Nomadica – experimental and artist cinema network and LABA Libera Accademia di Belle Arti in Brescia are launching a new curatorial project with a pedagogy that aims to identify new and stronger links between the arts and teaching and between cultural dissemination and collective reflection.
Films by makers from different backgrounds, countries, homelands and nations. Films which assert identity and presence in the face of—and regardless of—colonial histories and outdated traditions of anthropology and ethnography. Films which make space for poetry, for beauty, for movement between cosmological and visceral worlds, sometimes blurring the lines between both. These filmmakers claim what was always theirs and celebrate what was never lost.

Call for entries for the sixth edition of the International Video Art Festival Over the Real. The Festival presents the most significant lines of research emerged in recent years in the international audiovisual arts. Over The Real aims to create an opportunity for meeting and promotion for artists who work in the field of video art which favors visibility and contacts with the public, with curators, art critics and cultural institutions.
Building on the success of last year's online event which expanded both its audience and geographic reach, Alchemy 11 will also be presented as a live streamed event with screening, Q&As, live events and more.

Their approaches to found footage, at once likeminded and singular, have served Christoph Girardet and Matthias Müller well since 1999, during which time the two of them have collaborated on nearly thirty films and photographic works. Varied metaphors and modes of inquiry have been used to analyze their oeuvre: to some, Girardet and Müller provide a “suggestive continuum,” exposing the patterns of light and darkness, absence and presence, by which cinema operates; to others, the filmmakers dissect the body of film history and of the cinematic apparatus, suggesting the moving image as a corporeal grouping of skin, guts, brains, and bones to pick apart.
Harkat is back with the fifth edition of the 16mm film festival, a festival exclusively screenings works done on celluloid film. We welcome all kinds of films from a diverse range of contexts, as long as they are made on celluloid film. That the visuals speak to the medium is what we look for.
Repeats every week 1 times. Also includes Sat Aug 14 2021.
