SHORTCUTZ RIO DE JANEIRO
Olho da Rua
Rua Bambina, 6, Botafogo, Rio de Janeiro
Last Saturday of each month
Shortcutz Rio de Janeiro stands for an urban revolution of ideas, projects, and people, thus becoming a meeting point for the creative, cultural, and artistic trends in Rio.
Shortcutz Rio de Janeiro provides a platform for emerging talent to showcase their work, engage with their audience and connect with the established professionals of the arts. Once a month, we screen two to three short films by up-and-coming directors and present live the work of rising artists: from music to photography or drawing to fashion (our special guests). At the end of each screening, the filmmakers and artists alike engage in a discussion with the audience.
Two to Three Brazilian short films, up to 20 minutes long, produced in the former year, will be selected for broadcasting in each session. The winner of each month will compete in the annual festival awards for several categories such as: best film, best actor, best actress, best photography, best musical score, etc…
Shortcutz Rio de Janeiro ‘s mission is to give spotlight to Brazilian professionals or young filmmakers and to an array of interdisciplinary artists, promoting their works in Brazil and across the world through the vast Shortcutz Network.FACEBOOK VENUE
We are accepting Brazilian Short Films from 2015 onwards, with no more than 20 minutes. Please send the online link, 2 stills and short bio to the following email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Shortcutz Rio de Janeiro aims for a collaborative experience, bringing together artists and audience in a transmedia experience. The films will be evaluated by a selected group of recognised artists, ranging from film to music, theatre or photography. Each session has a vote delivered by the audience, that will expand to an online voting, therefore creating a wider platform of voters, and expanding the range of its network.
