  • Lewis Klahr's Circumstantial Pleasures

    By on

    Light Industry is proud to present the world premiere of Circumstantial Pleasures, a new cycle of films by Lewis Klahr.

    Shaped by soundtracks ranging from girl-group bops to post-punk noise, Klahr’s cut-out animations conjure narratives that are at once cryptically articulated and forcefully emotional. These collage films, scholar Tom Gunning observes, “have always mimed the processes of memory by pulling together the discards of contemporary life (images from ads, textbooks, or comic books, objects such as game pieces, menus, playing cards) into scenarios that seem like some Hollywood film dimly remembered.”

  • Working with analogue film: three workshops for projectionists, filmmakers and children

    By on

    66th International Short Film Festival Oberhausen, 13–18 May 2020

    Analogue film is still very much alive, despite many forecasts to the contrary. It is used as an artistic medium in countless forms across the world, not only at festivals and in the cinemas. As artists are increasingly fascinated by analogue technology, it finds its way into museums and galleries more and more often. But experience with the material and its projection practice is gradually getting lost in the digitized world of cinema. The 66th International Short Film Festival Oberhausen will offer three workshops on analogue film this year, aimed at projectionists and filmmakers working with the material – and not least at children, where it can be a tool to introduce them to the haptic qualities of film.

    Deadline: 

    Sunday, March 1, 2020 (All day)
