Make 'em laugh, make 'em cry, make 'em wait.

The second thing to consider is variety within a programme. A programme is the structure that determines how the individual short films are watched. It is a second authorial voice that creeps into the viewing experience. As a programmer you have to decide how conspicuous you want to be.

You have to think, for instance, how thematically similar films should be placed, and how much the programmer's idea of what a film's about influences its positioning and the subsequent reading of the film by an audience. If you have two films about, say, male violence, do you put them side by side so you see the different directors' approaches clearly or should you give each film the space to act autonomously and separate them in a programme with other films?

At SHORTOMATIC we decided to concentrate on thematically similar programmes to throw light on the different narrative approaches artists and filmmakers adopt.
