Het SHIFT Film Festival 2017 kent dit jaar voor het eerst een competitie. Een driekoppige jury reikt een drietal prijzen uit: Best Newcomer Award, Best Euregional Newcomer en Best Virtual Reality Film. Verder kunnen zij een Special Jury Award uitreiken en is er ook nog een Audience Award. Stem mee op je favoriete film!

VOORWOORD Het SHIFT Film Festival heeft een speciale focus op nieuwe makers en de snelle en dynamische wijze waarop het maak- én kijkproces van films verandert. Dolby Atmos, Virtual Reality en bewegende stoelen: hoe groots en indrukwekkend technische vernieuwingen ook zijn, het verhaal van een film blijft het belangrijkste aspect van een film(beleving). Daarom stellen we voor het SHIFT Film Festival 2017 storytelling centraal. Het zorgvuldig samengestelde programma loopt uiteen van studentenfilms tot virtual reality producties. Soms zit de inhoudelijke ingeniositeit en ‘vernieuwing’ in iets kleins (zoals een pakkende cameravoering in een studentenfilm), soms in iets opvallends (zoals een compleet met een drone of telefoon geschoten film) en soms zit die haast verborgen (zoals in een collage natuurbeelden met een drone, waar ditmaal niet enkel voor het wauw-effect wordt gegaan, maar door middel van een vernuftige montage een verhaal wordt geconstrueerd in het hoofd van de kijker).

Kortom: altijd staat de inhoud voorop. Ook bieden we een gevarieerd randprogramma, met een gratis lounge-corner in de foyer van Lumière Cinema waar je gratis films en virtual reality films kunt kijken, activiteiten voor professionals en netwerk- en borrel-momenten met muzikale begeleiding voor de filmkijker en -liefhebber. Zien we jou 16-19 november in Lumière Cinema in Maastricht? SHIFT Film Festival focuses on new filmmakers and the fast and dynamically changing ways in which films are being made and watched. Dolby Atmos, Virtual Reality and moving cinema seats: technical innovations are changing drastically the way we experience a film. However, no matter how big and impressive they may be, there is one aspect that will always be the most important: the story. That’s why for SHIFT Film Festival 2017 our main theme is: build your own story. Besides our thorough selection of short films (from documentary to animation, fiction and virtual reality) we offer several masterclasses and lectures and a free Lounge Corner, where you can watch the best virtual reality films and the Out of Competition film selection for free. When the program is suitable for English spoken guests, the note (ENG) will be put next to the program title. Will we see you November 16-19 in Lumière Cinema Maastricht?

SHIFT Film Festival proudly introduces a film competition which about 45 films from different countries compete in for five awards: Best Newcomer Award, Best Euregional Newcomer, Best Virtual Reality Film, Audience Award and a Special Jury Award.
