Contemporary Experimental Films and Video Art from Germany
Short films must be seen!
Goethe Pop Up Seattle is excited to partner with Northwest Film Forum Seattle (NWFF) for two screenings of a short film series of experimental work by young and upcoming artists, presented in its fourth year by AG Kurzfilm and German Films.
Screenings on both August 30 and 31 at 8:30pm!
In January 2019, the program publicly premiered during the 32nd Stuttgart Filmwinter. The 4th edition's jury consisted of Sarah Adam (A WALL IS A SCREEN, European Film Festival dokumentART), Marie-Thérèse Antony (DOK Leipzig - International Leipzig Festival for Documentary and Animated Film), Carsten Aschmann (filmmaker and representative of Film- und Medienbüro Niedersachsen) und Alice Kögel (curator, Staatsgalerie Stuttgart).
The current edition includes the following short films:
THE DIVINE WAY (2018) by Ilaria Di Carlo
BEYOND BEACH (2018) by Clara Winter and Miguel Ferráez
UMBRA (2019) by Florian Fischer and Johannes Krell
THREE CASUALTIES (2018) by Jens Pecho
FOSFENO (2018) by David Gómez Alzate
EINE KNEIPE AUF MALLE (A Bar on Majorca, 2017) by Marian Mayland
While some of the shorts deal with optical phenomena, others explore boundaries and question hierarchies. Together, these daring works display the creative potential of the cinematic short form.
