“The Case” - from Berwick to Rotterdam

A short film made in Berwick by Swedish artist Cecilia Stenbom toured to London in the New Year and will soon travel to Glasgow and to Rotterdam in the Netherlands in the coming weeks.

The Case” – a short film inspired by the Nordic Noir genre - was produced as part of a 6-month residency with Berwick Visual Arts and premiered in front of a full house at Berwick Film & Media Arts Festival in September. The artists’ video went on to be presented at a sell-out screening at London Short Film Festival just last week, and will be screened as part of the AV-arkki showcase at the prestigious International Film Festival Rotterdam later this month, before being exhibited as part of the international competition at Glasgow Short Film Festival in February.

The Case will screen on:

• Saturday 25th January – AV-arkki & DINAMO (Distribution Network of Artists’ Moving image Organizations) Press & Industry screening, as part of International Film Festival Rotterdam

• Thursday 13th & Saturday 15th February – International Competition at Glasgow Film Theatre, as part of Glasgow Short Film Festival

Artist Cecilia Stenbom and co-commissioner and Berwick Film Fest director Melanie Iredale will be in attendance at both Rotterdam and Glasgow.
