FRI 18 & SAT 19 NOV
Running alongside Encounters Film Festival, this two-day symposium will address issues around production, distribution and understanding of the moving image in an era of mass and intimate media. Internationally acclaimed artists, curators and agencies will discuss their work and the impact of cinema as an industry and a scene of cultural production. For the first time the focus here is in discussing how artists have engaged with the mainstream processes of production in cinema whilst retaining their aesthetic and political edge. It will also explore how this dialogue between cinema, gallery and digital platforms challenge the artist and curator to find new ways to make the staging of vision memorable.
