Film Screenings: Spring 2015

The film programme for the first half of 2015 revolves around the idea of COLLECTIVE MAKING. In its essence the art of film is a collective practice often dependable on the collaborative effort of a number of specialists from script writers to camera crew and actors. Most often the director is the person that supervises the creative process, supplies the overall artistic vision and gives the film its signature, but it is the entire crew that makes the realization of the production possible. The focus on the inherent element of COLLECTIVE MAKING associated with the medium is combined with a number of stories where the idea or practices of the collective plays an important part. This selection aims at illuminating how the theme is central to avant-garde, documentary as well as popular fiction films.
