2014: Short Film Corner - Cannes Film Festival (FR)
This September, the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York will screen three short films from Flanders: Tom Van Avermaet’sDeath of a Shadow; Tunnelrat, directed by Raf Reyntjens; and Peace, directed by Roman Klochkov. The films are part of ‘The Great War: A Cinematic Legacy’, a film exposition in commemoration of WWI curated by Charles Silver and Dave Kehr.
‘The Great War: A Cinematic Legacy’ opened on 4 August, the 100th anniversary of the day World War I began, and runs till 21 September, highlighting some 60 feature films and thematic programmes aimed at providing a comprehensive view of the war as portrayed in film. The programme has just one short film section, with three out of the four entries coming from Flanders.
The Montreal World Film Festival has picked up The Treatment by Hans Herbots for its 38th edition, taking place from August 21-September 1. Herbots’s psychological thriller will have its international premiere in the festival’s Focus on World Cinema section. In addition, Sahim Omar Kalifa will present his latest short film Bad Hunter in Official Competition. Kevin Meul’s short Cadet and the animation project 12 Minutes About Peace, a collection of 12 one-minute shorts commemorating WWI, are also set to screen in Montreal.
The Treatment stars Geert Van Rampelberg as police inspector Nick Cafmeyer, a man who seems to have it all. Yet a dark shadow hangs over his life: since the age of nine, he has been haunted by the disappearance of his younger brother.
