New Artistic Director
The end of the festival will also see the end of an era, as the festival’s current Artistic Director steps down. For family-related reasons, Reto Bühler has decided to pursue new goals. Over the past eight years, the 37-year-old has enriched the festival with his enormous short film expertise and his large network of contacts. We wish Reto Bühler all the best for his future!
We are pleased to welcome John Canciani as our new Artistic Director. Canciani, who hails from Winterthur, is a known face at the festival thanks to his many years as a team member and experienced curator of various programmes. Thanks to his work for the Swiss Youth Film Festival, Kurz&Knapp and the International Short Film Festival Winterthur, he is the ideal person to take up the job. We are looking forward to working with John Canciani as from mid-december 2012.
This year, again, the International Short Film Festival Winterthur could prove that even artistically challenging films can find a broad audience. In six instead of five days the number of spectators increased to 16.000. The extension to six days was therefore a success.
