Shnit International Short film festival 2011
9ème édition

Français

After a deliciously off-the-wall Cape Town launch in 2010, shnit is back!

The 9th edition of the shnit International Shortfilmfestival takes place from the 5th to the 9th of October 2011 in Berne, Cologne, Cape Town and for the first time this year, Vienna. Every year, shnit serves an outstanding menu of short masterpieces. Only thrilling, entertaining and high-quality films find their way into the shnit program. Genre is trivial – the only criteria: that a film is simply « shnittingly shnitly »! In other words, mind-blowing.

Selected from 5000 entries from all corners of the globe, some 200-odd films will screen over the festival weekend…

The shnit-OPEN international competition presents jury awards in three international categories, plus national awards in each host country, and an international audience prize.

Out of competition, shnit proudly presents a number of curated film programmes (from animation to experiment, frightfest to peepshow, and more), and 2011 will see a bigger, bolder and more extensive Kaapse Bobotie programme, showcasing a full spectrum of Cape Town’s filmic output, including a focus on music videos. There truly is something for everyone in our comprehensive and cutting-edge programme.

But shnit would not be shnit without a world beyond the popcorn and the silver screen. The cinematic experience is a doorway into shnit EXPANDED, a playground in front of, beside and behind the screen, incorporating music, art, collaboration, discussion and expression. Daily shnit videologs shared among host cities and live-crossings between countries make it a global exchange of culture – not a collection of individual festivals but one festival in many cities.

shnit is expanding rapidly, adding new cities to the family each year. With prospects including South American, American and Australian cities, it’s on its way to becoming a truly global film celebration.


NATIONAL COMPETITION
For the first time in 2011, an awards category just for Mzansi, celebrating South African short film on a world-class level. Nine films will be evaluated by a jury at the top of their collective game in the local industry. One prize to be awarded… and the winner takes all!
