Shorts for Family

Toys! Dolls! Teddy bears! Since Ernst Hoffmann’s 1816 story The Nutcracker and the Mouse King​ became a famous ballet, and especially with Pixar’s highly successful Toy Story​ films, everybody knows that our children’s favorite friends made of wool, wood and plastic have little lives of their own when we’re not looking! With the six films from the “Shorts-Kids” section, you will be reminded of the special fondness that exists between children and their toys, and of the many ways in which they are dependent on each other.

 

Too often, differences between people, between their skin colors, their cultures or their ideas, ignite arguments or cause problems. Yet, understanding these differences can also lead to better acceptance and tolerance. The “Shorts-Youth” section illustrates this delicate but important theme in five relatable films. And, while these differences may sometimes appear irreconcilable, like between the titular Little Fish and the Crocodile​, an energetic and colorful film based on a Congolese tale, or between the various players of Are You Volleyball?!​, more often than not they tend to bring people together and inspire true friendships, like for the characters in Haru’s New Year​.

 

Finally, in lieu of the “Shorts-Family” section, this year the Busan International Short Film Festival will treat its audience to something original: a magic lantern show! Contrary to an usual film screening, this all-ages section is meant to be more interactive and even participatory for the audience, with a Korean actor named Choi Hyuk doing a live narration. Requiring a special projection equipment from the 19th century which will be brought from France, the “Magic Lantern” will definitely be a unique and unpredictable adventure for everybody!
