Analog Imagination 2 – Selected Works from School Friedl Kubelka for Independent Film
The ‘School Friedl Kubelka for Independent Film’ is a unique place in the world for people of different origins, social backgrounds and ages to learn about the art form of analog film. The school is based on Dante’s quote “WHERE WHAT IS WILLED MUST BE”, meaning that an imagination, a passionate interest in a subject and its realization on analog film material is the main focus. For 17 years, the school has been promoting the artistic practice of filmmakers and offering exchange with acclaimed film artists, thereby shaping an entire generation of analog filmmakers. Made and screened on Super-8, 16-mm and 35-mm film, these works show a cinema of deeply personal and formally independent expression.
The second programme focuses on the sensibilities of the cinematic experience. The film camera pays attention to landscapes, objects, architectures and people; shaping and forming them. Calmness and slowness stand next to intensity and impulsiveness. Time is stretched or condensed, space is observed or traversed. A mediation on personal views of the world through the possibilities of the medium of analog film.
Curated by Philipp Fleischmann (School Friedl Kubelka). This program was made possible with the collaboration with the European Short Film Network.
