8mm Experimental Cinema is a unique program composed of eight short films that exhibit a wide variety of contemporary 8mm practices. The contributing artists use a number of different methods to explore the small format's materialistic and imaginative latitude. This includes direct filmmaking, organic decay, impressionistic shooting methods, and other modes of formal experimentation. The presentation will consist of digital and super 8mm projections.
Lynne Sachs, Lorenzo Gattorna and Erica Sheu will be present for a brief Q&A following the screening.
From 16mm to super 8mm, remixed archival footage to newly shot live action narratives, Red Bank's Indie Street Film Festival is proud to present its first ever program of experimental short films. This highly imaginative and engaging program will explore the nuances of analog nostalgia, choosing film as a medium, and what filmmakers are doing to preserve and archive their works in both a physical and digital sphere.
