Official Selections 2021

 These are the finalist films, the Official Selections 2021.


HELL CHESS FILM FESTIVAL INTRO----- (Turkey) ----- Directed by BURAK KUM 

This is a little piece, a gift and an homage from this director to our Festival

It will be included in the beginning from the screening session. And it will be out of competition.




IMAGINARIUM OF THE UNKNOWN TRAVELLER----(AUSTRALIA) --- DAVID KING.

This awarded artist always submerges us inside his hallucinant world where everything is possible. For us, this piece of art is like  cinematic synesthesia... interior life and exterior traveling are all united in a magical way. This film plays out of competition.




 

ONCE THERE WAS A GIRL  ----------- (CANADA) --------------- Directed by Deb Ethier

This animation film got a very good taste and it represents all kind of childhood tales, books, and imaginative adventures. This film got a vague plot but the real point consists in reflecting all those suggestions:-Entering in the book door, woods, dreams, animals, mysteries...beautiful done.





SYMBIOSIS   ---------------- (Italy) ------------   Directed by Alberto Nacci.

This dancing videoclip has a black and white photography which is frankly well done, with an original song and a real personality to use shadows and a hard simplicity and pureness. The song got a nomination for the best song in the  Festival.




ABSURD MAN ------------------ (TURKEY) ---------------  Directed by Burak Kum

This fantasy comedy of a man in the mid of nowhere, listening his favourite music in the car using old tapes and living fantastic events is plenty of humour. The images are well lit. The actor enjoys the experience. We all live in an absurd world.




MURMUR OF THE HEART ---- (USA) --- Created by Martin del Carpio (performer)  & Jamie Muffet

This song is included in our new category and represents a melancholic view of the pieces we need to find love and happiness. Always searching in the disorder of life... a union. The notes of the piano are powerful and the voice got a punching quality. Nominated for the best song of the year.





DARK OR LIGHT --------------  (CANADA) -------- Created by Shazz Hudson (Angel & the Muse)

This song mixes different music syles (from rap to chill out) in a way that works. The voice is penetrating and probably it sounds like "a déjá vu" from decades ago when the music was real music. Congratulations. This song is nominated for the best song of this season.







ISOLDA DREAMS ------------- (GREENLAND) ------------------ Directed by Genevere Black

This beautiful short film will be the home of the songs that had no images. The philosophy of the silvery cat, the reaching of Heavens, the ethical goal of joy. All is shot with harmony. The capacity of telling many things with few paint brushes...









......... The date and real venue to screen the Hell Chess Festival 2021 will be at Viralata, calle del Olivar 17, Madrid. And in Delaruinalparaiso headquarters (Geranios st, Los Barrios -Spain-) at 11:00pm in October 31. Plus you will have an online screening summation at this website-----------
