“A LONG WEEK OF SHORT FILMS” program consists of a unique selection of 150 films from over 60 countries. The main screening program will be held in the Minsheng Art Museum of
Shanghai and special screenings, events and talks will be exhibited in five different venues across Shanghai.
This year we will introduce for the first time in China an entire section dedicated to Indigenous films from Ecuador. The “TINKUY” event will showcase these remarkable film and feature an appearance from the director and animator Segundo Fuerez, who will hold a workshop of animation for children.
We are delighted to present five different and fantastic showcases with films from:
Alcala de Enares Short Film Festival (Spain), Caminos do Cinema (Portugal), KOKI (Germany), Wajda Film School (Poland), INCINE (Ecuador)
We also consider important the opportunity to exchange experiences and knowledge. This year we will host guests from Germany, Portugal, Ecuador, Canada and from different provinces in China. They will be involved in the creation of workshops, master classes and talks for film students and the general public to learn more about different creative processes in filmmaking and the film culture in other countries.
As part of our parallel activities we have also invited artists of other disciplines like Segundo Muenala, a musician who has performed several times in China with his unique genre mixing of Chinese traditional music with elements of Andean Music. Qi Dance Project, a dance company based in Shanghai, Paris and Barcelona, will present improvisational pieces mixing different Chinese techniques of expressing and exercising the body and mind.
One of our bigger projects will start this year with a workshop on short-documentary filmmaking given by the filmmakers Miguel Schultz and Ana Herrlein (Germany). All the works produced in this collaboration between the Shanghai Film and Arts Academy and KanKan Media, will be selected to participate in next year’s editions of A LONG WEEK OF SHORT FILMS in South America, Europe and Canada.
We consider it important to create opportunities for creatives and artists and for that reason we have invited filmmakers, curators, producers and related professionals from China and abroad to share a dialogue and discuss the guidelines establish new links and future collaborations
