Event description

Description

Bristol Experimental Expanded Film (BEEF) present a series of four workshops that explore the field of experimental film through lectures, seminars, readings and screenings. What is experimental film? In which ways is it relevant today? What is its relationship to artists moving image? With screened examples by key practitioners and with reference to contemporary discourse, these and other questions will be explored. BEEF members and invited guests will deliver lectures and presentations.

WEEK- BY- WEEK OVERVIEW

Session 1: January 10- Experimental film overview

The origins of experimental film and its relationship to the avant-garde and to the underground will be examined. We will consider key areas of experimental film enquiry, such as form, the medium, reflexivity and the importance of process and procedure.

Dr. Vicky Smith will lead this session. Vicky is an experimental animator whose work has screened internationally. She has co-edited a book with Nicky Hamlyn, Experimental & Expanded Animation due early 2018. She is lecturer at The University for the Creative Arts.

Session 2: January 17: Expanded cinema

Expanded cinema is just one of the approaches taken by experimental film-makers as a means through which to resist narrative, stressing instead physicality and presence and creating cinema in which nothing is fixed, projections are intercepted, making and screening are one event, and soundtracks/scores become a live event.

Louisa Fairclough will lead. Louisa is an internationally renowned film installation artist. Her work is represented by Danielle Arnaud. She is lecturer at Oxford Brookes University.

Session 3: January 24: Experimental sound

Experimental film emerged from a visual arts practice and, with a few exceptions, whereby sound is used as image or as a structuring device, enquiry into filmic audio has been under developed. Expanded cinema, for one, has challenged that hierarchy and filmmakers today are collaborating in more active ways with sonic artists.

Shirley Pegna will lead this session. Shirley’s artistic research and practice is concerned with sound as material. Her works enable audiences to perceive the resounding physical properties of our environment. She is part of SARU (Sonic Arts Research Unit) at Oxford Brookes University and has given talks there and at De Montfort University.


Session 4: January 31: Experimental animation

Animation has a special capacity for bridging film and the graphic arts, a facility that is made particularly apparent in the hand-made or camera-less film. Experimental animation typically emphasizes perceptual thresholds, continuity, the single frame and flicker. Much contemporary experimental animation marries such formal enquiry with personal or political concerns.

Vicky Smith will lead.
