SUPERLUX Workshop: Page to Picture! Screenwriting for Artists at GFF17

Posted on January 21st, 2017 by LUX Scotland

Friday 24 Feb – Saturday 25 Feb, 11am–5pm
Seminar Room, Glasgow School of Art, Reid Building
Free for SUPERLUX members, ticketed via Eventbrite

Anja Kirschner will introduce approaches to screenwriting outside of conventional formats and how to tailor them for your own moving image projects. The focus will be on expanded narrative structures, adaptation and appropriation, using examples from her own work as well as that of other artists, directors and writers, including Yvonne Rainer, Emily Wardill, Pier Paolo Pasolini, Alain Robbe-Grillet and Kathy Acker.

This practical and theoretical workshop is designed for artists working with the moving image and experimental filmmakers who want to develop screenwriting as an integral part of their practice.

Anja Kirschner is an artist whose films draw on factual, literary and pop-cultural sources and deal with materiality, digitality and narrativity and their share in the (de)formation of subjectivities and political agency. She is the recipient of the 2011 Jarman Award and her films have been widely exhibited and screened internationally, including at Secession, Neuer Berliner Kunstverein, Tate Modern, the Berlinale, the BFI London Film Festival and the International Short Film Festival Oberhausen.

Presented by LUX Scotland as part of the programme for SUPERLUX, LUX Scotland’s membership scheme. SUPERLUX is free and easy to join, simply sign up now to become a member.

CCA Clubroom, CCA Glasgow

Drawing on her new feature film Moderation (2016), Anja Kirschner will give an insider’s account of the different stages of making an artists’ film, from inception through to development, realisation and distribution. She will focus on her research into horror cinema from cold-war Europe, Infitah-era Egypt and Metapolitefsi Greece, which refused to naturalistically represent lived experience or to sublimate it by recourse to the irrational.
