GUEST PROGRAM

kortfilm.be.png

In various situations, the four filmmakers from this program focus on their fellow human beings. They observe carefully, consciously frame things and thus question human behavior. Their films portray a diverse Brussels — sometimes intimate and voyeuristic, other times poetic or fictionalized. There is also a cautious political note throughout the humanism, which emphasizes the position of the filmmakers and camera.

 

Kortfilm.be is an online platform for Belgian short films, embedded in the international film landscape, with texts, viewing tips and a video on demand offer. Kortfilm.be wants to contribute to the development of an in-depth film culture in Belgium, with attention to film as an art form and short film as a full-fledged medium.
