival in Latvia and the founder of creative communication agency “CREA Promotion”.
