    What is experimental?
    FLEX doesn’t want to know in advance what experimental means. We’re interested in work that challenges generic designations (including the traditional “avant-garde” or “underground” ones). Work may also draw on documentary, narrative, animation or any other tradition – or no tradition at all. So, what is experimental? We’re hoping to be surprised by your answer.
