International Film Festival Carbunari . Romania – November 16-17, 2007
After Urban – International ArtExpo Collection
The International Experimental Film Festival is dedicated exclusively to sustaining and promoting the experimental films.
We consider the experimental film to be one of the most interesting expression forms of contemporary art. The interest shown by the public who watched the films, apart from the festival, determined us to change the classical way of approaching an experimental film festival. We’ve therefore decided to change the regulations so that any kind of constrains will be avoided. That is why we eliminate the participation fee and the jury who chooses the winners. Most of the film critics, artists and common art consumers considered the viewing and the real perception of the artistic creation to be more important than establishing a classification based on prize awarding. The involvement of a jury in such a festival leads to a selection based on a subjective opinion and consequently to an artificial point of view, which influences the real perception of the event. Every experimental film has a justification only when it is not a subject of an official analyzes or any other preset value criteria. The Florean Museum’s experimental film collection is a reference point of the contemporary experimental film and is available to anyone who wants to study the phenomenon.
