When: 26. – 28. August 2022

Fee to Participate or Apply: – none
Description Of Opportunity:
For its fifth edition, hungry eyes festival is once again looking for artistic works that situate themselves at the intersection of film, performance and installation art and question film in an interdisciplinary way. This year, hungry eyes festival will again take place in the urban exhibition space KiZ (Kultur im Zentrum) and pose the question of how cinematic works can relate to, as well as challenge that space. A program consisting of several short film series, performative and installation works will explore what constitutes the medium film and how cinematographic elements and working methods can be translated into other media. What can cinematic work mean in the context of installation art and performances if it does not only mean the playing of audiovisual clips? To what extent can also a short film address its own form and play with performative elements? By which means does film become a field of experimentation that expands its own concept and practice in an interdisciplinary approach?
We would like to ask and investigate together to what extent film can set political or social impulses, how films or projections can intervene in real existing space, which presumptions about (cinematic) aesthetics can be turned upside down, or in which relation the repeatable two-dimensional film stands to the performance emerging in the moment and both in turn to the installation work intervening in space and unlimited in time. From a ballet of overhead projectors, an exhibition with flip-books to a silent movie screening with virtual reality glasses – everything is possible.
