Now this is an interesting question. We talk about trying to get
avant-garde films to people not in the usual cities. Here we have a
How can we get some exposure to avant-garde films in southern Portugal?
I suppose the easiest point from which to ship prints is Paris or London.
Or is there any sort of screening group or archive in Lisbon?
In California, Melinda Stone created a tour of various experimental films
which she took to drive-in movie theatres around the state, almost all of
which exist in places that aren't population centers.
What is the feasibility of having a Paris or London based curator tour to
out-of the-way places in Europe? Or set up a traveling package that could
go around the EU? Pip, are you game?
Jorge, you'll have to find a venue in your area though, and publicize it to
get some people to attend. It does require effort & money to get films to
your town. They won't just appear without a venue, but almost anything can
be a venue. Are you willing to take on that part of the equation?
What other stops could such a package make in Portugal? How about Spain?
Now I'm just raising ideas from the balmy climes of southern California, but
how much work would this take?
