Festival - Engauge Experimental Film Festival 2021

Why shoot film? These filmmakers celebrate the unique characteristics of the medium, in a range of techniques and styles.

In this program:
SEA 404
Taking inspiration from Japanese photographer Hiroshi Sugimoto and French philosopher Jean Baudrillard, SEA 404 questions the current fashion where people learn everything in the computer world.

(Cherlyn Hsing-hsin Liu, US, 2019, 3 min)

Wood and Metal Bars
A meditative journey through colour, form and sound. This direct animation music video was created for Toronto chamber music composer Frank Horvat. The musical composition is performed by Canadian percussionist Beverley Johnston.

(Richard Reeves, Canada, 2021, 11 min)

The cinema is a machine. Kopierwerk testifies to that, lets itself be carried by industrial rhythms, and in doing so, negotiates the analogue era, whose end meant also new beginnings, creative deviations: as complement to digital mass culture, taking place before our eyes is a movement largely freed from the pressure to generate a profit, a niche revolution of sorts in analogue media.

(Stefanie Weberhofer, Germany, 2020, 7 min)

Wash Day
An intimate exploration into how private, domestic acts such as washing your hair, or putting on makeup become a significant re-acquaintance with the body, before and after navigating the politics of ones outward appearance.

(Kourtney Jackson, Canada, 2020, 10 min, in English with English closed captions)

Marsh Island
A portrait of an island on the edge of Union Bay in Seattle. An uneasy, but ever-evolving juxtaposition of the human and the natural; the hard thrum of the highway and swirling churn of the wetland.

(Luke Sieczek, US, 2021, 8 min)

In and Out a Window
** Content warning: This film contains a pronounced strobing effect, and may pose a risk to those with photosensitive epilepsy. **

Our front window from inside and out.

(Richard Tuohy, Australia, 2021, 12 min)

Floral Yearnings
An in-depth reflection on beauty.

(Linda Fenstermaker, US, 2021, 4 min)

Analog Nostalgia
During the coronavirus lockdown, Seattle filmmaker Serge Gregory rummages through his work to create an ode to the lost art of shooting, editing and projecting film.

(Serge Gregory, US, 2020, 5 min)

Of this Beguiling Membrane
The story unfolds on the Eve of Midsummer: on the day when the threshold between worlds is porous, and an idle gesture can tempt fate.

(Charlotte Pryce, US, 2020, 5 min)

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
