The short film section is one of the largest programmes of its kind in Europe, bringing numerous short film professionals to Rotterdam. Short films occupy a prominent position throughout the programme. They are everywhere but espesially as part of the compilations which are screened at the short film headquarters LantarenVenster. The combined programmes in the Deep Focus section are:
Films in ‘Deep Focus Short’
Font màgicaIzabella Pruska-Oldenhof IFFR 2016 6′
Magical spectacle created by subjecting footage of a light fountain in Barcelona to intensive photochemical and digital processing.
Tribute to Art #2Frank Scheffer IFFR 2016 14′
Homage to art approaches the undefinable phenomenon using a circular motion taking in images and sound. Compressed associations of a highly poetic nature. Screens before De Waarneming/The Perception.
Remembering the PentagonsAzadeh Navai IFFR 2016 23′
Sensual, lyrical depiction of the filmmaker’s earliest memories of the overwhelming smells and colours of Iran.
ChorusJosh Lewis IFFR 2016 17′
'Direct Film' was made by making two basic photochemical film processes conflict on the film emulsion’s surface. The result is absolutely hypnotising.
