In the 2016 edition, the International Short Film Festival focused on the Latin American productions.
In 2015, Curta Cinema celebrated its 25th anniversary with more than 3,000 entries for the competitive shows. Exactly ten years ago, it became the first festival in Brazil to qualify its winners for a place as an Oscar nominee.
Cities are scenarios of stories lived and told by their inhabitants - personal narratives, characters, local chronicles - elements of constant cultural transformations. Neighborhoods are great living systems of connections and storytelling. This was our inspiration for the 2014 edition, which featured 250 films from more than 30 countries.
The year 2013 was a scenario of major events in Brazil. Different opinions and people met in the streets to join in ideas, voices and gestures. In its 23rd edition, the Short Film Festival invited everyone - tanners or not - to try this way of making and watching movies, a famous gestural film, presented in a reduced format. What is important is the chance to experience, the right to express ideas, to look and feel the time to tell their story. Even in that short film.
In 2013, the Short Film Festival featured more than 2,000 entries, presented 220 films and received about 7,500 spectators in their rooms.
Largest competitive event of short films in the country and the first to be qualified by the Academy of Motion Picture Sciences Hollywood to indicate films to the Oscar, the International Short Film Festival of Rio de Janeiro celebrated in November 2012, its 22nd edition. Showcasing about 300 films from 48 countries and a schedule full of debates, workshops and meetings with audiovisual professionals, the Festival received nearly 7,500 spectators. Since 2011 we are responsible for visual communication which reaffirmed, in 2012, the Festival's diverse and creative personality through the identity as support to unimagined possibilities, suggesting that ideas are always around us, just need a closer look.
The International Short Film Festival celebrated in 2011 its 21th edition. Considered the most competitive event of short films in the country, is the first to be qualified by the Academy of Motion Picture Sciences in Hollywood to indicate films to the Oscar. We were asked to create an identity that tells a story, that was part of the everyday, that could be present in the scenery as a ordinary view. We redesigned the urn and the new Festival official trophy. Our identity sought to honor colleagues who also participated in the construction of this visual history.
