The last day of the conference is dedicated to the field between the moving image and contemporary art, which continues to be one of the most vital and innovative in cinema today. Artists’ films move beyond the cinema itself. Through four talks we invite the artists and filmmakers themselves to speak of their experiences in the field, and to outline new currents and tendencies, as well as possible challenges in terms of financing, production, and distribution.

Date: Friday, March 23
Time: 10:00 – 17:00
Location: Social Cinema
Kunsthal Charlottenborg

 The day is curated by CPH:DOX and hosted by:
