66th International Short Film Festival Oberhausen, 13–18 May 2020
Analogue film is still very much alive, despite many forecasts to the contrary. It is used as an artistic medium in countless forms across the world, not only at festivals and in the cinemas. As artists are increasingly fascinated by analogue technology, it finds its way into museums and galleries more and more often. But experience with the material and its projection practice is gradually getting lost in the digitized world of cinema. The 66th International Short Film Festival Oberhausen will offer three workshops on analogue film this year, aimed at projectionists and filmmakers working with the material – and not least at children, where it can be a tool to introduce them to the haptic qualities of film.
After shows in Los Angeles (Echo Park), Winnipeg (WNDX Festival) and Toronto (Pleasure Dome) the 20th Anniversary Film Farm celebrations journey to the U.K., presented by Lux Moving Image of London! The Film Farm Lux 20th Show, curated and presented by Artistic Director and founder Philip Hoffman, includes early and recent films (16mm and digital) made at the Film Farm between 1994 and 2014.
