Short Film: SMOKING, 11min., Belgium, Experimental

“I like cigarettes”, says a creed by this woman whose name we do not know but who smokes compulsively.
We understand that there is a police investigation to find out the killer of this innocence or nonchalance.
Dance of death with its addictions including self-image, narcissism, alcohol and cigarettes.
La cigarette who is the lover who will lead this young woman to illness, as if for a voluntary suicide.
Attention danger, but at the same time everything seems very pleasant, fluid, because this dancer with black stilettos is anesthetized by flowers, alcohol and pseudo-success.

The irony of this festival is that its goal is to not be around in 5 years time. To eventually not be relevant because there is zero need to have a festival geared for female talent and female stories because the stories presented in Hollywood and around the world are a balanced showcase of the human experience from both sexes. Our goal is to achieve a lot of success and then fold into oblivion simply because there is no need for this festival. This festival was created by the FEEDBACK Film & Writing Festival as a simple reaction to a strong need to showcase female talent from around the world in a more profound way. When putting together the weekly festival, the administration noticed a lack of a female presence in the stories being shown at the festival. A classic example and analogy to the frustration is how the festival noticed that even the smaller roles in a screenplay were written for a man to play. There was zero reason for this in many stories. How a police officer, or a political campaign manager, for example with 3-4 lines in a screenplay was a "HE" character. Why? And these are the screenplays written by the winners! The talented one who have obtained agents and have began/beginning their careers as a writer.
