The short film is often underestimated and undermined regarding its significance in film history, as well as the author’s development. It is often only seen as the director’s transition phase towards a full-length film. The idea of the panel is to introduce the participants to the diversity and fluidity that the short form can offer, and point out some of the advantages that go along with it. During the discussions, the participants of the panel will reflect on the numerous and diverse structures and materials of short documentaries, which includes a spectrum ranging from the most classic narratives to the most experimental works.
