Videoex International Experimental Film & Video Festival Zurich, 20 - 28 May 2017 / 19. Edition
invites you to submit your work for the International & Swiss Competition
We are looking for: experimental, innovative and progressive cinematic works, moving image works that explore the possibilities of film as a medium, expanding the idea of film and cinema, experimental films (8mm / 16mm / 35mm (screened in original format), digital productions (experimental, videoart, essay, experimental documentary,...), innovative animation, experimental digital & graphic productions (to be screened), experimental documentaries, experimental music videos
For this months screening we are extremely lucky to have access to two prints of films by Gregory J. Markopoulos -the longer duration of Twice a Man, in which the filmmaker pushes his vision of an entirely new narrative cinematic form, followed by Bliss, a six minute film portraying with typical Markopoulos restrictiveness, an interior of an 18th century Byzantine Church on Hydra in Greece.
"The Stars Down to Earth" is the title of this year’s Forum Expanded programme and is taken from the text of the same name by Theodor W. Adorno in which he grapples with the role of the irrational in mass culture. The search for ways to enable art to deal with an increasingly intangible reality forms an essential similarity between the selected works. Bringing one’s gaze back down to earth now seems more necessary than ever before. Yet how can one use film to take hold of something real when that very concept is ever harder to grasp?

The 2nd edition of the Moscow International Experimental Film Festival stands on a ground stone laid in by the first run in July 2016, which has been moulded by the strong support of our multifaceted jury board, collaboration with an array of outsourced talent, gratifying (in both quality and scale) response of the press in Russia and abroad, but most importantly – the engagement of a wider creative young audience with this minor and brave approach in seeing things differently in film.
The Xcèntric experimental film cycle inaugurates a set of four sessions in parallel to the themes proposed in the CCCB's exhibition "1,000m2 of Desire. Architecture and Sexuality".
