Experimental Film Society Exhibition at Triskel Project Space
Experimental Film Society (EFS) is a group of experimental filmmakers and associated artists whose work is distinguished by an uncompromising devotion to personal, experimental cinema. They have in common an exploratory approach to filmmaking, foregrounding mood, atmosphere, visual rhythms, the interplay of sound and picture, and the permeability of the borders between fiction and lyrical filmmaking. Although an international organization, EFS is notably at the centre of a new wave of Irish experimental filmmaking. It was founded and is run by Rouzbeh Rashidi.
Luminous Void is a six-week exhibition that will include an installation by Cinema Cyanide (Rouzbeh Rashidi, Maximilian Le Cain, Dean Kavanagh); a series of short film programmes by EFS members and friends on loop that will change every week; and three live screening/performance events that will emphasise the open, cross-disciplinary definition of ‘cinema’ that EFS explores.
Luminous Void’s programme of short films that sound/performance artist Vicky Langan made in collaboration with Maximilian Le Cain (screening May 5th – 11th) is running concurrently with Triskel’s Deep Focus: Women in Film Festival and will be preceded by a live performance by Langan on May 5th.
This exhibition is made possible with the support of Cork Film Centre.
