Crater-Lab presenta "Note To Self" un programa de películas en 16mm de Nazli Dinçel sobre psicosexualidad, que presentó en el festival FIDMarseille en la sección FOCUS. La realizadora turca, Nazly Dinçel estará presente para hablar sobre el programa y su linea de investigación sobre psicosexualidad y materia fílmica.
Una noche de películas viscerales y provocadoras hechas a mano que exploran cuerpos, actos de aislamiento, texto, lenguaje, información visual y exposición personal. El trabajo de Nazli Dinçel reflexiona sobre experiencias de perturbación. Filma el cuerpo en el contexto de la excitación, inmigración, la dislocación y el deseo en yuxtaposición con la materialidad del medio: la textura, el color y el paso de la emulsión. Su uso del texto como imagen, lenguaje y sonido, enfrenta el fracaso de la memoria y su propio desplazamiento dentro de una sociedad occidental.

We welcome single-channel film and video works from within the fields of essay and experimental film, artists' moving image and media art; made for the gallery, cinema or other sites of display; as well as documentary, ethnographic and narrative films that seek to expand, redefine or reconfigure the means and ends of their respective fields.
“I sometimes keep to one shot for a long time. A certain tension builds up between the beginning and the end of that shot, which immediately looks like fiction. It is indeed difficult to escape from fiction. But in the same way it’s also difficult to escape from the documentary style.” —Chantal Akerman.
GAZE invites submissions for Certain Tension, a tribute to Chantal Akerman’s vision and practice in exploring tensions between documentary and fiction. With this exploratory homage, we invite films and videos that extend or critique Akerman’s work. The call is open to short form films, videos, or installations that draw on the themes of Akerman’s legacy––personal explorations that entangle with social issues, the relation between personal memory and political history, the cinematic experience of time, and the interweaving of fiction and documentary.
ORACLES: Films by Los Angeles Artists Selected by Andrew Kim in collaboration with Labor Berlin
Messages can be obscure, and this might be the result of place: Los Angeles. Seemingly, there is no rhyme or reason ... or is there? One must look past the surface. This program represents an array of perspectives from Los Angeles area seers. Employing various formal approaches, these films attempt to see beyond face value. At once, these visions are unified by the spirit of experimentation and independent expression that characterizes the alternative cinema in Los Angeles.
The $100FF welcomes submissions of short films (under 22 minutes) that are finished to Super 8 or 16mm film. We are looking for new (finished after Dec 2014) innovative, thought provoking film from any genre that keeps the practice of celluloid filmmaking alive.
Much critical attention to women’s avant-garde filmmaking of the 1970s and 1980s focused on East coast and European feminist filmmakers, the critique of visual pleasure and the notion of the male gaze in cinema. In San Francisco, a new generation of feminist avant-garde filmmakers were emerging with a very different approach to questions of gender and pleasure in cinema.
