REGENERATION

Sunday 18th November, 2012, Tabernacle, Notting Hill, London

We were asked by Regeneration Festival at West London’s Tabernacle to programme a 60 minute slot of short experimental film and video work exploring the influence of the psychedelic experience on film culture and moving image arts and vice versa. The original intention was to screen an abridged version of the 16mm film programme Solar Flares Burn For You. Instead, we’ve opted for a programme of film and video hybrids to stimulate discussion. The intention is to induce a cine-aesthetic experience somewhat akin to an altered state of consciousness – if not its own form of altered audiovisual state.

Here’s the poster – come join us and regenerate friends!

 

HACKNEY FILM FESTIVAL

7-9th September 2012, various venues across the London borough of Hackney

The AGC joins forces with Hackney Film Festival this year, last year’s Solar Flares event having clashed with last year’s launch night of the festival. With particular focus on co-programming Saturday’s night’s centrepiece show at Dalston’s Cafe Oto, An Evening of Expanded Cinema, mind-expanding multiple projector and sound works performed live, the AGC has also helped out across the festival as a whole and co-directed the trailer film with Festival Director Steve McInerney.

The Hackney Film Festival is a not-for-profit organisation and a collective of local filmmakers and artists. Our aim is to create a rich film culture within the London Borough of Hackney, by providing a platform for local filmmakers and audio-visual artists to have their works exhibited to the community and a wider London audience.
