FIFA Expérimental - Performances

FIFA Expérimental — Performances

FIFA EXPERIMENTAL is an out-of-competition, by-invitation section of the festival programmed by visual and media arts curator Nicole Gingras.
After three editions in virtual mode, FIFA EXPERIMENTAL returns with a program of exclusively in-person screenings. This decision was prompted by the desire to celebrate forms of cinema in which the physical dimension of the visual and aural experience is felt most fully when projected on a large screen, in a theatre, with an audience.
Four programs have been assembled so as to suggest — and in some cases provoke — thematic, formal, structural, technical, symbolic, oneiric, philosophical and political correspondences among the works chosen. This selection puts the accent on innovative approaches to film and video according to three major axes: creative processes, modes of collaboration between artists in the production of a work, and materiality of sounds and images.

The FIFA Experimental – Performances program deals with listening and touch in relation to memory, rhythm, motion and emotion. Bettina Hoffmanns work reveals fascinating gestures, Nathalie Bujolds short animation pays a tribute to the Hungarian composer György Ligeti, and Andrew Forsters medium-length film presents Montreal composer and violinist Malcolm Goldsteins unique definition of experimental improvisation.
