Minimalen presents, in cooperation with Midtnorsk Filmsenter, Richard Raskin and Intellect Journals:

Short Film Studies Symposium 2019

Do quality short films deserve close and comprehensive study? If you would answer that question with a resounding ’yes’, then the journal called Short Film Studies is likely to interest you. At this symposium, we will launch the eighteenth issue (#9.2) of the journal,
focusing on the two prize-winning short films singled out for close study in the issue (see next page).

This year, the symposium is hosted by Endre Eidsaa Larsen. The films will be screened in their entirety, and the filmmakers of both films have created a video explaining key aspects of their project. Furthermore, one of the journal article authors will present his text. There will be ample room for members of the audience to play an active role in the discussion. This will be a genuine vitamin injection for anyone who wants to understand what makes a short film tick, and a competence boost for filmmakers at all levels.

Short Film Studies journal

Short Film Studiesis a double-blind peer-reviewed journal from Intellect Journals, designed to stimulate ongoing research on individual short films as a basis for a better understanding of the art form as a whole. In each issue, two short films will be selected for comprehensive study, with articles illuminating each film from a variety of perspectives.

Please find a PDF with abstracts of the articles for each film below.

Richard Raskin (b. 1941) is the Founding editor of Short Film Studies,Unfortunately, he cannot come, but still works as an editor and facilitator of the symposium.

Endre Eidsaa Larsen (b. 1988) holds an MA in Film and Media Studies from NTNU, and is currently a Ph.D. student at Volda University College.
