February 12, 13, 14, 2021 – Live Event
Each year we curate a thematic film festival, and accept submissions via an open call. The theme for 2021 was: Release Me.
Imagining or experiencing the moment or process of liberation, of deliverance from what holds you, confined or isolated, gripped in uncertainty or fear, held back by powerful forces or structures, kept apart from others, mired in confusion, dwelling in the dark.
To witness or feel this point in time in slow motion or rapid fire
To imagine it as really possible, even sustainable.
How do we imagine a world or ourselves changed after emerging from the grip of fear, solitude, anxiety, grief, oppression?
What does the other side of this prolonged condition look like ?
What occurs in the moment of release ?
