Focus: Experiment is a competition for filmmakers who are looking for new forms of storytelling, contradicted logic, break patterns and change composition rules. As a result of their experiments, unique productions arise that help us look at our world from a whole new perspective.


Back in 5 minutes, dir. Felipe Garrido Archanco (Spain) 2021, 5+, 15+
A short film structured as a false advertising block: 11 fictional spots that reflect on the advertising language through the advertising language itself. Polish premiere.


Inside, dir. Yann Chapotel (France) 2021, 6’, 13+
Inside unrolls a mosaic of windows, those of the building that the director regularly filmed from his own window. Along this border where the interior opens onto the exterior, a multitude of moments of everyday life overlap and respond to each other, forming a choreographic fresco of simple gestures. Film awarded at e.g. Vienna Shorts. Polish premiere.


The Sweet Hassle of a First Time, dir. Eva Zanen (Netherlands) 2021, 14’, 18+
Across multiple splitscreens, five couples have sex with each other for the first time, with all the accompanying awkwardness that seldom makes it onto the silver screen. An experimental, tragi-comic sex film without boobies or butts. Polish premiere.


The Construction of a Sound, dir. Cristóbal Arteaga Rozas (Spain) 2021, 18’, 15+
A couple prepares a meal for their guests. They realize that one ingredient is missing. He stays in the kitchen, she goes to the store… Polish premiere.


A Quiet Man, dir. Nyima Cartier (France) 2021, 14’, 13+
Pierre is staring out the window of an office building in the business district La Défense. Down below, a colleague who was dismissed that morning has been sitting on a bench for hours, alone in the cold. Why won’t he go home? Film presented at e.g. Clermont-Ferrand ISFF.


Choulequec, dir. Benoit Blanc, Matthias Girbig (France) 2020, 26’, 16+
