Leading UK-based Experimental Film Festival, Alchemy Film and Moving Image Festival, has announced the programme for its 11th edition which will run from 29 April - 3 May 2021.
Building on the success of last year's online event which expanded both its audience and geographic reach, Alchemy 11 will also be presented as a live streamed event with screening, Q&As, live events and more.
Alchemy 11 will feature over 170 films and artworks, including over 100 Premieres. It will showcase works by some of the world’s leading exponents of film and the moving image and give a platform to Borders-based artists, as well as local groups who have worked with Film Town, Alchemy's community filmmaking project. All video content will be captioned for d/Deaf audiences, with a selection of the programme also available with audio description for blind and partially sighted audiences.
Running alongside the timetabled screenings will be a series of pieces presented under the Focus banner which will be available to view-on-demand throughout the festival. Artists featured in the Focus strand include Baff Akoto (Ghana/UK), Dagie Brundert (Germany), Emily Jacir (Palestine/USA), Richard Fung (Trinidad/China/Canada), belit sağ (Turkey/Netherlands), and Borders- and D&G-based artists Jason Moyes, Mark Lyken, poet Jules Horne, photographer Douglas McBride, visual artist Sukjin Kim.
