Other Film Festival in Brisbane

1. OFF at Trash Film Club
2. OtherFilm Festival - 23-26 March 2006 Brisbane

1 - OFF pre-festival LAUNCH PARTY TONIGHT!
7pm Tuesday 21st March: Troubadour

Tantalise your senses with a big night of hand-coloured film, art and
mayhem as Film Club hosts a special teaser program for OFF 06.

Relive the magic of the Wednesday Audience Film handpainted,
scratched, coloured by over 20 people at the OFF 2004 festival, with
live soundtrack by Brisbane noisemakers Impromptulons, performing a
highly rhythmic free-form improvisation based on the "everybody solos,
nobody solos" principle...with extra handmade short film by Gregory

Arthur and Corinne Cantrill will show their beautiful handmade, hand
processed short 16mm films Studies in Image De-Generation (1975),
Floterian (1981), and the very fun funky Milky Way Special (1971).

Finally for shorts - American avant-gardist Paul Sharits' infamous
perception-warping 1966 flicker film Piece Mandala/End War on 16mm

We'll climax with the stunning 1969 Czech surrealist feature Fruit Of
Paradise [by Vera Chytilova, maker of Daisies (a Film Club hit in
2005)], a social satire, a serial killer mystery, a perverted fairy
tale, shot in luscious colour scheme of rotting browns and slimy
greens overlaid with bleeding scarlet, with Zdenek Liska's enigmatic
avant-garde score.

Project Gallery, Queensland College of Art, Southbank.
Cube Galleria 15 Tribune St, Southbank.
Globe Cinema, 226 Brunswick St. Fortitude Valley

Otherfilm sees 'cinema' differently, as something that's open to
re-imagining; crying out to be liberated from industrialised models,
and predetermined structures and experiences. This year's festival
features performances that expand traditional notions of 'cinema',
installations that elaborate on the idea of 'the screen' and workshops
that introduce participants to ideas of acoustic ecology, as well as
shooting, processing, editing and projecting super8 film. Of course,
we've also included fantastic screenings program featuring new film
work and retrospective selections.

In celebration of Australia's contribution to expanded cinema's
international history Otherfilm are delighted to welcome Arthur and
Corinne Cantrill, pioneering film artists and authors of the
long-running avant-garde film journal, Cantrills' Filmnotes. Arthur
and Corinne will perform a selection of expanded cinema pieces
involving voice and body movement, sculptural objects, specially
crafted screens and avant-garde film. The Cantrills' have also curated
a screening program of their own films, a retrospective tracing the
development of their unique approach to filmmaking, spanning five

Curators: Danni Zuvela, Joel Stern and Sally Golding

and interventions...

and extensive oeuvre, selected by the filmmakers especially for
Brisbane audiences. The program will provide a tour through their

works, articulated images, experimental documentary, colour separation
and much much more.


Lloyd Barrett premieres 'Mise en scene' for diegetic and non-diegetic
filmsound, Vanilla (Van Sowerwine and Camilla Hannan) create a
beguiling and bizarre mix of shadow puppetry and noise. Abject Leader
(Joel Stern and Sally Golding) expose their unhinged expanded cinema

and films designed for projection on other specially-made screens.


Botborg perform a "brutal audio-visual barrage, erratic as it is
blinding and deafening. In effect something like a rainbow in a
blender screaming television static." A new 35mm film by Jim Knox,
'cortical landlord after compost'. The Rejuvenation Loops
(Auckland's Eve Gordon and Sam Hamilton) meditate under murky curtains
in droning cyclic scramblings seen through pinhole glimpses of
glimpsing pinhole flares, and finally, a blast for the eyes and ears -
dada-meinhof, Danni Zuvela and Tina Blakeney use projections and
prepared homemade instruments to gnaw at the edges of perception with
fed-back ruminations on the military industrial complex, nature's fury
visited on Bunjalung, and a minimalist exploration of petroleum

re-film and soundscape workshop participants. A screening of Paul
Sharits' 25-minute Razor Blades (1966), which "consciously challenges
our eyes, ears and minds to withstand a barrage of high powered and
often contradictory stimuli". Brisbane's sprawling and unpredictable
psych-heroes The Lost Domain perform a live soundtrack to a special
16mm film print premiere screening of the new work Memorium by
legendary Melbourne avant-garde filmmaker Dirk de Bruyn., Jamie Hume
emerges from Auchenflowers's cabinet Voltaire to perform his
unclassifiable extra-musical nonsense poetics amidst the general
chaos. Audience joins in and enjoys until everyone goes home. OFF

keepintime documentary & performance

Today I'm meant to be packing up my things as it's my last weekend in Auckland. One more week of work here then I'm on holidays for about 5 weeks - 10 days in Sydney (more packing!) then flying back to NZ to drive around the South Island.

I bought a few DVDs last year and haven't had a chance to watch them yet. This one's amazing - they're all having such fun. It's been around for a while and the film has played at many of the film festivals and there's been live gigs in Los Angeles.

Buy a copy!!

Machinima Workshop: Making Films out of Games - Amsterdam

Machinima is making film in the 3D space of a computer game. By treating the game's point of view as a camera, the gamespace becomes the set, the game characters turn into film actors, and the gamer gets to be a director. During this 4-day workshop participants create their own Machinima movie under the guidance of inspired game developers and award-winning machinimamakers. They will take you through all the main technical, creative and cultural aspects of making Machinima. More info about this workshop can be found on
