Local Artists Shorts @ OÖ Kulturquartier in cooperation with OÖ Landes-Kultur GmbH
8 to 10 October | Ursulinensaal in the Upper Austrian Culture Quarter
Every year the Local Artists program offers an overview on current film production in Upper Austria. This is why Crossing Europe will stop off at the Upper Austrian Cultural Quarter for three days in October with its alternative program EXTRACTS, in order to provide a forum for local filmmakers. Once more the Local Artists will impress audiences with experimental films, cool music videos, creative animations, documentary gems, as well as new forms of storytelling within fiction. The program encompasses 51 short films, and puts the spotlight on both established artists, as well as new voices. The Crossing Europe audience can look forward to three inspiring days complete with premiere feeling, extensive film discussions, and an award ceremony.
During the award ceremony on 10 October (8:30 pm | admission free!) two festival prizes will be awarded: CROSSING EUROPE Innovative Award – Local Artist (3.500 €,- powered by OÖ Landes-Kultur GmbH) and the CREATIVE REGION MUSIC VIDEO Award (1.500 €,- powered by CREATIVE REGION linz & Upper Austria).
The members of the Jury Local Artist, who will also be attending the screenings in Linz are: Anna Ladinig (festival director IFFI – Int. Film Festival Innsbruck), Anna Prischl (Co-director of the Int. Youth Media Festival YOUKI, Wels), and Siniša Vidović (producer and director).
