Revisiting the heyday of avant-garde filmmaking through a selection of canonical classics and rarely screened gems, this retrospective screening presents works by filmmakers involved in EIFF during the 1960s and ’70s. This programme of shorts comprises artists who either participated directly in the ‘International Forum on Avant-Garde Film’, or whose work was screened between 1976 and 1978 – the crucial years in EIFF’s engagement with avant-garde filmmaking.
The Thursday screening will be introduced by EIFF Black Box Curator Kim Knowles, and LUX Scotland Director Isla Leaver-Yap
