Canyon Cinema travels to Berkeley this week for a special screening of pivotal works from its collection. As a part of Canyon Cinema 50, its celebration of half a century in continuous operation, and together with the Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive’s ongoing series Hippie Modernism: Cinema and the Counterculture, 1964-1974, the distributor will co-present Elegy To Ecstasy, an evening of films made by some of the most influential figures in the history of avant-garde cinema.
This symposium will expand the defining attributes of Fluxus film by addressing the problematic role of documentation within Fluxus practices, the documentation of performances as material film objects and the performativity of media, and the politics of presence in Fluxus film and performance. Includes screening of film and video works by Wolf Vostell, Eric Andersen, Nam June Paik, Ludwig Schönherr, Paul Sharits, and Carolee Schneemann, among others.

Every year, Art Cinema OFFoff organises its own Mass where experimental film and music are worshipped. The 'Nacht van de Experimentele Film' 2017 will take place in the Sint-Autbertus church, part of the Monasterium (Monastery) PoortAckere in the Oude Houtlei. B.A.A.D.M. (a music label from Ghent managed by graphic designers Joris Verdoodt and Mathieu Serruys) and film curator Sofie Verdoodt collaborated to put together the programme. Blasphemous iconoclasts and trance filmmakers from the American avant-garde are accompanied by brand new soundtracks by promising talent from the experimental music scene. Séances and installations complement the programme.
