  • OffOff Cinema: Spaces of Cinema. Salon of the Ciné-Amateurs

    Curated by Petra Belç and Kaya Erdinç, the evening explores the works of Yugoslav (amateur) filmmakers who participated in the 1960s Genre Film Festival (GEFF), an experimental arts festival taking place in Zagreb. GEFF was initiated by a series of discussions under the aegis “Antifilm and Us” taking place in the Ciné-club Zagreb. With each new edition, the festival pushed the liberatory and the exploratory potential of cinema to the limit. Everything was allowed, and everything was questioned. The rules had to be broken as the organizers searched for a new vision of the world. Taking cues from the (un)realized performative ideas of the organizers and the structure of GEFF’s programme, Belç and Erdinç will revive its intentions and explore the existing possibilities of their deeply revolutionary and humanist vision.
