20 years of contravision film festival
1993 – 2012
contravision – a film festival for those who not only want to passively watch films but want to make films themselves. underground films, independent and inventive, versatile, insubordinate, funny or melancholy, low budget or no budget but with great ambition. contravision doesn’t see itself solely as a competition but aims at increasing media awareness among both the filmmakers and the audience.
at contravision, the audience and not a jury of professionals is asked to chose the winners of the festival. we want to present the audience with highlights of creative film making by unknown directors and future stars with a focus on original ideas and imaginative realisation instead of technical sophistication.
the purpose is to refocus the publics attention on independent short films that are produced off the beaten track of mainstream cinema and therefore are often excluded from the commercial cinema circuits.
films encompassing every genre and subject, from different countries and continents will be screened. the only condition is a maximum running time of 30 minutes. brevity is the soul of wit.
