The Experiment Continues
If you enjoyed Experiments in Cinema v5.1—Basement Films and UNM Department of Cinematic Arts’ annual celebration of international experimental film—then fear not. Experiments in Cinema v6.3 (not really clear on the numbering system myself) is coming up in April 2011. It’ll be another five days’ worth of film screenings, lectures, workshops and more. Of course, if you’re a filmmaker interested in getting your very own genre-busting, media-bending work into next year’s fest, you need to act quickly. All entries must be postmarked by Dec. 1. To get details on the festival or to download an application for submission, log on to experimentsincinema.com.
And on a side note to all you holiday shoppers, DVDs from Experiments in Cinema v4.2 and v5.1 are now available on eBay for 20 bucks a pop. Each one is a double-disc set filled with mind-expanding, eyeball-spinning goodness. Search for eBay seller spartan1950 to get the “buy it now” hookup.
