FRACTO is an annual Experimental Film Encounter inviting artists and filmmakers to present works that explore today's perceptual landscape and interrogate its set of technological configurations. The second edition will be held at ACUD MACHT NEU Cinema & Studio in Berlin from the 24th to the 27th of May 2018, with four days of screenings, artist talks and workshops. The official selection curated by Giuseppe Boccassini and Tommaso Isabella will be presented in a series of 15 programmes presenting 70 international titles of recent artist moving image works and experimental films,  including 11 World premières, 17 European premières and 30 German premières.

Cristina Baldacci, Federico Rossin, Karianne Fiorini and Gianmarco Torri are the guest curators of this second edition contributing three special programmes.

ICI Berlin fellow Cristina Baldacci invites artists Maria Iorio and Raphaël Cuomo to discuss their practice and present their film APPUNTI DEL PASSAGGIO (2014-16). Reconstructing forgotten episodes related to migration from Italy to Switzerland in the 1960s, the film introduces a minor perspective into the ways in which the historical phenomenon of migration from southern to northern Europe is represented today, testing the validity of History and exposing it to the first-hand accounts of those who actually made the passage.

Independent film curator Federico Rossin selects titles from Paris distributor Light Cone for a programme dedicated to analogue and digital DISSOLUTION(S) with works by Tomonari Nishikawa, Paul Sharits, Kirk Tougas and Jacques Perconte: "Disintegrations and repetitions in search of a possible incarnation of the cinematic (glorious) body. A program of four films as a ritual sacrifice of the photochemical matter and a cupio dissolvi of the digital palette."

Karianne Fiorini and Gianmarco Torri present RE-FRAMING THE HOME MOVIE, a workshop that will introduce the audience to home movies and amateur films as both specific archival documents in the field of film heritage and creative source material for filmmakers and artists. The workshop will examine their peculiar characteristics (in terms of history, film formats and aesthetics) and address specific issues related to their preservation and use in new works of art.
