A new cooperation network has emerged that brings together 7 festivals from 7 different countries, with the intention of encouraging the circulation of European titles. The section is competitive, itinerant and collaborative, with a selection of 7 chosen films representing all member countries.
One of the most interesting and indispensable living directors, Jan Švankmajer, is the master under the 2023 spotlight. Between repulsion and fascination, the films of the visual artist turned filmmaker are reflections of a subconscious world, where matter takes on a new enchanted form.
With a focus on analogue formats, and curated by Philipp Fleischmann, Analog Imagination brings us deeply personal and formally independent works, from the Friedl Kubelka School for Independent Film, that were made and will be screened in Super 8, 16-mm and 35-mm.
