Minimalen Short Film Festival

Minimalen Short Film Festival

 

Type: Dedicated shortfilm festival
Location: Trondheim, Norway
Start Month: January


Description

Minimalen is an annual, independent short film event, covering new productions from Norway, Scandinavia and the rest of the world, as well as focus programmes and retrospectives.
Based in the attractive old town of Trondheim, Norway, Minimalen came to life in 1988. Trondheim is the main city in Trøndelag, the central part of Norway by latitude, and the country’s first capital back in the good old Viking days.
Over the years Minimalen has refined its main objective into finding new ways to use the film as a medium. This often means independent productions with a free spirit attitude to filmmaking and an emphasis on images and film language more than words. The ideal filmmaker should be on a constant quest to find the right form for each story. Not that they necessarily need to tell a story, but basically, each film should have its own fingerprint, a uniqueness which goes far beyond the constant re-telling of the same storyline as in the contemporary film industry. The small gems of up to 15 minutes, fiction or animation films told by experimental means. Not necessarily artistically ground breaking or technically perfect, but with a conformity of form and contents. These are the films that Minimalen are looking for, and this is what sets us a apart from many festivals.
