Short Film Long Impact
Short films are the first examples in the history of cinema…
They have played a significant role in the development of the cinema, in the emergence of various genres, and in the discovery of new talents.
Short films are the name given to more personal and free works with a brief account expressed in a fluent and impressive language, a plot that revolves around one theme, and a limited use of characters.
As a field of experimental cinema where new perspectives, different shooting techniques, striking sound recording forms and impressive acting styles are tested, short films have been the tool of artists who are sensitive especially to social issues and who intend to draw attention to these issues.
Social issues are expressed through the power of art
Supporting a great number of projects with the understanding that social development is possible through unleashing individuals’ potentials and sharing inspiring stories with society, Sabanci Foundation initiates another long-lasting culture-art project.
The Foundation is organizing a Short Film Competition called “Short Film, Long Impact” in order to support addressing social issues through art.
The competition to be initiated this year by Sabanci Foundation is themed “Refugee Women”.
The aim of the Sabanci Foundation Short Film Competition is to raise awareness about social issues by using the creative perspective of the cinema and its power of influence.
