Experimental Film : Talk

WHEN : 16th Nov,5.30pm – 8:00pm
WHERE : MAAP SPACE, 111 Constance St, Fortitude Valley

Viewed together, Patty Chang & David Kelley’s video installation and the BEFF 6 program make a perfect study of the complicated position of experimental film and video art in 2012. Presenting a cross-section of expanded cinema, video art and hand-made film, they demonstrate the contested roles of the filmmaker-as-artist and the artist-as-filmmaker presently playing out in the cinema and the art museum.

Joel Stern (OtherFilm) leads an open discussion of past and present transgressions of the moving image in Australia and Asia. Where is experimental film at in 2012? And what is its relation to video art?
