Short Films from Around the World

The Clermont Ferrand film festival is one of the world's leading events dedicated to short films. Every year the festival and the short film market bring together many industry representatives from around the world. The 40th edition of the festival will run from February 2 to February 10, 2018.

Proch (Dust), Jerry, and Drżenia (Tremors) at Clermont-Ferrand

Three Polish shorts will screen in the festival's international competitions. Proch (Dust) by Jakub Radej (Radio & Television Department of the University of Silesia in Katowice) will be shown in the Lab Competition. This documentary, awarded previously in Jihlava, is a study of the journey the human body goes through from the moment of death to the funeral. In Radej's film, the stages of this journey (mortuary, morgue, cemetery) are juxtaposed with the bureaucracy around the belongings of the deceased. A calculated account of the fate of these material objects that the deceased person has left behind is presented in an open form that might also include a question about the meaning of life and reflections on the loneliness of people who have no one to bid them farewell on this final journey.

Another Polish film at the festival will be Jerry, directed by Roman Przylipiak (Munk Studio, HAKA Films). This short narrative will screen in Clermont-Ferrand's International Competition. Jerry is the story of an ostracised con artist who has an unusual gift. He's a controversial character; while some say he has helped them, others claim he is extremely dangerous. Jerry himself, tired of his old life, suddenly receives an unusual power that comes to him in the form of a dog.

The third Polish film screening in competition at Clermont-Ferrand is Drżenia (Tremors), an experimental film by Dawid Bodzak. "Imagine you are in a forest. It is dark and quiet; you do not know why you are there. You want to get out of there when you suddenly hear a howl. Something is running towards you and searching for something, while you sit still. You don't move because you don't want it to notice you. Suddenly, a wolf appears next to you in the darkness. Then another one. And another one. They surround you. What do you do?," reads the synopsis at Polish Shorts.

Like every year, Polish films will also be showcased at the festival's Film Market. The Polish Shorts stand, hosted by the Krakow Film Foundation, will be one of a number of national stands presenting short films from around the world.
