Panel. Be Short Now! Festivals of the Present, Festivals of the Future
Moderated by: Emilia Mazik (Festival Director, Short Waves Festival)
In collaboration with: Talking Shorts – BE SHORT NOW!
Guests: Eroll Bilibani (Head of DokuLab, Dokufest), Lars Henrik Gass (Festival Director, Internationale Kurzfilmtage Oberhausen), Nina Rodrigues Lima (Director of Programming, Guanajuato International Film Festival)
This panel aims to answer questions on the organizational issues, changes and challenges that the short film festival ecosystem is about to face in a post-pandemic world. Although uncertainty for the upcoming 2021 season is still very much present and real, how will organizers prepare for it? How will past experiences and recently learnt expertise help shape the future short film festivals? What form will “real-life” events take?
