As a student at the Moscow Film School, it only made sense that Natalia Gurkina (@madhatterzero) enter the #TIFFxInstagram Shorts Festival, a digital short film competition. “I couldn’t imagine a reason why I wouldn’t participate,” says Natalia, whose 60-second film “Confession” — a love story within a story — was the Jury’s Choice Award winner from the Toronto International Film Festival (@tiff_net). Her inspiration came from the theme of love — and the reality of shooting on a mobile phone. “The idea just appeared in my head, like I’d seen the whole movie already and we just needed to film it,” says Natalia. When it comes to making a film for Instagram versus the big screen, the difference is clear: “You need to say everything you want in a short time,” says Natalia. “It should be clear and bright.” 🎥🤳
