A four week course in artists and experimental filmmaking led by Maximilian Le Cain and Aoife Desmond.
Materialist film / parafiction / performance / expanded cinema.
These four sessions exploring artists and experimental filmmaking are designed to immerse and inspire both experienced artists/filmmakers and beginners alike. Established practitioners Le Cain and Desmond will present contrasting perspectives and insights on each theme to stimulate a discursive mood of creative investigation. Students/peers/participants are expected to be actively engaged through sharing examples of their own work and research. This sharing will build towards the final session where everyone participates in a kaleidoscopic improvised expanded cinema style ‘FilmJam’. This short and intense course is designed to both challenge and excite with a combination of critical investigation and playfulness.
Maximilian Le Cain is a Cork-based experimental filmmaker and writer. He often makes films with Vicky Langan and is affiliated with Experimental Film Society. maximilianlecain.com experimentalfilmsociety.com
