Austria’s ‘avant-garde film tradition’ is in flux. There’s a group of innovative filmmakers who are departing from the forms that have dominated over recent years, and this programme, curated by filmmaker and animation scholar Thomas Renoldner, is a showcase of their work. With a richness of different artistic interests, strategies and techniques, and an undogmatic openness to experimentation and entertainment, these films are not just progressive, but they’re pure fun too. We’re pleased to have Thomas here to introduce the screening.
