Pe 30 octombrie, de la ora 18.00 SHORT FILM FACTORY te provoacă la film, în cadrul unui eveniment lunar care aduce filme de autor, cu intrare liberă, în 30 de locații alternative de proiecție din România.
SHORT FILM FACTORY provoacă românii la un nou tip de divertisment și, astfel, încearcă să conducă publicul cinematografic român către următorul nivel de culturalizare și integrare în social. De ce? Pentru că da, viața bate filmul și putem face asta.
Proiecțiile de scurtmetraj sunt organizate de Short to the Point (International Short Film Festival) – o reţea internatională de distribuţie, difuzare şi promovare a filmelor de scurtmetraj. În ultimii ani SHORT FILM FACTORY a reușit să creeze o punte de legătură intre filmmakeri, cinefili si spectatorii ocazionali, având ca scop construirea unui nou tip de comunitate urbană.
Lansat în anul 2009 sub forma unei caravane cinematografice în 28 de orase din Romania, STTP a devenit un festival lunar la care se inscriu filme din toate colturile lumii. Festivalul Short to the Point oferă lunar 13 categorii de premii celor mai bune scurt metraje inscrise, urmand ca acestea sa fie proiectate in cadrul evenimentului national Short Film Factory by Short to the Point.
