abstracta The Only Festival of Its’ Kind in the World Today

 

The
abstract cinema exhibition carried out in Liege , Belgium , in 1951,
organised by artist Jean Raine and film-maker Cobra witnessed the
participation of the masters of the cinema of '20s and '30s, Leger,
Duchamp, Dulac, Ernst, Veronesi, Len Lye, Richter, Henry Moore and
others.

Today, after the great success of the 2006 and 2007 editions, Link Campus University of Malta, Zac
Association and The Living Theatre present the third Abstracta
Exhibition with 45 filmmakers from around the world, a forum where the
authors of this cinema, as old as its fictional counterpart, can meet,
confront each other and exchange ideas and opinions.

The members of the International  Jury
are Americo Sbardella, Chairman (Filmstudio 80, Roma), Vanna Fadini
(Link Campus), Pip Chodorov (Revoir, Paris), Gerardo Lo Russo ( Rome -
Academy of Fine Arts –Director), Simonetta Lux ( La Sapienza ,
University of Rome ), Javier Aguirre (Anticine, Madrid ).

 

The definition of Abstract Cinema given in 1926 by Rudolf Kurtz doesn't seem to describe completely enough  this immense conceptual field, however, in substantial agreement with the thesis of Georges Roque (“What Is  Abstract
Art?,” 2004) and, above all, with the 1951 essay by Jean Raine
(“Fondement d'une étude sur le film abstrait”), we have delineated
Abstract Cinema as the one "that does not tell stories".

In this way, we have broadened the scope of the conceptual character of   the abstract.

Another
ambition of the Exhibition is to find a way to enable Abstract Cinema,
which has been plundered by fictional cinema, music videos and
advertisement, to promote itself as an independent and valuable
resource.
