BELGIUM - GHENT - COURTISANE FESTIVAL - FILM, VIDEO AND MEDIA ART
April 23 - April 6, 2009
The 8th edition of the Courtisane festival presents a unique mix of (short) film, video, audiovisual performances and media art. Courtisane presents the work of today's most adventurous filmmakers in various locations in Ghent. 4 days packed with new cinematic experiences in the most varied forms. This year's dominant theme is the interplay between history and memory.
New work by established filmmakers and by young promises is compiled in thematic film programmes.
Guy Sherwin is Courtisane's central guest. This influential 'film-artist' will discuss film feedback and time lapse in the course of a screening/talk.
The special programme Somewhere in Time rethinks the relationships between past, present and future.
The exhibition A Simple Truth looks at how small gestures and little words colour personal recollections and collective memory, how they hide or reveal details.
And with An evening on... Courtisane presents two thematic evenings featuring live performances, screenings and installations.
