Kinoskop: The Main Program Announcement!

United colors of Kinoskop
Deep Waters (Alice Heit, 2019) | Prologue to the Tarot: Glenna (Brittany Gravely & Ken Linehan, 2018)
Aleph (Antonia Luxem, 2019) | Who Wants to Fall in Love? (Emily Van Loan, 2019)

"Analog filmmaking needed more love so we've decided to show why it is still so vital today - in Belgrade, of all places. 😻

I'm thrilled to announce that the first edition of Kinoskop will be taking place in Belgrade's hot spot for alternative, independent and underground culture - Kvaka 22 on 30th November and 1st December.

Results of the selection for the Main Program are finally out - fellow cinema junky Nikola Gocić and I have programmed 41 films in total of 7 Selections.

This years program is rather a breathtaking dive into the aesthetic world of filmmakers who work with celluloid today (Super 8, 16mm, 35mm, and found footage), extending through stories and motives which cover a lot of historical association with pioneers of avant-garde and independent cinema, but also impregnate them with a lot of vibrant energy and new ideas.

There's shades of mysticism and psychodrama of Deren, dealing with esoteric "thingamijigs" and alchemy of Anger, magically mundane secret diaries of Mekas, but rest assured this will be no sheer nostalgia trip... We will watch documentaries on subjects which haven't been touched upon in the history of cinema and witness peculiar deconstructions of sci-fi and horror genre through the creative lens and poetics of experimental film, take a trip inside nocturnal visions of the non-human world, oneirically sabotage H/B/ollywood on a found footage level and take on you on a rollercoaster ride in the realms of non-commercial, non-compromising, personal cinema. 👌

Take a sneak peak of things to come in this teaser album! Congrats to all filmmakers in this program, the entire festival schedule, catalog and Facebook event will be published on Monday! 🎬"

"The first edition of Kinoskop is quickly approaching, so it’s about time we reveal this year’s main program! In seven selections, there are forty one (yes, 41!) films that will enchant and mystify you, speak directly to your subconscious, subvert your genre (and many other!) expectations, and take you to the world(s) where myths and realities collide, blur the lines which separate them, and then coalesce into a dense medley of aural and visual stimuli. Experience it firsthand in art space Kvaka 22, Belgrade, on 29th November and 1st December! Welcome!"

Once again, congratulations to all filmmakers! 💗
