The seminal Shorts
The 23rd Minimalen Short Film Festival proudly presents a cornucopia of new expressions from Wednesday 16th to Sunday 20th of March at Nova Cinema in Trondheim, Norway.
This year's programme offers Norwegian and Nordic films in three competitions, and a unique opportunity to assess the creative part of filmmaking — whether you would like to see what goes on in the World, Europe, the Nordic Countries, Norway or Trondheim. The pure, short fiction is always closest to our heart, and gets full attention in a symposium in cooperation with the editor of the journal Short Film Studies.
