IWFF Revisited: Experimental Films from the 1970s and 1980
curated by Kat Lawinia Gorska
IWFF revisited delves into the Festival's archive. A selection of films from the 1970-1980s reveals the premises behind the founding of the Festival.

Daniel & Clara's Moving Image Salon is a monthly gathering in London for artists working in the fields of moving image and experimental filmmaking. It is a relaxed and open space for conversation and exchange about contemporary moving image practices, a networking event and critical forum.
When an image is seen it begins to decompose. When a story is told it starts to be a conversation. For Colectivo los Ingrávidos, this gradual disappearance in the process of transmission is a shared space of listening, where poetry becomes an autonomous form of history.
