Please join us for the grand re-opening of LaborBerlin! After the success of our crowdfunding campaign FILM AIN’T DEAD we want to share with you the fruit of our collective efforts. We will also introduce our collaborative project REMI with films by our partner labs Filmwerkplaats (NL) and Mire (FR). Have some food and drinks, take a tour, have a look at our wonderful new facilities, watch films or just hang out with us and have a good time!
In the early 1970s, Dutch filmmaker Barbara Meter co-founded the Electric Cinema, to present and produce independent and avant-garde film. She made fiction films, political documentaries, and then moved to avant-garde film, pushing the medium forward with her unique way of repurposing documents and audio recordings, and with an innovative, masterful application of optical printing techniques. Meter manipulates the images and reworks found sounds to find and create a personal expressive mode. With film prints lovingly restored by the EYE Filmmuseum in Amsterdam, FOUND SOUNDS is the first comprehensive retrospective of Barbara Meter’s avant-garde films in the United States.
Organized and introduced by guest curator Mónica Savirón.
We are glad to announce that we are now accepting submissions for the next edition of Les Inattendus Film Festival, that will take place from February 9th to 17th 2018 in Lyon, FRANCE.
For this 11th edition, the ambition remains the same : to explore the richness and diversity of cinematic works in showing fiercely singular, challenging and aesthetically audacious films that radically contrast with conventional filmmaking standards.
Film Panic Presents! is a monthly showcase of contemporary underground and experimental films, bringing to Porto a range of unique films, cinematic visions and explorations of bold filmmakers who are challenging and expanding the art of cinema today. These sessions are presented by Film Panic (Daniel Fawcett & Clara Pais) in association with Shortcutz Porto, and take place at Auditório Biblioteca Municipal Almeida Garrett, with the support of Câmara Municipal do Porto.
In this session we are delighted to present three programmes of contemporary experimental and underground cinema.
The artist, musician and composer Thanos Chrysakis was born in Athens. He lived for sixteen years in London until he moved to Belarus in 2015. He is a trained musician who performs his music internationally in festivals, in concert halls and alternative places. He always had a strong connection with images and thus has created his own videos, or has found people for sound/image collaborations. Since 2007 he operates the record-label 'Aural Terrains' focusing in electroacoustics, composed and improvised music.
