»Rollenspiele« Short Films by ifs and KHM for the Day of the Short Film

21. 12 2021 um 19:00 - 23:00


On Dec. 21 – the shortest day of the year – short film has been celebrated throughout Germany in its diversity, creativity and joy of experimentation since 2012. Initiated by AG Kurzfilm, on this day cinema screens and TV programs, galleries and clubs, house facades and living rooms, public spaces and means of transport are conquered by short films.

The ifs internationale filmschule köln and the Academy of Media Arts Cologne (KHM), together with the KFFK/Short Film Festival Cologne, are participating in the nationwide Short Film Day with a short film program entitled »Rollenspiele« (»Role Playing«).

We all often play a role – in our everyday lives, in our professional lives, in our relationships. How much do society, our environment, our fellow human beings make us take on certain roles? This is not always a compulsion, because can’t the playing of roles, the trying out, the re-enactment of other people and characters have something liberating about it – when you can drop out of your own role for a moment? And can this role-playing also playfully bring us to new insights? The four short films in this program deal with these questions. Their protagonists are in search of the right role – for life, for partnership or for the next job.

On the screen:
»Jackfruit« (feature film, R: Thuy Trang Nguyen, 34 min., 2021, ifs).
»Mansa« (feature film, R: Mariana Bártolo, 20 min., 2021, KHM).
»Mona & Parviz« (feature film, R: Kevin Biele, 17 min., 2021, ifs)
»Vor der Leinwand« (feature film, R: Semih Korhan Güner, 25 min., 2021, KHM)

The filmmakers will be on site and will have their say between the films.
Moderation: Johannes Duncker (KFFK/Short Film Festival Cologne)
