Following the sell-out success of our partnership with Edge of Frame at our last three festivals, EOF return with four curated programmes of work at the intersection of animation, experimental film and artists’ moving image. Specially curated by Edwin Rostron- the London-based artist, animator, writer, curator, editor of Edge of Frame blog and festival juror these programmes celebrate this incredibly rich and vibrant, yet often marginalised and hard to define art form.

This is a programme of five recent films which share a concern with ideas of the surface in relation to the moving image, from the film negative to the computer screen, though each approaches the theme in markedly different ways. Covering considerable ground both geographically and formally, the works utilise film (Super8, 16mm and 35mm) and digital formats, often combining elements of the two to captivating effect. Beyond their often quite startling formal qualities these works delve into rich personal and social histories, spiritual quests and conceptual enquiries. From Hackney to Hong Kong, and from entrancing flicker to meditative spaces, these works offer a dynamic vision of contemporary practice.

Please refer to the LIAF website for full programme details.
