QUICK OVERVIEW

CONCEPT DESCRIPTION:

Cinedictum is an independent cine-philosophical genre. The genius of cinedictum is the same as that of aphorism in literature, but in cinematography. It is a short dictum stated in a figurative style by the film medium.
In short, Cinedictum is a form of film-aphorism. It is a very short film whose concise narrative holds both moral and entertainment value, while addressing universal themes.


ADVANTAGES OF CINEDICTUM:

1. Cinedictums are very short films with no language barrier (they are silent), they can be understood anywhere in the world - they have got "a biggest audience ever";
2. Cinedictums have philosophical contents (as aphorisms or quotations in literature) - they are "portions of wisdom"; Cinedictums will never get old as they are made in classic style;
3. Cinedictums are very short and don't take much time - "viewers will always watch until the end"; :-)
4. Cinedictums are very funny and interesting movies - they are "very entertaining";
5. Cinedictums, like aphorisms in literature, have very strong attraction. This occurs because ideas are expressed in bright form with precision - "strong attraction and impression on viewers";
6. There are no guns, murders, sex, drugs or cruel fights in these films - they are "violence-free";
7. Cinedictums are kind and humane - "they benefit society"; Cinedictums are independent. No one tells us what kind of films to create, or how to do it. We are independent and we are proud of it.
8. Films are transnational and transcultural; People from all countries and cultures, from any social groups will easily understand and relate to them as they discover very common themes - "universality";
9. Because they are so short (up to 3 minutes) - they can be shown anywhere: from big screens to cell phones - "greatest exposure opportunities";
10. Cinedictums have moral, entertaining, treating, educating, and advertising functions - "they solve several problems simultaneously".
