It is with a heavy heart that, due to the corona pandemic and following government guidelines, we must announce the postponement of the fourth edition of FRACTO - Experimental Film Encounter from May to September 2020.
However, on a lighter note, we have extended the deadline for submissions to the 1st of July!
Call out for films and videos submissions for the upcoming 22nd edition of Paris Festival for Different and Experimental Cinemas (October 7-18, 2020). The festival is organised by Collectif Jeune Cinéma every year. CJC - Collectif Jeune Cinéma - was founded in 1971 following the New York Filmmakers's Cooperative footsteps. CJC is a cooperative for distribution with the aim to promote visual and cinematic experimental practices.
In compliance with the health measures relating to the COVID-19 epidemic, the offices of the Collectif Jeune Cinéma have been closed since Monday, March 16, 2020, for an indefinite period, which we hope will be as short as possible.
The Bogotá Experimental Film Festival is in the releasing process of a large part of its Official Selections 2015-2019 catalog, for everyone that wants to admire experimental cinema at home, during these weird times of isolation and quarantine.
Thanks to the artists from all around the world, who have decided to share their artworks through us.
As we come to terms with a health crisis that might mean long-term closures for New York City cinemas, we must meet the challenges ahead with mutual aid and solidarity. These closures have been necessary steps in the effort to slow the spread of COVID-19, but many hourly workers will be paying an immediate price for the well-being of our city.
IWFF Revisited: Experimental Films from the 1970s and 1980
curated by Kat Lawinia Gorska
IWFF revisited delves into the Festival's archive. A selection of films from the 1970-1980s reveals the premises behind the founding of the Festival. In its early years the Festival was marked by formative convictions and ideas. What types were they? What was to be shown? Why? And who was supposed to see it all?
Daniel & Clara's Moving Image Salon is a monthly gathering in London for artists working in the fields of moving image and experimental filmmaking. It is a relaxed and open space for conversation and exchange about contemporary moving image practices, a networking event and critical forum.
