Minimalen presents, in cooperation with Midtnorsk Filmsenter


Short documentaries on digital platforms are on the rise, and their popularity is increasing. World-renowned news agencies are focusing on short documentaries from around the world with artistic and journalistic ambitions, and the films reach a large and growing audience. Minimalen is a partner in Midtnorsk Filmsenter´s new project focusing on the short documentary, and would like to present what we find to be some of the best short documentary films internationally from recent years.

BLACK LINE (Ligne Noire)

En kvinne som fisker i uklart vann, en natur under press, det fjerne utropet fra moskeen - alt sammen forbundet med en tynn, svart linje.

A woman fishing in turbid waters, a suffering nature, the broken chant of the muezzin - all linked by a thin, black line.

En by utenfor allfarvei i Texas. Et sted utenfor tiden. En ørken hvor rare lys danser på nattehimmelen. Et mekka for elskere av minimalistisk kunst. Et landskap med rømte hester, originaler og hurtigmatbiler. Og så er det den gigantiske sitronen.

A town on the borderlands of Texas. A place out of time. A desert where strange lights dance in the night sky. A mecca for lovers of minimalist art. A landscape of lost horses, freaks and food trucks. And then there’s the giant lemon.

Midtnorsk Filmsenter presents in cooperation with Minimalen


Midtnorsk Filmsenter is launching the project Short documentaries on international digital platforms, aimed at professional directors and producers in Trøndelag. The project will last for a year (to be repeated in 2020), where a selected group of filmmakers get the chance to develop their ideas under guidance of leading international experts. Minimalen is a partner in this project which is supported by Arts Council Norway, and as an introduction to the first project session we will screen a selection of short documentaries followed by a masterclass with Eloise King - an acclaimed filmmaker and former executive producer at VICE.

Eloise King is an award-winning filmmaker and most recently, she was Global Executive Producer at VICE, overseeing all digital channels in the UK, and i-D globally. Her body of work has a focus on telling powerful human stories that foreground marginalised voices, and previous titles include Kids Behind Bars (ITV), Acid Attacks (VICE) and the multi award-winning ‘Gurls Talk series. In 2015, King founded Women on Docs, a UK and LA based screening collective and event network celebrating the contribution of women to documentary film. In 2018 King was recognised for ‘Outstanding Achievement’ in Campaign magazine and Creative Equals list of female leaders defining creativity.
