Reel to Real: On the Move – Experimental Shorts
February 15 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
On the Move is a touring programme of experimental film from the Scottish Borders-based Moving Image Makers Collective.
As the first self-curated programme of films by MIMC, On the Move speaks to the notions of intervening – with assistance from the moving image upon one’s immediate environment. By turns tentative and assertive, these works find rhythm, music and movement in acquired objects, found phenomena and even silence; each, in its own way, argues the case for environment as a conditioning device: a way by which one begins to think about negotiating the world, and the basis for any aesthetic response to it.
MIMC members come from a diverse range of backgrounds and include authors, poets, photographers, filmmakers, playwrights, painters and mixed media artists. They meet monthly to present new work for peer feedback, an on-going and collective process of exploration of the moving image which has led to this new programme. On the Move saw its world premiere in May 2019 at the ninth edition of Alchemy Film and Moving Image Festival, it has toured internationally since.
