Hi Frameworkers,
Forgot to send TIE's e-update last month to the Frameworks list. So here it is.

Below you will find information regarding the The International Experimental Cinema Exposition's 5-Day Festival (October 11-15, 2006), a new (and final) deadline for film submissions, upcoming calendar of events and other news.

TIE, The International Experimental Cinema Exposition
Thorsten Fleisch, member of TIE's Board of Artistic Directors, has a created a stunning new program entitled "Super-8 Films of a Violent Nature", plus a new expanded cinema piece for the TIE 5-Day Festival, October 11-15, 2006. Details at a later date.

**************New (Final) Submission Deadline**************
TIE has received requests to extend the submission deadline from several cherished filmmakers that are currently putting forth the finishing touches on their prints. We would like to extend this opportunity to all filmmakers to submit their work by the new and FINAL deadline of September 1, 2006. The submission package must actually be received by the film entry committee by September 1.

TIE, The International Experimental Cinema Exposition (October 11-15, 2006)
Pablo Marin is a filmmaker and critic living in Buenos Aires, Argentina. His new 35mm film, "Blocking" (left), will be making its world premier at TIE in October.

"Made strictly by opposing AMIA's "Disaster Recovery for Films in Flooded Areas" this film was kept under water until its emulsion started to melt, then removed, tightened up and finally dried directly by the sun. The result is what you see, a film trailer, reborn from its very same ashes, in which the few small portions of "images" that remain are overcome by the freed, colorful chemicals. "Blocking" is, thus, an homage to all the footage lost by the unpredictable dangers of nature and, at the same time, a true song to the beauty in destruction."
VIP Pass
TIE is offering a limited number of VIP Passes for "The International Experimental Cinema Exposition - 2006", October 11-15.

 The most effective way to preserve film is to show it. We hope to see you at The International Experimental Cinema Exposition.
