Festival Favourites from 40 years

90s

Our main anniversary programme Festival favourites from 40 years is a treasure trove of short film candy from across the festival history. There are winners of Oscars and Palm D’Ors – not to mention our own Jackdaw of course. First and foremost these are the audience favourites. 5 programmes neatly lined up – but sometimes wildly unkempt – per decade, for us to enjoy taste over time.

CROSSROADS

For anyone who has ever confronted a difficult decision in which none of the solutions seems like the right one, Crossroads will have a special resonance. Made at a time when the director was facing great uncertainty in his life, the film is an extended, often humorous, look at a man pulled in too many directions, in a world in which everything keeps changing and all roads seem to lead back to the beginning.

Germany 1991 / 9:00 / Director: Raimund Krumme

BLIGHT

The film documents events on a London street over the course of a year when a highway was built. Fragments of interviews are mixed with natural sounds and music into a rhythmical and emotional collage that received the award for best experimental film at Uppsala in 1997.

United Kingdom 1996 / 14:00 / Director: John Smith

SORTIE DE BAIN

A cheeky little tale of the dramatic impact a little girl’s growing up has on her parents. The film centers on that very private place, the bathroom.

Belgium 1994 / 4:00 / Director: Florence Henrard

TWO SISTERS

Viola writes novels in a darkened room. Marie, her sister and only companion, takes care of her every need. The arrival of a stranger throws their order into chaos. The images are etched directly onto tinted 70 mm film.

Canada 1991 / 10:00 / Director: Caroline Leaf

A YEAR ALONG THE ABANDONED ROAD

Most of the year, the village of Børfjord lies empty with virgin snow between cold houses. People only show up during a short and hectic summer season. But the cycles of nature go on. Through technology we go on a magic flight through time and space.

Norway 1991 / 12:00 / Director: Morten Skallerund

A SUMMER DRESS

Two young men in love are on holiday. One of them gives in to temptation… with someone else. A refreshingly happy summer story about infidelity and love across all borders.

France 1996 / 15:00 / Director: François Ozon

ALONE. LIFE WASTES ANDY HARDY

Judy Garland yearns for Mickey Rooney in this ingenious passion play. Images and sounds from three mild teenage dramas are put together, forming something considerably more corruptible.

Austria 1998 / 15:00 / Director: Martin Arnold

MAJORETTES IN SPACE

Dimitri, a cosmonaut on Soyouz 27, thought about cheerleaders while in space. He likes them. Catherine and Laurent like making love. Vincent likes boys, and John Paul II likes airport asphalt. This is a proud film which will lighten your heart.

France 1996 / 6:00 / Director: David Fourier

MORE

Gray concrete and monotonous everyday life. A world where happiness is an exception. We meet an old inventor who struggles to find meaning in his gloomy and colourless life. The technically very impressive More was originally created on 70 mm film. It was nominated for an Academy Award in 1998.

United States 1998 / 6:00 / Director: Mark Osborne
