The deadline for entries to the Lucca Film Festival’s international competition is at the end of this month - 30 July 2007.
The Lucca Film Festival which takes place for the third time this year (28 September- 6 October 2007) is an annual celebration of independent and experimental film & video featuring 9 days of screenings, lectures, conferences and performances.
After having hosted greats like Kenneth Anger and Stephen Dwoskin in 2006, this year we are presenting a retrospective of Canadian filmmaker, painter, sculptor and musician Michael Snow; together with a retrospective of the cinema of French artist and writer and founding member of Situationist International Guy Debord. We are also presenting a retrospective and exhibition of works by the New York film-maker and Intermedia pioneer Aldo Tambellini; and a homage to the 1967-founded Italian Cooperative of Independent Cinema. Last but not least, we will also screen a series of films that have been central to the critical activity of 'Cinema & Film', a revue which played a ground-breaking role in the history of film and film criticism in Italy.
Special events include a twin-screen video performance by Steven Ball and Martin Blazicek, screenings of a new documentary on Kenneth Anger by Antoine Barraud, “River of Anger”, shot last year in Lucca, as well as new videos by the current Lucca Film Festival Artist-in-Residence Riccardo Iacono.
For the international competition programme we are looking for independent and avant-garde artist’s films and videos completed in the last two years.
So, if you are a film or video maker, please send your tapes or DVD’s of recent works for preview and consideration to the address below.
