EFS Screening at Ormston House, Limerick
Experimental Film Society HQ issued the following announcement this evening:
Experimental Film Society Screening Tuesday 26 March, 7.30pm Admission Free
ORMSTON HOUSE 9-10 Patrick Street, Limerick, Ireland
Ormston House, Limerick, will be presenting a programme of work by the international filmmaking group Experimental Film Society. Founded in Iran but now run from Ireland, EFS is an independent, not-for-profit entity that archives and promotes films and videos by more than a dozen filmmakers scattered across the globe; filmmakers whose works are distinguished by an uncompromising devotion to personal, experimental cinema.
There are no strictly defined rules governing EFS films, but most of them share some general characteristics: formally adventurous works made in complete creative freedom, often on very low budgets; an exploratory, non-script-based approach to filmmaking; abstract plots favouring the poetic immediacy of the interaction of sound and image over traditional storytelling: exploring the limits of cinema itself. EFS was founded and is run by Dublin-based Iranian filmmaker Rouzbeh Rashidi.
Rouzbeh Rashidi - shown above in Homo Sapiens Project (29) - and Maximilian Le Cain will be attending and be available for discussion with the audience afterwards.
