The selections for Binghamton University's 2018 Student Experimental Film Festival program has been announced and of the 19 films selected for the festival, 6 of them were made by UB Media Study students! The festival takes place Friday, Nov. 16th-17th, 2018.
This programme of works by female filmmakers made in response to Brakhage will be introduced by two presentations. Kalpana Subramanian will talk about her recent films and research — which uses a transcultural and interdisciplinary lens to examine Brakhage’s radical experimentations with light and its relationship with embodiment and breath — while Ara Osterweil, author of the recent study Flesh Cinema: The Corporeal Turn in American Avant-Garde Film, will further discuss the charged and sometimes fraught friendship between Brakhage and Carolee Schneemann.
The Buffalo International Film Festival 2018 is just around the corner – Thursday, October 4 – 8. Just another cultural offering this city has to offer, right? But did you know that the festival ABOUNDS WITH THE WORK OF UB MEDIA STUDY STUDENTS AND ALUMS??
