I’m pleased to say that the program for the premiere of Lateral Movement: Art & the Moving Image at the 2009 BigPond Adelaide Film Festival is rapidly taking shape. Emma Sterling and I (Dan Monceaux) are responsible for the event’s PR and the curation of the ‘New Works’ screening, which will take place on February 23rd at the Mercury Cinema.
Since many of the films were sourced through the fantastic video portal website Vimeo we have been able to receive most of the films’ screening versions digitally. As such we are adding stills from the films to our slideshow progressively. So far we have confirmed works from Australia, the USA, Canada, the UK, Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland, Turkey and France.
The event’s webpage will be updated on Monday with the full program for the event.
After several months of planning, exploring and collating, it’s just about ready… the first incarnation of Lateral Movement: Art & the Moving Image. Lovingly and personally crafted by three dedicated Adelaide screen-culture vultures, Dan Monceaux, Emma Sterling and Toby Bramwell, we hope this to become Adelaide’s premiere calendar event for the appreciation, discussion and enjoyment of international moving image artwork.
Co-presented by the BigPond Adelaide Film Festival and the Media Resource Centre, the event will take place over two nights in Adelaide, South Australia at our dearly beloved Mercury Cinema. Post War films screen on Saturday, February 21 and New Works screen on Monday, February 23. Entry to these sessions is $12/10, and doors open at 8pm both nights. Check out the trailer below…
The trailer features excerpts from the ‘New Works’ program, including pieces by J. Van der Made (Holland), James McGilchrist (Australia), Michael Robinson (USA), Peter William Holden (Germany) and Adam Paradis (USA).
