  • Turbidus Film #13: Gardens and landscapes

    Fylkingen and Turbidus Film present a film programme focused on gardens, structural landscapes and field studies. In micro narrative of almost non-action, re-structuring cinematic forms, archetypal routines, off-screen presence, image in the images, this program provides the violence of the Atlantic Ocean hitting the coast, Brancusi's scuplture garden at Tirgu Jiu, the beach of Palud, the fields in Bourgogne and a garden in blossom from a dead mother's house.

  • Found Footage Magazine issue #2

    Special on Barbara Hammer:
    Audacious Appropriations: Barbara Hammer’s First Half-Century, by Greg Youmans

    The scope, inventiveness, and audacity of Barbara Hammer’s career compel us to expand the frame from found footage to appropriation more broadly. Her appropriations of material from audiovisual archives (what is traditionally called found footage) came after and alongside more fundamental appropriations of various cinematic means of production, from film cameras and optical printing to a range of digital hardware and software, as well as the generic codes and practices of pornography and documentary. And these actions have in turn always been bound up with her appropriations of physical space: in film after film, Hammer wrests space (and time) away from heteropatriarchal coding and control.


  • Moscow Experimental Film Festival 2016 Call for entries

    Our 1st Moscow Experimental Film Festival is the first in its kind in Russia – which gives an excellent opportunity for both Russian artists and filmmakers together with talent from around the world to showcase their work side by side, reaching this minor approach in seeing things differently in film out to a wider audience in our country.

    MEFF is launched for the first time by a strong ambition to create a festival that fully devotes itself to a well-deserved and close up look at a wide range of experimental categories. This guarantees exclusive and thorough attention to talents that might have previously been overlooked by the vast number of conventional filmmaking festivals that only spare a small corner for experimental categories within their programmes, as well as to the works that are lost online in the vast variety of content nowadays.

    In collaboration with the Cinémathèque québécoise and the Double Negative Collective, VISIONS presents APPARITIONS, a live cinematic performance by Alex MacKenzie.

    “Alex MacKenzie is the unequivocal master of contemporary Canadian expanded cinema: using rare and outdated technology with the deft touch of a visual alchemist, MacKenzie spins his stunning and mesmerizing anti-narratives using the detritus of cinematic history to create a completely unforgettable, and undeniably powerful, alternate vision.”

  • Bruce Baillie Kickstarter project

    Preserving Bruce Baillie’s films and legacy: With the publication of a book and a touring retrospective of Bruce Baillie’s films, the project's goal is to share work that constitutes one of the most influential voices in avant-garde cinema. This touring retrospective and bilingual (Spanish/English) book will contribute to wider recognition of Bruce Baillie’s amazing films and expose new generations of filmmakers and film lovers in the US and abroad.

    We are planning an international film tour that launched at the Film Society of the Lincoln Center this April. The touring retrospective will travel to Spain (CCCB, La Casa Encendida, Tabakalera), the UK (Tate Modern), Mexico City (Distrital Film Festival) and many cities in the US including Washington D.C., San Francisco/Oakland, Boston, Los Angeles and more this year and in 2017.
