BALANCE and JUNKYARD to the Oscars

27 August 2012

Dutch short films BALANCE and JUNKYARD submitted to the Academy Awards 2013

Short fiction film BALANCE and short animated film JUNKYARD were selected by an independent committee of Dutch film professionals to be submitted to the Academy Awards in the categories Best Live Action Short Film and Best Animated Short Film.

Balance

BALANCE is directed by Mark Ram and produced by Deepeei film productions in co-production with Studio Act2Act. It’s Mark Ram’s first film and was selected for the Debut Competition of the upcoming Netherlands Film Festival.

In BALANCE two friends (Henderson and Morris) are climbing a mountain, connected by a rope. They take an easy passage, but a loss of oversight leads to Henderson's fall. Morris cannot prevent falling too. Seconds later he finds himself hanging above an abyss, realizing the balance is unstable.


Junkyard

JUNKYARD is directed by Hisko Hulsing (SEVENTEEN, HARRY RENTS A ROOM) and produced by il Luster in co-production with CinéTé (Belgium). The film had its world premiere at the Annecy International Animation Film Festival and is selected for the Ottawa International Animation Film Festival. JUNKYARD will also be screened in the Golden Calf Competition of the Netherlands Film Festival.

In JUNKYARD a man is being robbed and stabbed by a junkie and in that last second before he dies, a youth friendship flashes before his eyes.

On Tuesday 15 January 2013, the nominations for the Academy Awards will be announced in all categories. The Oscars ceremony will be held on Sunday February 24, 2013.
