  • Spectral Film Festival

    The Spectral Film Festival believes deeply in the capacity of filmmaking to embody individual and collective voices. Innate to its character, this festival seeks to celebrate unconventional forms of expression through experimental, avant-garde, and underground works. We are looking for short-form cinematic pieces that permeate the boundaries of texture, intimacy, and hybridity; those that are unnerving, immersive, expository, and are as daring as they ask their viewer to be in redefining what is accepted as fact.

    Traverse XXIII, March 13 - 31, 2019, Toulouse (France)
    Experimental{research/art}

    When an art is called “installation”, it implies an approach even if we can regret this appellation since “ephemeral”, in situ, a moving sculpture, taking up space, minimalism of a large screen with loop option, in other figures, refuses this enslavement to a place, for a closed use. He has to question his relationship with space, with those who approach it, it thinks itself in intersubjectivity. When an art borrows an ambiguous term connoting prowess, but however emancipates itself from the couple action-reaction/action-result; we can regret that one assimilates it to a live show, with its rules of completion whereas it is performative, that it exists through what it does.
