The film festival where everything new is fundamental! On November 16 and 17, 2018, CineSud is organizing the fourth edition of the SHIFT Film Festival for filmmakers and audiences. Watch, listen, learn and inspire at many workshops, masterclasses, screenings and more.
SHIFT Film Festival is focused on a new perspective in the film world: shift in perspectives. Have there been any changes for women in the film world post #metoo? Can mobile phone films be regarded as art? The program is full of workshops, masterclasses, evaluation possibilities, in-depth discussions and short films at the Official Competition.
The Official Competition will be announced in September. Below you will find the program of the FilmCampus and the various workshop which you need to register for. Here are some highlights of SHIFT 2018: one-on-one scriptsession and Directing Actors Masterclass by no other than Joost van Ginkel, a panel discussion about the representation of women in film, the avant-premiere of CineSud Talent film and a two-day FilmCampus with workshops by a director and screenwriter Edwar Stelder (Heaven on Earth), a filmmaker and producer Paul Ruven (The Bombing), an editor Annelies van Woerden (A’dam – EVA), a producer Harro van Staverden (Phanta Basta!) and many others! And as always – the Official Competition where short films will compete for the Best Newcomer Award.

Shift in Affection
Every year CineSud Talent selects three promising short film projects and filmmakers get a year-long coaching and a budget to make their project. This evening there is a exclusive (closed) premiere of three short films:
The Salmon and You – Raynor Arkenbout
Sovereign – Remy Kooi
Wild – Jan Verdijk
Selected filmmakers will also pitch a new film idea for which they can win money from CineSud.
Afterwards we celebrate the premiere at networking party.
Access only by invitation.
Together with Joost van Ginkel and professional actors you will work on your own script while two or three scenes will be worked on and analyzed.

People who dare to question important themes today, are often silenced or labeled as suspicious and dangerous. Where once democracies valued and encouraged debate society is dividing itself with stark lines between the left, the right, the good or the bad. This is what Dutch documentary maker Marijn Poels experiencing in Paradogma.
What is strangling debate? How liberal is the West? Should we ignore or embrace other perspectives? A critical, thought-provoking journey through ancient tribal conflicts, in a new era wherein world views clash and free speech crumbles under pressure to conform.
Paradogma is the second part in the planned trilogy by Award-winning documentary filmmaker Marijn Poels.
After the screening Marijn Poels will debate with Leo Hauben (L1) and the audience on this topic and is available for Q&A.
One of the most striking discussions in the film world in recent years has been the one about #metoo. In a panel discussion with Jennifer O’Conell (artistic director of the Women’s Film Festival, Assen), the department of Cultural Sciences at Maastricht University, film director Kim Hotterbeekx and Maria Vatista from Meet Maastricht we will discuss current developments concerning the representation of women in the film world and culture and ask whether, thanks to this attention, a shift has actually taken place in the film climate.
Costs: € 5 (excluding VAT). Discuss and watch.
