Announcing a new mailing list for experimental film.
"FrameWorks" -- a forum for the open discussion of film as art, or film as
visual poetry, its expressive qualities aside from or in addition to its
storytelling capabilities. This can cover any aspect of film taken in this
context: unipersonal production, techniques and financing, history and
aesthetic of avant-garde film, critical discussions, new directions, courses
and teaching, festivals for new work, announcements of world-wide events in
film, retrospectives, exchanges of information, ideas and help with projects,
selling rights, etc.
The list is open to anyone making, teaching, researching, programming and
discovering experimental and avant-garde film -- whether film educators,
students, professionals, media librarians, or self-schooled fans, whether
they have access to films or not. Discussion is invited on any topic
mentioned above but also on the current situation of experimental
noncommerical film and filmmmakers, the possibilities of seeing new work, of
screening spaces and institutions, of obtaining grants and funding for
artists, of archiving historic films, restoring early films, etc.
