Festival - Engauge Experimental Film Festival 2021

In this timely program, filmmakers explore the edges of and interrelationships among our environmental, economic and political challenges.

In this program:
$hithole Paradise
A comment on over-tourism in Hawaii, particularly along the historic Waikiki strip in Honolulu. Once a powerful, sacred place for Native Hawaiians, now a dirty playground for tourists. Shot on Super 8mm film.

(Melina Coumas, US, 2020, 3 min)

The Canyon
A portrait of the urban residential development as it slips into oblivion.

(Zachary Epcar, US, 2021, 16 min, in English)

Giant Eagle, Four Stars
In an abandoned shopping center outside of Cleveland, the story of the last remaining grocery store is told through recent Google reviews.

(Emma Piper-Burket, US, 2021, 4 min, in English)

Through different languages, this experimental work uses sound and visual poetry, presenting images with a non-linear flow of words in a context of exponential equations, making integrated use of the word, the meaning of the word, and the sound of the word.

(Khalil Charif & Christina Amiran, Brazil, 2021, 4 min, in Portuguese with English subtitles)

The transparent, holographic portions from Canadian dollar bills are contact printed on to 16mm film. A cameraless, dizzying closer look at the monarch, maple leaves and colonial structures that secure and validate our legal tender.

(Christine Lucy Latimer, Canada, 2021, 3 min)

Eclipse Prophecy
An attempted invocation during a rare celestial event.

(Miles Sprietsma, US, 2017, 3 min)

Presque Vu
Lush hand-crafted film footage and HD images combine to reveal a mysterious past through remnants of a memory that is almost remembered, but which never fully develops.

(Cecilia Araneda, Canada, 2013, 4 min)

The City is a Heat Island & our Forests are on Fire
The landscape is changing rapidly in Colorado. Denvers dense growth has contributed to trapped heat in the urban core. Meanwhile, the states mountain regions are suffering from more frequent and devastating wildfires. These two changing landscapes are juxtaposed together through in-camera multiple exposures on film.

(Kathleen Rugh, US, 2019, 5 min)

New Beginnings and False Starts
A New Years card that looks backwards to consider what might be to come. A collage made up of outtakes from The Quick and the Dead and educational filmstrips.

(Mark Street, US, 2021, 2 min)

Deepest Darkness, Flaming Sun
Narrated by wilderness guide Marte Agneberg Dahl, Deepest Darkness, Flaming Sun features altered Super 8mm film footage of the Svalbard Archipelago in the Norwegian Arctic.

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
