Bastard Film Encounter
Thursday April 25, 2013 (6pm) – Saturday night April 27, 2013 (late night)
something irregular, inferior, spurious, or unusual.
to come upon or meet with, especially unexpectedly: to encounter a new situation.
The Orphan Film Symposium introduced us to films that had been orphaned by their creators or caretakers. We hope to expand on this idea by looking at films that are bastards—ill-conceived or received; embarrassing or beyond the bounds of acceptability; poor in conception or execution; undesirable to those who should be caring for them; proof of something that should have never happened.
The aim of the Bastard Film Encounter is to bring these misbegotten moving images out of the closet and begin to address what these films are, how they are kept and ignored (and if they really should be), if and why they might matter, and what role they might play in archives and in studies of the moving image.
We invite you to join us for a weekend of screening-intensive conversations about bastard films in beautiful Raleigh, North Carolina. Screenings and conversations are the focus of this event. Thematically clustered screenings will be followed by lengthy discussion and q&a sessions.
Confirmed keynote bastard/curator for opening night: Andrew Lampert, Anthology Film Archives. Saturday closing night Cinema Overdrive screening at the independently-owned Colony Theater.
Proposals (no more than one page; a paragraph should suffice) are invited for brief (5 minute—we’re enforcing this!) introductions to films (16mm, Super 8, regular8 projectors will be on hand/videos of any format/or feel free to byop). Please indicate format and length of screening material with your proposal. We hope to make this event less about reading a paper and more about providing some context and then discussing the work afterwards. Send proposals to [email protected] by November 1, 2012. Cheap
Brought to you by your bastardly co-organizers: Skip Elsheimer, Marsha Orgeron, and Dwight Swanson.
You are welcome to submit. MONO NO AWARE is an international exhibition open to any person or group of persons making contemporary art that incorporates Super 8mm, 16mm, 35mm or altered light projections as part of a sculpture, installation, dance, or expanded cinema performance. For example: blending film & theater performance, musicians creating a visual experience for their sound, & experimental filmmakers working with story tellers. Submissions including digital projections will not be considered (i.e. HDcam, DigiBETA, DVcam, DVD) all moving images should be from an analog source.
Part of our purpose in having this gathering is to put an emphasis on the cinematic experience. Film & video have become easily accessible. One can watch content on a website, television, a home projector, or even a cell phone. For some artists and filmmakers those vehicles are copies of the original artwork, each one degraded by its format. We believe there is a magic in seeing the film projected as a print. There is a presence a poet has reading his/her own writing. There is a feeling that resonates in your chest when seeing a band live. For these reasons we are encouraging live music, performance and audio to expand the cinematic experience beyond the screen. We ask that in the spirit of the festival you not video or create copies of your performance. Some participants have gone as far as to destroy the work after its first run at the event.
DEADLINE EXTENDED TO FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 2ND at MIDNIGHT DUE TO SUPERSTORM SANDY
