We are very happy to announce the dates for our third year as

HIVE is an international short film festival based in Berlin.

 

HIVE empowers diversity in a world of discriminative “-isms”! 

 

HIVE invites filmmakers to celebrate their identities!

We are happy to provide a ground for those who choose to express this attitude with cinematic mediums.

With carefully curated selections, we create a space for different perspectives.

 

Ultimately, HIVE aims to create a fusion between cultural producers and the audience to bring different communities and ideas together.

 

HIVE presents a vivid experience for those cinephiles who share our passion for cinema.

17:00 - Selection 2 / Curling Eyelashes - Feminisms of the Everyday (83 min.)

Women confront structures of oppression in all aspects of life. The seeming invisibility of the patriarchal ideology is put into question by the filmmakers of this selection, as they take control of their own narratives, images and means of production. By engaging documentary form with newer online formats such as TIKTOK, we hope to explore the diverse modes of expression through audio-visual means.
