“Swiss Panorama” opens the special exhibition for BISFF 2019’s Guest Country, Switzerland. Here you can witness firsthand the various trends in Swiss short films. Switzerland holds its own even when compared to the surrounding film heavyweight nations (France, Germany, Italy), both in diversity and quality of short films. This Swiss potential can be witnessed in the “Swiss Panorama.”
We find in “Swiss Panorama” a total of five films, including two fiction films, two documentaries, and one animation, indicating that the strength of Swiss short films is not limited to certain genres. These insightful films show a keen observation of present-day Swiss society through both solid dramas and rambunctious scenes, while also acting as windows on the world.
