Short Films Premiere at Salzburg Media Academy

Long-serving faculty member Roman Gerodimos premiered his two short films at the ninth annual Salzburg Academy on Media and Global Change

Long-serving faculty member Roman Gerodimos premiered his two short films at the ninth annual Salzburg Academy on Media and Global Change on Monday, August 3, 2015.

Students of the program were treated to the world premiere of At the Edge of the Present, a short film on “urban coexistence”, as well as an advanced preview of the first cut the forthcoming film A Certain Type of Freedom, which focuses on youth and the city.

Gerodimos, principal lecturer in Global Current Affairs in the Media School at Media Academy partner school, Bournemouth University and leading commentator on Greek political affairs, acted as producer on the two short films, which are narrated by London-based actor, Sam Booth.

Ahead of the premier, Gerodimos explained that the two films are “slightly experimental in nature.”

“They blend primary and secondary academic research with photos from 40 cities from around the world in an effort to communicate ideas and debates around cities, urban coexistence, young people and media to broader audiences,” he added.

In addition to Monday’s screening, the films are available online via Vimeo, and will be screened at academic conferences and festivals around the world.
