Festival - Engauge Experimental Film Festival 2021

These films build on an early image or idea, often conjuring a meditative state.

In this program:
Facets of pandemic obsessions stitched together.

(Dawn George, Canada, 2021, 5 min)

Self Portrait with Bag
A cameraless portrait of the artist. Super 8mm cartridges placed inside a black cotton bag, the film advanced via a hand crank. The tiny gaps in the fabric weave make for dozens (hundreds? thousands?) of tiny pinhole lenses.

(Dianna Barrie, Australia, 2020, 7 min)

eternity on a loop
An employee of God takes a break from heavens bureaucracy and spends some time on Earth.

(Isabela Costa, Brazil, 2021, 12 min, in English)

600 Moons
A young woman takes a walk in the woods and slips into another realm, wherein she glimpses her future self.

(Cindy Stillwell, US, 2020, 8 min)

Slow Volumes
A motion study of passing time. Shot using a hand-built camera, 35mm film is drawn past a thin vertical aperture, organizing the image temporally. Familiar objects dissolve into abstract lines unless in motion past the lens, their shape determined not by their physical features but in the speed of their movement.

(Mike Gibisser, US, 2019, 5 min)

Beneath The Mead: cigar.lend.shave
A speculative portrait of a place in North Bristol called Pen Park Hole. The film channels the intense curiosity to discover what lies beneath the land we occupy, questioning what is known about this specific site as well as ideas of locality and home.

(Laura Phillips, UK, 2020, 19 min)

Study for a Film: Origins or Seeds on the Margin
Inspired by a film by the artists grandfather, this film mediates between the historical limitations for bourgeoisie women (roses among roses) and the contemporary realities of confinement.

(Rrose Present, Spain, 2021, 3 min)

3 Dreams of Horses
A triptych in which the figure of the horse becomes a medium for meditation on its various incarnations as symbol, domesticated animal for human domination, and its abstract power as spirit.

(Mike Hoolboom, Canada, 2018, 6 min, in English)

Ticketing, concessions, cinemas, restrooms, and our public edit lab are located on Northwest Film Forum's ground floor, which is wheelchair accessible. We have a limited number of assistive listening devices available for programs hosted in our larger theater, Cinema 1. These devices are maintained by the Technical Director, and can be requested at the ticketing and concessions counter. The Forum does NOT have assistive devices for the visually impaired, and is not (yet) a scent-free venue. Our commitment to increasing access for our audiences is ongoing, and we welcome all public input on the subject! If you have additional specific questions about accessibility at our venue, please contact our Executive Director Vivian Hua at vivian@nwfilmforum.org
