While the traditional media for moving images – movie theaters and TV – are losing their dominant role, filmmaking and the language of cinema migrate to other media that often aren’t screens.
This symposium gathers filmmakers, artists, designers and activists who reframe cinema as interventions into public space through visual, sound and mobile media, as tactical transmedia narratives, and as filmmaking rooted in the avant-garde expanded cinema tradition.
What does the language of cinema contribute to these other media, and which opportunities do these media conversely offer for the future practice of filmmaking?
Moderators: Simon Pummell, Florian Cramer & Edwin Carels
