screenplay: Thomas Achitz
cinematography: Chris Julian Dittmar, Daniel Böck
editing: Florian Huber
sales: Hannes Stoll
language: German
colouration: colour

Hannes Stoll’s film examines the social stigma of homosexuality. The threat of ostracism prevents a football player from coming to terms with his own sexuality and attraction towards the same sex. Hannes Stoll portrays society as an intolerant entity that embraces only those who prove their ‘purity’ by conforming to the standards of the majority.

2010 Spalony / Abseits / Offside (short)

France 2010 / 8’
director: Serge Ramelli
screenplay: Serge Ramelli
cinematography: Serge Ramelli
editing: Serge Ramelli
sales: Alandra Films
language: French
colouration: colour

Serge Ramelli’s Arthur has little in common Steve Gordon’s better-known Arthur, in which Dudley Moore drowned his sorrows, but also celebrated his joys, with copious amounts of alcohol. Arthur in this short movie is a picture of health. Any excuse, even being late, is enough for him to run, bounce off walls or jump over any obstacles in his way. The aim of the film was thus straightforward – to show off stunts – but we watch enthralled nonetheless.

Serge Ramelli

Serge was born in 1970 after working in the web advertisement business, he became a photographer in 2005. He was specialize in digital work, HDR photos and retouching. He did a photo series called Paris Cinema, the idea was to represent Paris, retouched in the same way then Hollywood movies. In 2007 serge started directing institutional ads for various companies. In 2010 he directed his first shot Arthur, an action movie with the only idea in mind to be a fun entertaining experience. He is now developing with the production company named Alandra Films a movie a comedy called 40.

69, the Story of Illy Lips
Netherlands 2010 / 20’
director: Miek Hoekzema
screenplay: Miek Hoekzema
editing: Magda Augusteijn
sales: Miek Hoekzema
language: English
colouration: colour

This is an experimental short film in three chapters focusing on death, sex and life. The form is independent of content and relies on an amalgamation of interlaced images. Combined with the narrator’s hypnotizing voice (provided by the director herself), the flow of images mystifies our senses as we contemplate the screen.

Got her master degree in fine arts at the Sandberg Institute in Amsterdam in 2004.
