Seminar: What can art(ist) films do differently?
Welcome to a practical discussion about art film!
This hands-on seminar with artist Benj Gerdes examines the possibilities today for films which might fall outside the mainstream. What different approaches to form can we learn from the “art film” now and how can an “artist film” suggest new ways of producing sounds and images outside of the standard industry models?
Part lecture, part Show and Tell, participants are welcome to contribute with their own work and engage in a discussion about what it is that defines art film.
Benj Gerdes is an artist and film maker from New York, now residing in Gothenburg. His work has been exhibited at Centre Pompidou in Paris, Rotterdam Film Festival and Tate Modern in London.
