  • 5th Bangkok Experimental Film Festival

    The more things change ?
    The 5th Bangkok Experimental Film Festival, March 2008

    The more things change, the more they stay the same. Governments
    come and go. So do coups. The West keeps drawing its ‘roadmaps’, but
    who’s driving? For some, having no elected government is a terrifying
    state of affairs. For others, it’s just business as usual.

    Change is not impossible. It’s constant. Nothing is permanent.
    Traditional wisdom ? especially in Buddhism ? says that time is
    cyclical, a rhythm of renewal and regeneration. But modernity’s clock
    is ticking. Its history is linear, irreversible, a path towards a
    different future. Will our history be one of progress, or will it be

    Political, social, historical, biological, cosmic? What are the
    cycles that give shape to contemporary life? Can art interrupt them, or
    should it work with them, go along with them?

    The 5th Bangkok Experimental Film Festival is seeking films and
    other screen-based work that explores the rhythms and cycles of
    contemporary life. All genres and styles will be considered, including
    experimental film and video, documentary, art film, animation,
    machinima, etc.

    Experimental film is not just about technical innovation ? it’s
    about new voices and new perspectives. It’s about yesterday and
    tomorrow. It can articulate the furtive connections between the
    ordinary and the extraordinary, the personal and the public.

    BEFF5 is organised by Kick the Machine, Project 304 and the Thai
    Film Foundation, and is also supported by Multimedia Arts Asia Pacific.

    6 Soi Kasemsan 2, Rama 1 Road, Patumwan, Bangkok 10330 Thailand
