The Slow Film Festival's experimental programme explores duration and landscape at the margins of society. Held in the village of Mayfield, the festival acts as a retreat from the city. There will be an exhibition of Scott Barley's work, a special screening of Babette Mangolte's 'The Sky on Location', a programme of shorts and a curated series of features. There will be slow food in abundance and a Walking Cinema Seminar.
Saturday, October 19, 2019 (All day) to Sunday, October 20, 2019 (All day)
The Slow Short Film Festival celebrates work engaging with a stylistic tendency grown conspicuous in the past three decades of world art cinema. Very broadly this style consists of long takes, long shots, a focus on non-professional actors, and an emphasis on everyday activities deemed surplus to mainstream storytelling. Leading figures include Béla Tarr, Tsai Ming-Liang, Apichatpong Weerasethakul, Abbas Kiarostami, Lav Diaz, Pedro Costa and Ben Rivers.
