Swing your Shorts competition!
As part of the 14th edition of the Tournai Ramdam Festival which will take place from January 12 to 22, 2024, Ramdam, “the disturbing film festival”, in partnership with Ours Blanc studio prod, is organizing a competition for very short films of maximum 2 minutes.

The theme ?
Make a film of 2 minutes maximum dealing with a disturbing subject in a completely free way. Funny, traumatic, creative, subversive, free or committed: it’s up to you to choose the tone of the film, at the Tournai Ramdam Festival, it’s carte blanche and without taboos!

A subject that is disturbing, that sparks debate? Sexuality, racism, harassment on social networks, violence, drugs, death, poverty, advertising, war, populism, for example. The objective is to allow participants to think about a subtle and effective way of raising awareness among the viewer through a short film that is likely to make people think, shake up minds and spark dialogue.
