A little more than two weeks left until the beginning of the 2012 Courtisane Festival (March 21-25, Ghent, Belgium). Now in its eleventh year, the festival keeps a solid programme as ever with their 'Artists in focus' section, with expanded projectionists Sandra Gibson & Luis Recoder (who will perform their new work ‘Aberration Of Light: Dark Chamber Disclosure’ with Olivia Block on the opening night), Ben Russell & Ben Rivers;and Philippe Grandrieux. Each artist will be the protagonist of a series of different events including performances, installations, masterclasses and, of course, screenings. The 'Profiles' section presents monographic programmes dedicated to filmmakers Gabriel Abrantes, Sung-A Yoon, Naomi Uman's Ukrainian Time Machine and the recently deceased George Kuchar's Weather diaries. And last, but not least, the competitive section includes films and videos by Ute Aurand, Bonnie Begusch, Sirah Foighel Brutmann & Eitan Efrat, Mati Diop, Fabian Euresti, Janie Geiser, Beatrice Gibson, Kwon Hayoun, Robert-Jan Lacombe, Laida Lertxundi, Rose Lowder, Gary Mairs, Valérie Massadian, Pavel Medvedev, Nicolás Pereda, Charlotte Pryce, Alina Rudnitskaya, Jani Ruscica and Isabelle Tollenaere. Details on the full programme will be published soon.
