No foreigner to FIFA, the british plateform NOWNESS curated a Carte Blanche around experimentation.

Program: NOWNESS Experiments
Strap in for NOWNESS Experiments, a program of short films dedicated to unorthodox moving-image culture. Pushing innovations in CGI, 3D animation, and video art, NOWNESS’ festival line-up shines a spotlight on world-class digital creatives at the vanguard of experimental cinema. The screening will feature work from fashion’s most in-demand artist Quentin Jones and award-winning filmmaker Marc Johnson. Furthermore, projects from Lebanese directors Aya Atoui and Anthony Sahyoun and American-Japanese filmmaker Sonia Royal will explore speculative futures and imagined histories. As a FIFA exclusive, NOWNESS will also be screening a canadian premiere of Care More, a dimension-shifting animation from multimedia artist Thomas Rawle.
