  • A Light Shines Through

    At Untitled, San Francisco, curators Ashley Carr and Suzanne Modica present a video program called A Light Shines Through, featuring video work by artists including Andrea Bowers, Barbara Hammer, William E. Jones, Korpys/Löffler, Lars Laumann, Maggie Lee, Goshka Macuga, Melvin Moti, Mario Pfeifer, Martha Rosler, Tobias Spichtig, Hank Willis Thomas, Carrie Mae Weems, Judi Werthein.

    The last few years have seen worldwide upheaval, with conflicts over politics, economics, religion, race, sexual identity and social issues roiling our communities. In moments like this, when our environment feels tenuous, or even threatening, it is more important than ever that artists create work that responds to these conditions. With this in mind, we are presenting a diverse selection of videos primarily from the last decade that touch upon immigration, global and local economies, the war on terror, and personal loss, among other themes.

  • Walter Ruttman, Symphony of a Great City

    Ciné concert

    Produced in 1927, Berlin: Symphony of a Big City is considered one of the most iconic urban symphonies of late-1920s European avant-garde cinema. Reflecting the thinking of Futurism, Walter Ruttmann painted the portrait of the German city during one day, from dawn to dusk. The era of industrialisation was at its peak; urban modernism had become a fashion. The "city symphony" became a fully-fledged film genre, whose characters were the railway, the dance of the trams, the magic of electricity and the roar of automobiles. From this rapidly-developing city arose a resounding combination of new sounds, now given a new dimension by musicians Simon Fisher Turner, Klara Lewis and Rainier Lericolais through a contemporary sound and musical creation.

  • Xcèntric: Spaces for creation. Manon de Boer

    In her films, Manon de Boer explores the way in which memory is activated and how she renders it visible by means of the artistic process. Her portraits are introspective narratives in which the image and sound tracks are sensible surfaces that record the pleasure of filming the other, and music and words are regarded as sensorial experiences. This session shows her work by means of four of her most important films, including the presentation of her latest.

  • Film Panic Issue 3

    Film Panic Issue 3 is now available! This issue contains in-depth interviews with five exciting and unique contemporary filmmakers who are exploring the possibilities of the art of cinema!

    From the editorial: "In this issue of FILM PANIC we interview five contemporary filmmakers, each of whom is creating work that is totally independent both creatively and financially. Each one of them is forging their own path and playing their own part in expanding the possibilities of the art of cinema and, in their own way, continuing the journey that began many years ago with the pioneers of the medium."

  • Winnipeg Underground Film Festival 2017

    The Winnipeg Underground Film Festival is an annual showcase for contemporary experimental film + video, presented by Open City Cinema in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. The next festival will take place June 2 - 4, 2017.

    WUFF is seeking new and engaging moving-image works that deviate from traditional cinematic forms (whatever that means). Stronger consideration will be given to works under 20 minutes, and to those completed in 2015 or later, but exceptions may be made in both cases. If you think your movie is suited for our show, we'd like to see it; if you aren't sure, please check out our previous years' programs.

  • Bozar Cinema: Funérailles. De l’Art de Mourir - Boris Lehman

    “Having reached an age at which you think about getting your bags ready for the next world, I’m about to burn my life, to throw away all I’ve collected and accumulated for over half a century. Books, clothes, films, everything must, will disappear, in ashes and smoke. Funeral (on the art of dying) presents itself as the ‘last’ episode of my auto-cine-biographic work Babel, which covers over thirty years of my life. Funeral will bring this narration of life to its end. It can be considered as my last movie, as a will.” (Boris Lehman)

  • Saul Levine: Radical Correspondent

    Saul Levine is one of the leading figures in the autobiographical tradition within underground cinema. His films are often marked by a direct confrontation with the fragile material of 8mm, and the resulting works bear the marks of his construction, splices appearing like indentions in concrete.
