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 Edinburgh International Film Festival during the 1960s and 1970s. 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.

This EIFF screening is organised in association with LUX.
