Chanting for a free spot in nature / Martin Menso / 1 min
A short video about dealing with intangible nature and having a spot to a mirage of sun chair
Dépaysement / Arina Livadari / 11 min
When there is nothing to look forward to and no one to trust in real life anymore, man is given another chance to go on a journey of self-discovery before waking up again.
Rodina / Nadezhda Titova / 7 min
Rodina is a short documentary about the difficulty to separate family from politics when the former are ardent supporters of a toxic regime. In Russia, concepts like country, government, and family are often so closely entangled that it becomes hard to reconcile your love and your personal convictions.
Between Curtains / Daniel Kuiper / 4 min
You might be seduced by the appearance of Between Curtains, but do not let that happen. The aesthetic
experiment is about the creation of a veil around the individual in today’s society. A veil that is created and constructed by the individual itself.
The closed-off facades captured during a photographic research in Mariahoeve are a physical example of this phenomenon. Here closed curtains “protect” the inside of exsposure. Where the representation of the ‘self’ on social media could be seen as a metaphorical example, do these filtered images represent real life or fictional life?
Between Curtains, is the translation of this observation. Where in today’s society, we are seduced by the
aesthetics rather than to confront and dive deeper.
The movie uses the curtains as actors to show the observation of the veil from different perspectives in society.
Camera 1. / Jean-Baptise Castel / 5 min
Software cameras are the new heroes of cinema. They are superhuman, capable of traveling through space and time. They utilise multiple temporalities to move through filmic space in one seamless movement without using cuts. Detached from the physical world, the virtual camera has the ability to reproduce reality in vivid detail. This detail violates our senses of reality and perpetuates the illusion of the familiar. In an amalgamation of showreel video and a cinema movie, the protagonist, a software camera, explores a furnished rendered apartment, all the while discovering her superpower.
Pappouthe best man I know / Louisa Charitonidou / 3 min
He lives a righteous life. One which daily decisions are based on following the Bible and God's will. His lifestyle, mind-set, and actions all surround the idea of being a good person and doing the right thing. To me he is a role model and an inspiration for how to live my life.
The Other Side / Elena Kostenko / 7 min
This film is a reflection upon the state in which on one hand we are self-aware about our memories, on the other hand, our experience of the present time is preconditioned by the intensive flow of data. This film raises the questions: what is belong to us in terms of experiences and memories and what is given by the external world?
Point me to Utopia / Vladimir Vidanovski / 11 min
You are invited inside a distorted version of a childhood home, altered out of nostalgic impulse. A family living room, presented as a seemingly nonexistent point in space and time. Full of strange characters and events coming from a child’s colorful mind, you go along a bizarre obstacle course towards the gates of Utopia, a paradisiacal world with a questionable reality. Memories seem vital for progression, until their authenticity becomes uncertain. If your past is based on pixels, how can you prove that any of it is real?
Sniena (Dreaming) / Marysia Swietlicka en Szymon Hernik / 6 min
What happens when two siblings stumble upon a fish in a forest? The confrontation is an entry to the engagement in the two-way process of us adapting to nature and nature adapting to us.
Koffiehuisje / Nina Schollaardt / 3 min
In the early morning, before the sun rises, the coffee houses open their doors. Mostly, workingmen come by to drink their daily coffee. Coffee houses provided the city with a social meeting ground ever since they populated The Hague's streets, bridging the gap between the city's polarising inhabitants. Over fifty coffee houses existed at the end of the last century. Meanwhile, the number is halved. They have been slowly disappearing from the city's streets since the last decades.
During my visits to different kinds of coffee houses throughout The Hague, I noticed it is not so much about the coffee and food but the necessity to be in touch with people. They provide social contact and a daily structure for the customers. Coffee houses are not comparable to regular cafes where people go and meet familiar people, whereas coffee houses people speak and connect to one another. This video portrait gives an impression of the coffee houses atmospheres and cosiness.
Thrown Ashore / Anastasia Kiseleva / 8 min
Passage / Max van Olffen en Sarah Hoogman / 3 min
Burns Like Fire / Victoria Salomonson en Rima Baransi / 5 min
Rima Baransi was sexually harassed by an Israeli soldier on her way to school in Jerusalem. Crossing the border everyday.Victoria Salomonsen was sexually harassed in the age of 16 in her basement by a boy at her party.
Two very different situations, yet the same trauma and feelings around it.
Rima Baransi and Victoria Salomonsen are communicating these harassments and feelings around it in this short installation. Both of them found out that they used their medias the same way yet differently and decided to team up to show how you can communicate your traumas visually in a constant collaboration. They both found a way to speak it up and merge it together through performance, dance and film.
