(S8) Mostra Internacional de Cinema Periférico will return to A Coruña from May 31 to June 4 to celebrating a special anniversary- its 8th edition - with an ambitious program. The new edition, under the title of Objects and Apparitions, is inspired by found footage cinema under the figure of the seminal artist of this film process, Joseph Cornell. The legacy of the North American multidisciplinary and surrealist creator has guided the elaboration of the official poster, where, imitating a kind of Cornell box, the spirit of appropriation is used to reflect his whole philosophy. Together with Cornell, the (S8) will present the works of two of the most prominent representatives of found footage film now: Cécile Fontaine and Luther Price. In addition, the program Found Sounds, curated by Mónica Savirón, will revolve around the work of Dutch filmmaker Barbara Meter.

Nocturnal Reflections presents 3 films by Giuseppe Boccassini. Reflecting on the concept of the haptic proximity of contemporary media, film is a phallic conquerer that, folding in on itself, now flaccid deus ex machina, observes itself from the inside like a lysergic membrane that slowly founders between the folds of its own material.
RETRO is a screening of experimental films and documentaries from emerging, established and award-winning artists and filmmakers. Join us for an evening of eclectic experimental shorts that reflect ‘the old’, whether music or machines, paper or pixel, crass or cool in our new bigger venue in the heart of Brighton.

The 24 hour “television network” will combine live performance, with remote broadcast and pre-recorded moving image content. Sign on / Sign offwill re-interpret the images of our collective identities through the lens of conventional media, using the structures of a full commercial broadcasting day as a platform for creative production and exchange.
In October 2014, Light Cone initiated artist residencies dedicated to video-based post-production of films that fall within the realm of experimental cinema, with the objective of supporting ten to fifteen projects per year. The residency is intended to suit the work-flow of experimental filmmakers, and so eligibility criteria are deliberately kept open. Short-, medium, as well as feature-length films are welcome, at the shooting or the editing stage of the project, and with or without the backing of an independent production company. While the project must fit within the field of experimental cinema, no other criteria (length, nationality of filmmaker, etc.) will be imposed.
