The Short Film Day 2015 in Sweden
The Swedish Film Institute organized the second edition of Short Film Day in Sweden (“Kortfilmsdagen”), doubling the number of participating venues from the previous year. In 2015 there were screenings in cinemas, libraries, art galleries, churches, shopping malls and schools in 23 cities all over the country.
There also were screenings at two places in the metro in Stockholm. Around half of the events took place in cinemas, and the other half in other venues. The biggest tv channel had a short film program on prime time. Between December 1st and 21st we invited one guest each day to select her or his favorite short film and these were published on our website. We also had really good media coverage, both in major national tv and radio, and in local press.
On Winter Solstice on 21 December, the sun will rise at 7:41 and set at 16:19. The day will only be 8 hours and 38 minutes long.
9 animated shorts – 56 minutes – children (and adults too!) from 6 years old
The Short Film Day is expanding and reaching new countries! We know of a number of projects around Europe (see our list here) but there are probably more we are not aware of : please let us know about the Short Film Day in your country and answer our survey by contacting the Short Circuit’s coordinator, Florence Dupont!
The shortest day of the year is a very special day for the short film. On December 21st, people in many different countries around the world celebrate the “short format”.
Short Film Night was very successful in Slovenia. The event took place for the second time this year.
For the SHORT FILM DAY 2015, the Italian Short Film Center (Centro Nazionale del Cortometraggio) has selected a programme with six Italian recent short films that will be screened in 22 Italian cities as well as 17 cities round the world thanks to the network of the Italian Cultural Institutes.
