A one-day exhibition of three recent projects from Graeme Cole, all co-produced by the Institute, will take place as part of the second Slow Short Film Festival in Mayfield this Saturday. The videos will be shown on a loop in the Memorial Hall opposite the main venue. It is the first chance to see any of these movies in the UK, and includes a special preview version of the previously unseen, ASMR-themed Murmurs across two synchronized screens. Mr Cole will be in attendance at the festival. Aleskandra Niemczyk's Investigations Of A Dog, which Mr Cole highly recommends, will play in the main program. In fact, the whole day-long festival has been very thoughtfully prepared.
Amateri, or The Lost Innocents will play at The Unseen Festival 2018 in Denver, USA this September. The Institute salutes the festival's programming principles and we'd love to hear back from anyone who attends!
NOTES: "Working with new definitions of experimental film, writing, and dance
during a full 30 days of screenings and other performances at multiple
venues from September 1 to September 30, 2018, Counterpath is excited to
present year 2 of The Unseen Festival, exploring notions of the
resistant, the excluded, and the unacknowledged."
Amateri, or The Lost Innocents will play at Station To Station International Film Festival in Tallinn, Estonia next week. The festival looks amazing and you are encouraged to attend even if you find the Institute's work to be generally appalling.
NOTES: "Station To Station is a gathering of like-minded directors from around the world who believe in the cinema as a form of art. 40 independent filmmakers from more than 10 different countries are touring around Europe to screen their work at local cinemas (underground films/ narrative/experimental/documentary). It’s a combination of cinephilia, cultural education, travelling, exploration, networking and fun."
