For LSFF 2021’s Platform showcase, we’re excited to screen the hallucinatory, kaleidoscopic works of Colectivo Los Ingrávidos.
Since forming in Tehuacán, Mexico in 2011, the collective have anonymously produced and disseminated over 300 audio-visual works, spanning form from essay films, found-footage reconstruction, feverish shamanistic incantations and charged acts of political resistance.
Both dizzying, kaleidoscopic prayer and a tenacious ode to Black selfhood, London Short Film Festival opens with the first UK presentation of HOWDOYOUSAYYAMINAFRICAN?'s 35-part experimental opera.
The collective, an evolving line up of poets and artists from across the world including composers Kelsey Lu and TV On The Radio's Kyp Malone, abstracts and reimagines opera in any traditional conception.
The Hyattsville Branch Independent Film Series begins 2021 with more virtual film discussions.Filmmaker Chris Lynn offers a feast for the senses in a new audiovisual experience. "River Thoughts" is a lyrical journey through the city of Nanjing, China during the summer months. Modern architecture, urban landscapes, melodies of folk songs, rainy ancient villages, and studies of the Yangtze river are carefully blended together to create a visual and aural tapestry of the city.
The work of Carles Santos has been chosen to open the film season. This homage includes a poetry reading by Vicenç Altaió, a selection of his films made between 1969 and 1979, many of them rarely screened, a previously unseen piece by the North American filmmaker John Logue, two short pieces from the early days of cinema starring the magician Leopoldo Fregoli and a unique concert by the pianist Clara Peya (National Culture Prize 2019), performing a piece composed especially for the occasion in collaboration with the dancer Sílvia Capell.
The fifth edition of BAD VIDEO ART FESTIVAL will take place in Moscow, Russia, in 2021.
Open to artists worldwide. NO fees.
We are looking for videos which are at the intersection of bad art, bad painting and bad cinema. We propose to study extreme forms of video art and single out certain video art works as bad videos or "B-videos". Join us if you are interested in the issues of quality and boundaries of art, or just love video art.
