aemi presents EFS @ IFI

aemi will be presenting a three-part screening series at the Irish Film Institute curated by Alice Butler and Daniel Fitzpatrick that explores ideas of the collective and collectivism as they relate to contemporary moving image practices. Delighted to announce that the third of these, taking place on May 4th, will consist of works by members Experimental Film Society

From the programme notes:

For the final part of this programme, aemi is proud to present a selection of works by artists and filmmakers from the Experimental Film Society. The programme develops out of a series of conversations with core members of EFS addressing the role of the collective in constructing a productive understanding of what cinema can say and do. There is no single unifying factor connecting the work of individuals associated with the collective but Rouzbeh Rashidi does direct us toward the active possibility of catastrophe and the unknowable. Drawing upon the speculative logic of science fiction, a regular presence in many of the works screening here, cinema is re-articulated as a more heterogeneous space which “can contain all galaxies and forms of life, even ones we can sense but can’t fully comprehend.”

COLLECTIVISM (PART 3) screens at IFI in the evening of May 4th and features a selection of works by members of the Experimental Film Society.
