Hungry eyes festival, a festival at the intersection of film, performance, and installation art, will take place from the 5th to the 7th of February 2021 in the exhibition space KiZ (Kultur im Zentrum). Together with the artists and the audience we want to explore how we can experience the medium film outside of the cinema and think about it differently.
5th to 7th of February at KiZ in Gießen
For its fourth edition, hungry eyes festival is once again looking for artistic works that situate themselves at the intersection of film, performance and installation art and question film in an interdisciplinary way. This year hungry eyes festival will take place in the urban exhibition space KiZ (Kultur im Zentrum) and poses the question of how cinematic works can relate to, as well as challenge that space. A program consisting of short film series, performative and installative works will explore what constitutes the medium film and how cinematographic elements and working methods can be translated into other media.
What can cinematic work mean in the context of installation art and performances if it does not only mean the playing of audiovisual clips? To what extent can also a short film address its own form and play with performative elements?
By which means does film become a field of experimentation that expands its own concept and practice in an interdisciplinary approach? From a ballet of overhead projectors, an exhibition with flip-books to a silent movie screening with virtual reality glasses – everything is possible.
hungry eyes is looking for your short films, installation art and performative formats!
deadline: 31th of August 2020!
