The fifteenth edition of Courtisane Festival (March 23-27, Ghent, Belgium) focuses on the figures of Palestinian filmmaker Michel Khleifi and the Scottish artist, filmmaker and musician Luke Fowler, protagonists of its 'Artists in focus' section. Each filmmaker will be the protagonist of a series of different events including partial retrospectives of their work, talks, and in the case of Fowler, a musical performance with Richard Youngs and Markus Schmickler.
The programme In between times will present "a selection of British films that have documented and reflected on the changing political landscape in a period that stretched from the mid-1970s to the beginning of the 1990s", focusing on the work of Marc Karlin and other filmmakers from the Cinema Action and Poster Collectives. The Selection strand will feature films and videos by Billy Woodberry, Wang Bing, Mary Helena Clark, Jean-Paul Kelly, Robert Beavers, Margaret Honda, Miranda Pennell and Ana Vaz, among many others.
