Screening, talk and socializing
Monday, 10 August 2020, 9 pm
Inner courtyard of Škuc Gallery
The third event of the new programme of screenings and talks on art, video, and film – VideoGarden (VideoDvorišče) in the inner courtyard of the Škuc Gallery brings a selection of experimental short films from previous editions of the FeKK Short Film Festival and is also a pre-event to this year’s festival, which will take place between 17 and 22 August in Ljubljana.
Experimental short films from the Ljubljana Short Film Festival FeKK
Curator: Peter Cerovšek (Kraken Society)
In the last edition of the FeKK Short Film Festival in Ljubljana, experimental films, especially by younger authors, stood out strongly in the domestic competition. The Kraken Society for short film promotion, which organizes the FeKK festival, strives for equal treatment of the experimental film form as well as for the wider field of short film (production, distribution, education, promotion …). At the same time, we believe that an experimental film should certainly not be just a shelter within a short form, and the funding of short films should not be treated as a social aid to authors awaiting a feature film. If we do not adequately support the short film form and authors who think about film outside the established and commercial framework of film production, we can be seriously concerned about the future of Slovenian film.
Regional focus is one of the key missions of FeKK, which is why the program is complemented by two excellent experimental films from Croatia and Serbia, which were part of the FeKK YU competition set in the previous editions of the festival.
