Edit Film Culture! Festival

What is the significance of writing about film, whether in print or online, to the constitution of artistic communities today? Talks by scholars and filmmakers drew out the relevance of Film Culture and the constellation of interdisciplinary arts events and institutions within its orbit for thinking about the development of contemporary film cultures in various localities. Harun Farocki Institut has presented a so far unpublished issue of the magazine Filmkritik on the occasion of the festival.

In an opening night concert, Gina D'Orio and Susanne Sachsse with Robin Behling and Anton Garber edited selected texts from Film Culture magazine in a mad, moody music performance. There also was a rare concert featuring a solo set by Sonic Youth‘s Thurston Moore, followed by an 11-piece band of Jonas Mekas's friends and longtime collaborators who provided a live soundtrack to Mekas's most recent feature film OUTTAKES FROM THE LIFE OF A HAPPY MAN. Mekas himself joined via video projection.

With Ale Bachlechner, Erika Balsom, Didi Cheeka, Cinema Poetica, Mónica Delgado, desistfilm, Gina D'Orio, Suliman Mohamed Ibrahim Elnour, Tamer El Said, Corry Elyda, Vinzenz Hediger, Shai Heredia, Anne König, Anuj Malhotra, Kalani Michell, Abhishek Nilamber, Bert Rebhandl, Susanne Sachsse, Juan A.
