How Would You Like Your Films to Be Seen?

To broaden the discussion and move it a bit away from the decision makers, we asked directors whose work will be present at this year’s festival about how they imagine their films in the future of cinema. Our question to the people who actually create the content of the current debate was simple: how would you like your films to be seen? text by Adam Harangozó

Ori Aharon Dolfin Megumi (Rubber Dolphin) – Cinéfondation

"

I like to take small stories and make them big, so no doubt it should be screened big. It's not just the size, it's the set up – I don't want the viewer to be able to fast forward, stop in the middle or be active in any way, just to watch closely and listen carefully – for that, the old fashioned cinema experience is where I want to show my future films. But honestly, I just want my films to reach as many viewers possible, and secretly wish I could be present in the room with each of them, to see how they react.

End of Season – Cinéfondation

"

Our life has become irretrievably individualistic and virtual. But I hope my films will be primarily experienced in the sacred darkness of the cinema, surrounded by other people.

Las cruces – Quinzaine des Réalisateurs

"

I imagine showing a film in a cinema where people are lying on a comfortable bed, the films are screened on the ceiling, and the audience can fall asleep.

Michael Borodin Ya normalniy (Normal) – Semaine de la Critique

"

I would like my work to reach the audience as soon as possible. It’s not so important for me how the viewer will watch the movie: at home on the couch, on the train, on a mobile device or on the back of the seat in a plane. It's another matter when I sit in the movie theatre as an author and observe the reaction of the audience, but this is rather selfish. However I understand that there are some sacred rituals like going to the movies, where you and a few strangers are watching a film, and this is also very cool. But this ritual is not an excuse to deprive streaming resources of the opportunity to participate in festivals.
