INDUSTRY PANEL: SHORT FILMS: PRESS & MEDIA COVERAGE
With Marina D. Richter, Céline Roustan, Niels Putman
Tuesday, July 13th | 5pm @Palais Stage & Marchédufilm/online
For a very long time short films were barely written about in the academic field, let alone standard press and media outlets. With many fresh initiatives on the horizon, and old ones gaining new audiences, this panel aims to map out the current state of press coverage and general media visibility for short films (especially post-Covid19 with more and easier digital access to (short) films at large). Can filmmakers take advantage of these different online platforms? Do said initiatives actively spark interest of the cinematic art form that is short film — or are they preaching into a void?
