As one of the festival’s components, the Saskatchewan Filmpool Cooperative will be presenting The Caligari Film Project including an international Call for Submissions of short films paying homage to this influential art movement. Generally considered to be the quintessential German Expression film, The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari (1920) features a dark and twisted aesthetic with sharp pointed forms, oblique lines and angles, low key lighting and the use of exaggerated sets and mise-en-scene. The film tells the story about an insane hypnotist who uses his somnambulist accomplice to commit murders. In addition to Dr. Caligari, other highly influential German Expressionism films include the classics Nosferatu (1922), Metropolis (1927) and M (1931). The Saskatchewan Filmpool Cooperative’s Call for Submissions will be requesting short films (made within the past two years and not to exceed 10 minutes), which have been influenced or inspired by German Expressionism cinema. Saskatchewan filmmakers should contact the Filmpool for discounted submission rates before submitting their film.
