Not many people know it, but Funen actually has its own alternative film school – for many years it was located by the hills that roll by Faaborg, but now it lives at Kulturmaskinen in Odense, going by the name 18frames.

To celebrate the film school’s 10th year, they will be showing an array of films from their archives in association with OFF. Since the program started, I’ve tried to follow along with the movies that came out of it, and I’ve been lucky enough to see quite a few of them through the years. As is befitting student films, they are greatly varied in form, content, genres and level of experimentation. Which is really impressive. There are a number of talented filmmakers who have come out of the school through the years, many getting accepted into the National Danish Film School and/or creating impressive careers in the business afterwards.

I remember “Trekanter af Lykke” all the way back from the second graduating class, which will be showing during the festival. In addition, they’ll also be screening “Mod resten af verden” which was nominated for Ekko awards in both the Shortlist and Audience Choice categories in 2018.

18Frames is an independent film school with 18 members per year, divided into 6 disciplines: Director, cinematographer, writer, producer, editor, and audio producer. The program takes 2 years and 6 months. 18Frames is run by the members, that is to say, the students, who design their own education, hiring instructors from the industry for lectures and workshops, while running the organization with financial support from Film Fyn and various foundations.
