Lars Henrik Gass, Maike Mia Hoehne, Peter van Hoof, Jukka-Pekka Laakso, Laurence Reymond

This issue of OnCurating is based on a panel at the Short Film Festival Winterthur and was presented at the Short Film Festival in Oberhausen 2014.

See This edition of OnCurating is based on the panel “The Future of Short Film“, which was held at the Internationale Kurzfilmtage Winterthur. The former artistic director Reto Bühler invited Lars Henrik Gass (Internationale Kurzfilmtage Oberhausen), Maike Mia Höhne (Berlinale Shorts), Peter van Hoof (International Film Festival Rotterdam), Jukka-Pekka Laakso (Tampere Film Festival) and Laurence Reymond (Quinzaine des Réalisatuers Cannes) to present a short film not longer than 10 minutes and to talk about the future of short films from an artistic point of view and not from a technical one, knowing that this often cannot be separated.

The guests were asked to describe a utopian vision of what they think the future could look like, and not to deliver a prognosis which had to be based on facts and would be 100% accurate. Catherine Colas, who is responsible for fiction and shorts at ARTE Germany, hosted the panel.
