  • 7th (S8) Mostra de Cinema Periférico: New Impressionists

    (S8) Mostra de Cinema Periférico celebrates its seventh edition in A Coruña from June 1 to 5. This time the festival will hold a special edition under the tilte of "New Impressionists", bringing together both emergent and veteran filmmakers whose work engages the experimentation with light and its pictorial qualities. Probing the limits of sensory perception and subjectivity, this group of filmmakers has signed some of the most visually stimulating works made in recent years. This is the case of Canadian filmmaker Stephen Broomer that will present a fine selection of his 16mm works. Films in which the colors and textures evoke the work of the original Impressionists, and in which the author uses fast sweeps, collisions and movements that challenge the eye, and make imagine the filmmaker operating the camera as if you ran a box light with the ways of action painting.

  • Atelier 105 - Post-production residency for video - Second commission 2016

    In January 2015, 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 10 to 15 projects per year. Atelier 105 is intended for short-, medium- or feature-length projects, which have completed shooting or are still in the production phase, and which are made with or without the backing of an independent production company. While the project must fall within the field of experimental cinema, no other criteria (format, theme, processing, length, nationality of filmmaker, etc) will be imposed.

  • Alchemy Film and Moving Image Festival 2017 Call for Entries

    Submissions are now open for Alchemy Film and Moving Image Festival's seventh edition, to be held 2 - 5 March 2017. The submission deadline is 30th October 2016. We welcome submissions of experimental film and artists’ moving image in any format - short or feature length films, live cinema, installations or curated film programmes.

    Alchemy Film and Moving Image Festival is an international festival of experimental film and artists’ moving image. Submissions of artists’ and experimental film from any part of the world are welcome – we celebrate a diverse range of works: the visually experimental, quietly poetic, formally radical, psycho-geographical, politically activist, culturally subversive, psycho-spiritual, the alchemically volatile, the underground and bizarre. Conventional or commercial-style narrative dramas, animations and  documentaries are less likely likely to be successful – unless they are truly original in form and content.

  • PFDEC 2016: Call for entries for filmmakers under 15 years old

    If you are younger than 15 years old and you have already made or wish to make a film, the Collectif Jeune Cinéma gives you the opportunity to participate in an international experimental film festival. The films submitted must be at least one minute long, up to less than one hour. There is no imposed theme and you are not obliged to tell a story. A sensation, an impression, images that you find beautiful or interesting, your desire to try a specific kind of editing or to narrate in your own way without fearing imperfection or failures of the sound and image, a game with shapes that inspire you: all of these are some of the multiple possibilities to start to make your own film.
