国际展映 Nebula 星云

​国际展映单元 /虚构类短片




​Nebula 星云单元共有20部影片,像以往一样,我们对传统“叙事”的概念提出了质疑。新的时代创造了新的语境,而新的语境需要新的语法。我们看到一些作品将生活打碎的熊熊野心,另一些则试图将情感舒缓地平铺,试图建立绵长的线索;诸如金贤德的《在路上》,朱尔斯·卡兰的《初恋》则更多地体现为一种力量悬殊的对抗;《灭蚁人》和《大火将至》则尝试掏空我们的日常,让我们不再对生活的危机熟视无睹,在立陶宛影片《静水》和加尔达诺·里贝蒂的《J》中,我们也发现内在灵魂本能在源源不断地帮我们充填冰冷的当代精神……

Nebula selection showcases short films from all over the world, which will be screened in 5 to 7 sections. In general, ‘Nebula’  celebrates narrative and fictional shorts, with evident storytelling structures and an intention of portraying figures. ‘Nebula’ accepts content that is 30 minutes or under.
