  • 8mm Experimental Cinema

    8mm Experimental Cinema is a unique program composed of eight short films that exhibit a wide variety of contemporary 8mm practices. The contributing artists use a number of different methods to explore the small format's materialistic and imaginative latitude. This includes direct filmmaking, organic decay, impressionistic shooting methods, and other modes of formal experimentation. The presentation will consist of digital and super 8mm projections.

    Lynne Sachs, Lorenzo Gattorna and Erica Sheu will be present for a brief Q&A following the screening.

  • Xcèntric Cinema: Arthur and Corinne Cantrill. Touching the Earth

    A great deal of the films by filmmakers Arthur and Corinne Cantrill are based on the study of landscape, relating filmic shapes with the shapes of places. Not only does it provide a close-up of the rugged harshness of the Australian landscape, the films in this session - Bouddi, Island Fuse and Ocean Point Lookout – look into the materiality of the actual image and perception, posing us with questions about the nature of cinema and its capacity to create other worlds.

  • Slow Short Film Festival 2019

    The Slow Short Film Festival celebrates works that employ an aesthetic tendency grown conspicuous in the past three decades of world art cinema. The aesthetics of ‘slow cinema’ can be broadly characterised by a combination of long takes and long shots, with a focus on non-professional actors and an emphasis on everyday activities. If contemporary culture is governed by speed and distraction, these films open up time for stillness and contemplation.
