Short is good! Short films society in a podcast version
Disclaimer: The covid-19 situation develops on a daily basis and this recommendation was written before the government chose to prolong the restrictions against events with bigger crowds gathering. It now seems even more important to support OFF by enjoying their new podcast.
Situationen med covid-19 udvikler sig dagligt, og ugeanbefalingen var skrevet inden regeringens forlængelse af restriktioner mod arrangementer med større forsamlinger. Det virker nu endnu mere vigtigt at støtte OFF ved at nyde deres nye podcast-koncept.
When Coronavirus anxiety has got me in its sway, it helps to think of a time when we have put all of this behind us. When the summertime has come, there will be handshakes and hugs (those high-fives could perhaps remain something we did prior to the pandemic and let all the property programs on the programming interface be kept as proof). Most importantly late summer will arrive, when all the city’s cultural festivals are up and running, almost stumbling on each other’s feet. One of the most lovely festivals is OFF, which actually makes you proud to be a citizen of Odense.
OFF has managed to sweeten our isolated state of emergency with the podcast Short is good!, where head of festival Birgitte Weinberger pays tribute to the short format in all its facets with actor Claus Riis Østergaard, who recently played a surprisingly hunky version of a troubled dad in Danish Broadcasting Corporation’s Fred til Lands.
The podcast is conveniently broadcast on Wednesday, just in time for your Easter vacation, but already on Monday you will be able to see the focal point of the conversation, on OFF’s Facebook page. As an "interactive short films society", according to the festival itself. A society that will soothe the wait for the proper festival in august. I myself am looking to watch and listen along!Link to the event
