Short Films un­der the Stars 2016 edi­tion

Malta Independent - - LIFESTYLE & CULTURE -

Film­mak­ers are of­ten asked the broad ques­tion: Why make a short film? as they don’t nec­es­sar­ily trans­late to fame and for­tune. How­ever, when it comes to short films, the game is chang­ing. Over the past six years, the num­ber of short film nar­ra­tives avail­able has ex­ploded and opened up new path­ways for ris­ing film­mak­ers. Short Films un­der the Stars cel­e­brates how short film cin­ema is now at the cen­tre of in­no­va­tive sto­ry­telling, with new di­rec­tors mak­ing their first mark in the film­maker’s play­ground with new ideas and new film­ing tech­niques. Thou­sands of shorts are cre­ated across the world every year, and as time passes there isn’t a bet­ter time to pro­duce a short film as its be­com­ing a fre­quently watched medium. Short Films un­der the Stars cham­pi­ons in­de­pen­dent pro­duc­tions from across the world. Great short films con­tinue to be made and th­ese films don’t nec­es­sar­ily get to cin­e­mas or TV. We be­lieve that this fes­ti­val is the ideal place for such pro­duc­tions and is an im­por­tant al­ter­na­tive dis­tri­bu­tion and ex­hi­bi­tion plat­form. This is the film event where the au­di­ence is given the op­por­tu­nity to vote for the best film.

This event is be­ing held at Villa Bologna (be­hind San An­ton Gar­dens) on Fri­day, 7 Oc­to­ber at 7.30 pm in col­lab­o­ra­tion with Palatino Camil­leri Wines, Villa Bologna and Euro Me­dia Fo­rum.

En­trance to the Short Film un­der the Stars event is €10 and in­cludes a glass of wine and pop­corn.
