An article published in 2004 titled “The Short Film and Critics: Do They Ever Meet?”, written by Laurence Boyce for FIPRESCI, reports the outcomes of a workshop on Short Film and Criticism held at the 50th Internationale Kurzfilmtage Oberhausen. Its reading is a useful insight to retrospectively understand what the relationship between film criticism and the short form of cinema looked like almost twenty years ago. In the meantime, however, much has changed: paper outlets have lost prominence while online publications have flourished.
Starting from a historical point of view, this hybrid panel talk aims to investigate the impact and influence film criticism has on the short film industry today and vice versa. Panelists are Laurence Boyce (Cineeuropa), Savina Petkova (Talking Shorts), Niels Putman (Kortfilm.be), moderated by Short Waves Festival’s Emilia Mazik.
