On the OtherFilm Festival – 23-26 March
Otherfilm Festival is a four-day festival of expanded cinema, installation, sound ecology and Super8 workshops, and music/moving image performances. We start from a point of view that sees ‘cinema’ differently, as something that’s open to re-imagining; something that’s crying out to be liberated from predetermined structures and experiences. This year’s festival features a dazzling array of film and sound performances which expand traditional notions of ‘cinema’, installations which elaborate on the idea of ‘the screen’ and workshops which will introduce participants to ideas of acoustic ecology, as well as shooting, processing, editing and projecting Super8 and 16mm film.
To celebrate the role of Australian filmmakers in the international history of expanded cinema, Otherfilm are delighted to welcome Arthur and Corinne Cantrill, pioneering film artists and authors of the long-running avant-garde film journal, Cantrills’ Filmnotes. Arthur and Corinne will treat Brisbane audiences to a rare expanded cinema performance involving voice and body movement, objects, specially crafted screens and avant-garde film. The curators gratefully acknowledge that the Cantrills’ visit has been made possible with generous support from the Centre For Public Culture and Ideas.
This year’s Otherfilm Festival will be held at the College Gallery, Queensland College of Art, and the Globe Cinema, Fortitude Valley 23-26 March. Opening and Closing Night events and workshops (including materials) are free; Globe performances and screenings will be $6 or $10 for both nights.
Curators: Danni Zuvela, Joel Stern and Sally Golding
