1st International Festival of Analog Experimental Cinema and A/V Performance - Kinoskop
29-30. November 2019 / Belgrade, Serbia
The call for entries is open
Audio-visual initiative and film lab Kino Pleme is proud to announce the birth of a new niche festival dedicated to the spirit of preserving the exploratory tendencies and experimental ways of working with celluloid in a digital era. Analog experimental film festival “Kinoskop”, the first of its kind in the region, will, in its first year, take place in Belgrade, Serbia, for a two-day run (29th and 30th November) of screenings, expanded film performances, live soundtracks and gallery exhibitions. Previously existing as a selection program at The Unforeseen fest, in its first year is broadening its horizons to encompass a wider variety of works and feature-lenghts, while also integrating live performances which are straddling the line between formal experimentation, poetic freedoms and new takes on historically challenging avant-garde narratives.
Festival is welcoming imaginative works of cinema which trigger strong audio-visual stimuli and puzzling afterthoughts. Several of our open call programs will be curated by veteran experimental film aficionados Nikola Gocic (film writer and critic and visual artist) and Marko Milicevic (film author and founder of the audiovisual initiative Kino Pleme). This year’s program is enriched with programs centered around film music performances and use of analog synthethizers in 5th anniversary program of Live Soundtrack, longest running audio-visual event in Belgrade. First edition will shed light on exciting practices of film performance and expanded cinema, with “Elementary particles” - a post-apocalyptic multi-channel performance merging the worlds of mockumentary, found footage, cinema and animation, as well as projections involving analog and digital equipment. Finally, “Kinoskop” will open its doors to close investigation of alchemical ways of dealing with photochemical practices involving analog photography, by presenting a themed group exhibition which will open its first edition.
