Wouter’s presentation Brussels in the Belle Epoque returns us to the era when film was invented at the end of the 19th century and the modern city of Brussels was the capital of Belgium that was the second modern industrial superpower in the world, after Great Britain. Brussels lived the Belle Epoque (1870-1914) through art nouveau, eclectic and iconic buildings like the Bourse, wide central avenues (Boulevard Anspach), nice squares with gardens (Parc du Cinquantenaire, Mont des Arts etc.) the electric tram etc. Cinematographic views and short films show the metropolis of Brussels in the artistic and industrial Belle Epoque during which Brussels’ public space was profoundly transformed.

Kristian’s presentation Filming Paris: continuities and discontinuities explores the images of Paris especially in the 1960s through the films of Jean Rouch and Chris Marker. Since the 1910’s, Paris had been shot in many ways. This cinematographic experience has transformed Paris. Over the last century, thousands of films have had Paris as their setting. Three generations of filmmakers, René Clair, Jacques Tati, Jean Rouch, Chris Marker, Agnès Varda, Eric Rohmer, and later Jean-Pierre Jeunet etc. rediscovered Paris and recreate this city at different periods turning it in to a central unidentifiable space. Whether a mythical or enlightened city, Paris became often unrecognizable. How may we understand today the question of a hybrid city, under complete transformation, fragmented and reconfigured in this discontinuity cinematic process?

Jarmo’s presentation A tribute to Chris Marker (1921-2012), the French documentarist: Marker’s Paris concentrates on Marker’s role as an illuminating world traveler, whose films have taken the form of personal essays epitomizing the use of documentary for personal expression. Marker mixes complex interactions and opinions with ironic distance, wit, humor, and special fascination.

Mari’s presentation Concrete dreams, concrete nightmares. Tallinn's Lasnamäe district in fiction film stems from Veiko Õunpuu’s 2007 film Autumn Ball which is composed of a series of loosely connected stories set in an urban space mostly filled with dreary prefab apartment blocks. The central role of the abstract, anonymous modernist sleeper suburb is assigned to Tallinn’s Lasnamäe district. The film is without a doubt the most impressive depiction of an urban environment in Estonian cinema’s recent history. In fact, it could be argued that its main pathos is carried by the visuals and the setting. In this presentation Mari also expands the topic of Lasnamäe through mentioning films like "Keskea rõõmud" and recent "Nullpunkt".

She has been an Exchange Student, Hochschule für Kunst und Gestaltung Luzern (Switzerland) video department and is a member of the Estonian Artists Association.
Lilli’s presentation Narrative In Buildings is an exploration on how every building can speak us their personal story. Sometimes it is just fruitful to imagine what could happen behind these walls. For Lilli, it is inspiring to sense the environment through the context of the recent history, because the city holds itself so many different layers. Architecture has always been an expression of power. Many old buildings are smashed down and new supermarkets arise. Rapid changes have created a sense of alienation from reality. Lilli has used a variety of techniques; etching lithography, video and animation to emphasize and re-create those sensations.
Elen Lotman is a cinematographer, a member of Estonian Society of Cinematographers ESC and board member of IMAGO, European federation of Cinematographers. As a cinematography teacher, BFM representative of a 3 layers of storytelling project focused on developing a graduate cinematography curriculum and head of BFM film department she is invested heavily in film education through her practice as a cinematographer. Her PhD research explores the ways cinematography affects viewer engagement.
Elen’s presentation Representation of architectural spaces in films and perceived empathy of the viewer draws from empirical evidence of practicing cinematographers and scientific evidence of cognitive film theories to show how through reinforcing the perception of space already inherent in the architectural spaces might possibly have an effect on the affective response of the viewer.

Since 2003 Katrin Koov has worked in the architectural bureau KAVAKAVA OÜ.

From 2014 she is the editor of architecture journal MAJA. Katrin Koov is a member of the Union of Estonian Architects.
Katrin’s presentation Observations of the first two years of architecture film’s competition is a reflection from an architect’s point of view on the short architecture films created by BFM students. During the two years of a joint project between Estonian Union of Architects and BFM, supported by Estonian Culture Endowment, total of 11 short films on architecture were created by BFM students (6 films in 2013 and 5 films in 2014). The films’ precondition stated that the films should be approximately 5 minutes long, dialogue-free and include one chosen building as the main character of the film. The buildings were chosen for notability – either new and prized designs or remarkable for some other specific reason. Therefore it is interesting that htis truly interdisciplinary project is reflected upon also in an interdisciplinary way – by an architect.
