This is our 10th SEASON! AXWFF is looking for experimental shorts made by WOMEN that present their own vision of movie making — we want to see something different and unique — challenge us to rethink what “experimental” means on your terms, outside of any standard form. By “film” we refer to a moving image, made with any media, that presents a transformative action or thought. Work that that has been shot by the artist and is under 20 minutes, has a better chance of being accepted as we have limited screening time.
Designed Reminiscence Vol.3 is the third event in a larger screening series (of the same name) that explores concepts of family, home and memory. These words evoke a different meaning in each of us, however they also remain an intimate reality of our collective consciousness. By focusing on these essential components of the human experience, Designed Reminiscence aims to highlight a common experiential thread while celebrating the unique personal vision of each artist.
In October 2014, Light Cone initiated artist residencies dedicated to video-based post-production of films that fall within the realm of experimental cinema, with the objective of supporting approximately 10 projects per year. The residency is intended to suit the work-flow of experimental filmmakers, therefore eligibility criteria are deliberately kept open. Short, medium, as well as feature-length films are welcome, on the condition that their shooting is completed and their editing is already advanced, with or without the backing of an independent production company. While the project must fit within the field of experimental cinema, no other criteria (length, nationality of filmmaker, etc.) will be imposed.
