Selector’s short statement
Despite the health crisis, this year’s entries were the wittiest so far. This selection shows that social uncertainty can be a stimulus for the directors of the shortest films. Authors with a sense of irony, capable to process the weight of existence with dramatic humor and to equate the situation of home isolation with the notion of critical distance, bring optimism when it comes to the future of short forms.
As a symbolic example of the career of Slavko Vorkapich, this avant-garde and at the same time classical Hollywood artist, we named the programs of the seventh edition of the festival The Magnificent Seven- Hollywood Heroes, as our humorous contribution to the overseas cinema and the roles of small and big films in it.
Mr. Vorky rides again.
