| SHORT FILM CONVENTION 2019: Short, no compromise
This is the fourth convention for the professional short film industry.
A place to share knowledge, build networks, address topical issues and
questions and get professional input. This year we have focused on the
power of short film, as an avid activist with ground-breaking visual possibilities.
Creators of short film from all over the country are gathered for conversation,
in-depth study and advancement, as well as inspiring social get-togethers where
participants will get to know each other and each other’s work. The target group
is directors, script writers and producers who actively work with short film.
The convention aims to provide a selection of the best storytellers from all over
the country the opportunity to immerse themselves in professional
discussions about short film as a format, and the opportunities and challenges
short films are faced with today. Short film is not made within as focused a
field as documentary or feature film, but the storytelling voices that are developed
and refined within the format are important to the entire industry.
The short film convention is a cooperation between the regional film centres in
Norway, the Norwegian Film Institute and Minimalen Short Film Festival. Local
organizer in Trondheim is Midtnorsk filmsenter (The Mid-Norwegian Film Centre).
