SHORT FILM COMPETITION ON HUNGER, FOOD AND TASTE
A special programme will compare film with food. Cooks and
filmmakers have a lot in common. Both work in media that,
ideally, provide people with enlightenment and pleasure;
both are involved in a continuous process of selection,
refinement and transformation.
To be part of the “Hunger, Food and Taste Special”, you must
submit a short film of up to five minutes in length.
We are looking for shorts dealing with the political,
economic or pleasurable aspects of food – whatever comes to
mind when you are hungry, eating or full after a good meal.
All genres are welcome: short features, documentaries or
animated films, tragedies or comedies. Your short films
should also comprise an introduction in which you present
yourself and mention your favourite food.
This section welcomes entries by alumni. Of course, new
applicants to the Talent Campus may also submit a short film
on the theme of food.
