The 34th Hamburg International Short Film Festival kicks off next week and three films from the WFG distribution catalogue have been invited to screen as part of this year’s festival!
All three films are competing as part of Hamburg’s Deframed competition, which the festival describes as:
“Different, controversial, dialectical
Deframed is different: New things emerge freely and associatively, traditional NoBudget films mingle with visual arts and media fads. The festival’s experimental competition admiringly and entertainingly analyses, updates and reconfigures.
Deframed is controversial: This is where extroverted queer customers present their firecrackers, private recordings greet treasures from the archives, memories lose themselves in a time lapse, patching meets camp binges and digital snippets salute the analogue film.
Deframed is dialectical: A discursive get-together and come-together of film makers, audience, curators and presenters in changing positions and with different perspectives.”
Hot Anger by local filmmaker Gwen Trutnau, Charlotte Clermont and Emilie Payeur’s collaborative Plant Dreaming Deep, and Solomon Nagler’s meditative days of doubt are three of 33 international short films competing for Deframed’s Jury and Audience Awards.
Winnipeg filmmaking talent will also be represented in Hamburg by Scott Fitzpatrick, whose film Trigger Warning is a Deframed selection as well!
Best of luck to Gwen, Charlotte, Sol, and Scott!!!
