Dear Frameworkers
Proud to announce twelve screenings of rarely seen swiss avant-garde films in India. On the occasion of the restoration of 14 experimental films from the long forgotten history of Swiss avant-garde film through the project "Der Künstlerische Film in der Schweiz 1950-1988 / Art Films in Switzerland 1950-1988" (see http://ipf.zhdk.ch/english/research/current-research-projects/art-films-in-switzerland-1950-1988-2) four programmes with 18 avant-garde films will tour through the four cities of New Delhi, Ahmedabad, Calcutta, and Mumbai!

If anyone happens to be in the area, you are welcome to join in in these apparently free of cost projections. See for local newspapers for more news or contact me offline for further information. Our current knowledge of the venues and times of our screenings are rather vestigial, but it should be able to reach us via email to receive more precise directions.

If you happen to be a curator / if you organise screenings and are interested in screening these (and other) programmes, you can contact me as well.

Cheers to all,
