After an homage to Peter Tscherkassky and Eve Heller, curated by Atelier Impopulaire for the last edition, Fuori Formato, the short film section of Filmmaker Festival (Milan), continues its exploration of Austrian Avant-garde under the guide of young experimental film talent Johann Lurf, who will be in Milan as artist in focus and guest curator. A selection of his films dedicated to the analysis of spaces and architectures will be presented in a personal programme and then discussed with the artist in a masterclass.

A to A: Perspectives on Austrian Avant-garde is a three-part programme focusing mainly (with few significant exceptions) on the last two decades and on younger generations: not a comprehensive mapping, but a personal voyage through essential works and minor episodes in the ever-lively scene of Austrian experimental cinema. Included there is a special micro-programme of experimental film trailers, with two foreign special guests (Ken Jacobs and James Benning’s trailers for the Viennale) and the world premiere of Norbert Pfaffenbichler’s Short Film, consisting of only four frames.

Curated by Tommaso Isabella and Johann Lurf
