FFDD21: POP UP_PHOTOFILM
In essence, photofilms are films that consist of non-moving photographs, which question or challenge our viewing habits and permit us to consider cinema anew. The programme is screening twelve short photofilms on the festival’s activism theme that were made between 1965 and 2017. The film flyer wants to intervene politically, get involved, inform and scandalise. In the most succinct way.
The Pop Up_Photofilm Flyer is being accompanied by a photofilm masterclass running from 14 to 15 July. Katharina Duve and Timo Schierhorn from Hamburg are attending the event personally, while Janie Geiser will be connected live from Los Angeles. They are giving us insights into performative presentations and projections of current works as an experimental lab.
