The @aaltoarts originals film festival brings seven completely new, tailor-made short film diamonds to audiences across Instagram. The festival week screenings take place from Monday 26 April to Saturday 1 May 2021, every day at noon (EET) @aaltoarts on Instagram.

The film and TV industry is currently undergoing a massive transformation. In recent years, the industry has witnessed a fragmenting of digital consumption of film and TV content. Audiences have a multitude of new platforms and on-demand services to choose from, and movies and TV series can be watched anywhere with the tap of a finger on laptops, tablets or smartphones. Furthermore, the COVID-19 pandemic is likely to permanently alter the ways creative audiovisual content is produced, distributed and viewed.

This means that the film and TV industry is currently reinventing itself by exploring new technologies but also by making new combinations of different kinds of art forms.

As part of this trend of positive disruption, ELO Film School decided to embark on a short film exploration on Instagram. Lecturer Hanna Maylett’s course stretched the possibilities of this social media platform to the max. ELO students created tailor-made miniature films for @aaltoarts Instagram feed, and managed to portray whole universes within the limits of this platform.
