  • Close-Up: William Raban. Making Films Politically?

    "The problem is not to make political films, but to make films politically." – Jean-Luc Godard 

    Close Up and Carroll/Fletcher are delighted to present a programme of films by William Raban. Artist filmmaker William Raban was a central figure of the London Film-makers' Co-operative. Initially known for his landscape and expanded cinema works of the 1970s, Raban's films from the 1990s onwards look at the island of Britain and its people, in the context of the global economy and the effects of urban change.

  • Open Call for Filmmakers: Yukon Residency

    The Weight of Mountains Filmmakers Residency Dawson City, Yukon Territory, Canada
    January 10 - April 4, 2018. Applications Close May 3, 2017

    Walking the line between structure and freedom, this residency is a many headed beast: a biennially rotating film collective on assignment, a performance of place, a cultural mirror, a momentary Narnia, an interventionist, a portal, an international exchange and dialogue, and a discovery of the invisible. The Weight of Mountains residency tailors a space for filmmakers to immerse themselves into remote, overwhelmingly present, or challenging environments world wide to intervene, divert, connect, challenge and enhance their creative practice with fellow contemporaries; bringing together international artists and cross-pollinating film and media with global perspectives.

  • Cineinfinito #13: Daniel Barnett

    "Daniel Barnett is a leading experimental filmmaker who develops complex metaphors in his films out of rephotography and other post-production techniques. [...] White Heart is his longest and most ambitious work. 'Barnett's film consists of many disparate images, chosen for their strong sensual qualities, coupled with a labyrinthine and equally sensual soundtrack. After establishing the basic images, Barnett begins to interweave them, exaggerating certain qualities (color, texture) during printing.
