The 5th Syros Int'l Film Festival is taking place soon, from July 14-19. This year's program is focused on the theme of "Cracking Up," taking this as a jumping-off point to explore the exuberant, manic, and generative potential of making and watching cinema. We are happy to have Martha Colburn, Nusquam Productions (Mariangela Ciccarello & Philip Cartelli), and Peter Fleischmann as Artists in Focus.
In addition to a program of recent and retrospective films, this year SIFF offers events that act as spaces of exception, providing immersive experiences for festival goers. The main event in this series is Gamelan Oneirum, consisting of dusk to dawn film projection, live-score, and expanded cinema performance in the island's former quarry. Performances by: Mike Cooper, Raha Raissnia and Panagiotis Mavridis, Xavier Quérel, Yves Tumor, and Andys Skordis.
