  • 18th Paris Festival for Different and Experimental Cinemas

    By on

    The 18th edition of the Paris Festival for Different and Experimental Cinemas presents six competitive programs and a series of peripheral events around the theme "Humor & Facéties".The surrealists used to find their daily inspiration in cinema, although not in the serious productions, but more in burlesque films or in extravagant serials. This explains the strong presence of the extraordinary and rip-roaring dimensions in avant-garde films. Many experimental filmmakers after them kept and nourished this taste for humour. For this year's edition, we invite our audience to discover this domain -the less austere of the vast world of creation- through different focus events.

    Dates: 

    Tuesday, October 4, 2016 (All day) to Sunday, October 16, 2016 (All day)
  • II Dobra - International Experimental Film Festival

    By on

    Dobra claims itself as a space of resistance which  states itself as a space of resistance that wants to share with the audience a micro-perception, going in the opposite direction of the cliches that large corporate media and mass communication logic impose. Vanishing lines to what Peter Pál Pelbart calls beast life, and what we might call the beast perception. To welcome these smaller perceptions that turn aside the pre-set movements that reject any desire to completeness or whole orders.

    Thursday, September 1, 2016 (All day) to Sunday, September 4, 2016 (All day)

    Venue: 

    Cinemateca do Rio de Janeiro - Rio de Janeiro, Brasil
  • AVANT 2016 - So Is This

    By on

    The 13th edition of AVANT is a tribute to Michael Snow’s film So Is This. A film that consists only of text and challenges the idea that film, or language, refers to a surrounding world. This, in So Is This is simply the event that unfolds when the film takes place.

    Besides Michael Snow (Canada) the filmmakers Els van Riel (Belgium), Esther Urlus (Netherlands) and Elke Groen (Austria) are invited. All three deals with film as an event and with the material specificity of film; van Riel with time, Urlus with the materiality of film colour, and Groen with the actual memory of the film material.

    Friday, September 23, 2016 (All day) to Saturday, September 24, 2016 (All day)
