OBERHAUSEN 2018: VARIETY OF SHORTNESS

By Vladimir Seput

To spend six spring days in Germany sounds like a good idea, particularly when you are visiting one of the main international film festivals in the world dedicated to short films in Oberhausen, known in German as Kurzfilmtage. I arrived there for the first time this year, as a part of the Seminar that was organized for the fifth time as a laboratory for filmmakers, curators and critics. This year’s Seminar led by the always inspiring artist, writer and filmmaker Roee Rosen, gathered a diverse and stimulating group which shared and discussed problems, ideas and issues of contemporary visual arts and filmmaking.
