Jacob Secher Schulsinger
Having graduated from the National Danish Film School as a film editor in 2009, Jacob Secher Schulsinger edited his first two feature-length films – 'Volcano' by Rúnar Rúnarsson and 'Play' by Ruben Östlund – both of which premiered at the Cannes Film Festival in 2011. His first film as a director, the short documentary 'Fini', won a Danish Academy Awards and several international awards, including the inaugural Bill Douglas Awards at GSFF12. His second film, 'Matar Extraños', which he co-directed with Nicolás Pereda, premiered at the 2013 Berlin Film Festival. He has also completed work as a co-editor on Lars von Trier’s 'Nymphomaniac' and edited Ruben Östlund’s feature 'Turist'.
Talking Shorts is delighted to present you to Glasgow Short Film Festival’s brand-new podcast, available here, on the festival's website and on all major podcast platforms.
In the approach to GSFF 2021 the festival will be releasing eleven episodes. Nine episodes feature conversations between the previous winners of the Bill Douglas Award for International Short Film and a member of that year's jury. Glasgow Short Podcast will also bring you a conversation between the curators and some of the filmmakers of the strand Barbed Wire Love: Artists, Filmmakers and their North of Ireland Troubles, and a summary of the whole festival programme, featuring various members of the festival team and their guest curators.
The first episode is about 'Fini', a film about an 85-year-old man living with Alzheimer’s disease, and the first Bill Douglas award winner ever. Here's director Jacob Secher Schulsinger in conversation with jury member Ian Sellar (Co-Head of Fiction, National Film & Television School).
The podcast is produced by Halina Rifai from Glasgow Podcart and A Sonic Hug, with music by Lewis den Hertog.
