Cast and crew alike got to witness the first glimpse of the Kurzfilmtage Short Film Festival’s official trailer last night, which will be available to television watchers in Switzerland, Austria and Germany over the next few weeks. In alignment with the Zurich Film Festival, the Internationale Kurzfilmtage Winterthur celebrates short film’s exploration of storytelling in regards to toying with perception.
This year’s selection of trailer was no exception. Swiss filmmaker Benny Jaber unveiled a stylized short that seamlessly fools the viewer’s assumptions with a dolly pull that reveals entirely new frames.
Jaberg, known for his short documentary “The Green Serpent – of vodka, men and distilled dreams,” also won the Best Short Documentary Award at both the Zurich (2013) and Swiss Film Awards (2014).
The Zurich Film Festival launched September 24 and ends October 4. Its premiere of Jaberg’s trailer is in preparation for The Internationale Kurzfilmtage Winterthur, which will take place in Winterthur, Switzerland, November 3-8.
