Der er masser af grunde til at tage en tur til Odense for at se film fra den 27.august og en lille uge frem. Der er kortfilmfestival med et bedste af det bedste fra hele verden. Der er mulighed for at se de bedste danske dokumentarfilm og kortfilm fra det sidste år anbragt i en national konkurrence og der er fremragende specialprogrammer.

Som doku-freak vil jeg anbefale et kig på programmet med ”polske mestre”, hvor der bl.a. er dokumentarfilm af Kieslowski og hans læremester Karabasz. (Hvis der er nogen der er specielt interesseret i disse to herrers dokumentarfilm, kan jeg anbefale de dvd-bokse, som er udgivet med dem, med engelske undertekster, bare skriv til mig). For ikke at tale om en serie med den litauiske mester Jonas Mekas, som er en af avantgardfilmens fædre, som forlod sit hjemland for at bosætte sig i New York, til glæde for den amerikanske underground cinema.

Odense festivalen ledes af Cecilia Lidin, som også arbejder på EDN (European Documentary Network), hvor jeg var i kontorets første ti år – en glæde det er at se at hun har anbragt en international vinkel på Odense Film Festival.
