The world's smallest cinema to Hollywood

The world’s smallest cinema is going to Hollywood!

The news is out. The last couple of months we have been working hard to make something special happen. From the start we knew that the world’s smallest cinema belongs in Hollywood. We encountered some challenges, but we are pleased to announce that the cinema is on its way by ship and will arrive in California soon. We will travel between San Francisco and Los Angeles to visit a number of people and places with a special connection to film. We are very excited and are looking forward to this adventure. We hope to discover great things about the past and future of film. Please spread the word and follow our Facebook Page, Instagram and Twitter for regular updates!

The big common denominator by Tess Löwenhardt

In 2010 Tess Löwenhardt finished the short film, ‘De Grote Gemene Deler’ (‘The Big Common Denominator’). This is a co production with Fish Pix. Her collaboration with well-known D.O.P. Remko Schnorr, who took her visual concept and incorporated it into the whole film, makes this movie a true visual and emotional masterpiece. Shot on 35mm with anamorphic lenses, it’s a film that goes into the depth of family relations whilst being a cinematographic art film. This film has been selected for the 2011 Cannes Short Film Corner, Palm Springs Int. Short Film Festival, Oberhausen Film Festival, Interfilm Berlin and has won the ‘Best Film’ prize at the 4XF film Festival.

Synopsis

‘The Big Common Denominator’ is a tragic-comedy film of 5 minutes. It tells the tale of ‘Mientje’ (82), who doesn’t feel like celebrating her birthday with her family. Clearly she and her daughter have a conflict that has been going on for years. Will all be well on this special day?

‘Nachtblind’ (night blindness) by Nena van Driel

In collaboration with Niels Lelieveld and Boris Bijl, Nena van Driel wrote a story about an overworked detective. The film has elements of a Film Noir, which gives it a grim atmosphere. The film has been made independently and has been showed in many theatres and at many festivals. Cabaret at its best.

Synopsis

Young detective David Stoffer is on his way home. After working 72 hours straight he has enough of it. When David arrives at home everything seems to be normal, he starts his routine. Until he walks into his living room and finds a balloon. He has not put it there, but who has? And why?
