To mark the 25th anniversary of the festival, the Winterthur Short Film Festival, Zürcher Kantonalbank and Memoriav, the competence center for Switzerland’s audiovisual cultural assets, are making a breathtaking gondola ride into the world of the Swiss Film Weekly (1940-1975) possible. Take a seat in the gondolas and enjoy the view of a unique short film heritage with the four thematically compiled film blocks on women’s suffrage, cantons, cable cars and Winterthur.
The films shown in the gondolas come from the film inventory of the Swiss Film Weekly. The online publication on memobase.ch and recherche.bar.admin.ch of more than 6000 contributions to the Swiss Film Weekly is a joint project by Memoriav, the Cinémathèque suisse and the Swiss Federal Archives.
