Staring Eyes and Undigested Landscapes: In the Focus of the 13th 25 FPS

On Wednesday we start with a film workshop by OJOBOCA. Ojoboca is a story of two people who took the phrases 'filmmaking' and 'film work' very liberally and opted for an archaic method of film production to materialise projections of the present real and imaginary (is there a difference between the two?) worlds as feverish visions of the future of mankind.

Program Diary 4: Hard Labour of Dreams and Hierarchy of Sensuality: 13th 25 FPS Jury’s Choice

The brainchildren and complex relationships of our Jury members towards the film medium have been filtered into three presentations for our traditional late afternoon festival slot.

The waves that chew on the shore like a grinning carnivore denture, luring humanoid microbes in black to their insatiable stomachs. Spots of sunlight pierce through the shrubbery and tree tops of dishevelled nature and form dynamic patterns along the way. Space is a place of refuge and a place for drama/plot.

Program Diary 1: Mutating Rituals and Barking in the Dark: 13th 25 FPS Competition

Ever since it silently flickered in a noisy Parisian café in 1895, subsequently uniting the wet dreams of technological innovators, enthusiastic explorers of the possibilities of the new medium, marketing experts and audience enthralled with the coming attraction of 'reality brought to life', film, among other things, became a testament of the human need to connect, command and communicate with inanimate entities.
