At the onset of his landmark essay Towards A Minor Cinema, Tom Gunning quotes Deleuze and Quattari: There is nothing that is major or revolutionary except the minor.
For RPM 2020, we ask, what is “minor cinema” today and what can it do for us, our consumption of media, our relationship with the environment, our world?

PRISME    no.1       –        Nantes,   France

7th – 10th of December

For the first edition of PRISME, Mire would like to share its knowledge of an analog filmmaking made around the world which, more than a simple activity, is a real exploration process.  Claiming ways of seeing, doing and thinking above all, PRISME lets cinema freeze or expand, presents pioneering practices and discussions about the future, opens to photography, visual, performative, sound arts.

In the wake of Bains Argentiques, international artist-run filmlabs meeting that Mire organized in 2016, PRISME celebrates current analog film practices and dynamics as well as promoting the networks that are committed to its development, artistic experimentation in general, and do it yourself philosophy.

‘Suspended between appearing and disappearing, presence and absence, the legible and the illegible, the films showcased here explore perceptual limits and the spaces between. A gradually deteriorating VHS tape, fragments of old colour 16mm film stock, traces of memory, glimpses of light and shadow, forms emerging and dissolving – our attention is moved from the figurative to the abstract, finding focus and then losing it again.’

BEEF presents an evening of single and double-screen 16mm projections and live performances emphasizing bodily encounters, gestures and inscriptions. Acts of physical endurance are combined with explorations of space, place and the environment. The three artists engage in different but overlapping ways with the material and mechanical specificities of celluloid film, incorporating humour and absurdity. Expect bodies, bicycles, feet, and a participatory ‘living film loop’.

Black Box Shorts 1: In the Body of Technology 

Monday 20th and Tuesday 21st June 

This short experimental film programme reflects on the way technology dialogues with the body, creating a two-way process of transformation. Gestures and movements are broken down and analysed, destabilised and defamiliarised. The physicality of the body meets the material of film and digital, migrating through forms and layers and creating new perceptions and experiences. The screening ends with a live performative intervention that connects the filmmaker, the audience, the filmstrip and the projected image. [PG]

Black Box Shorts 1: Placing Performance, Staging the Self –  22nd and 26th June

Expanding notions of performance though the material, the spatial, the personal and the relational.

Displaying a wide range of technical and conceptual approaches, the films in this programme question the role and nature of performance beyond the strictly theatrical. Not acting but acting out in ways that force us to see, experience and understand things differently. Here, performance sets up critical relations between people and places, and weaves a complex fabric of fluid and interchanging selves. What is performance and, most importantly, what isn’t?

One Hundred Foot II is the second gathering of filmmakers’ and artists’ 16mm films. As an industry standard, 100 feet of film (approximately 3 minutes) is the given length for a small spool of 16mm film. This given/standard/restraint has been used by artists in the past and remains a pertinent form/format for creating films. Utilizing this number, a film can be conjured up within the parameters of two distant but specific points – 0 and 100. In understanding that film, as opposed to digital, is measured in this tactile and physical form of length, the filmmaker/artist must address the issue of time through the measurement of a material length. For some, this constraint is seen as a time limit; for others, it becomes a finite amount of physical material in which to construct a work, similar to a sculptor’s material.

In 1983, Deke Dusinbeere stated in his programme notes for Avant-Garde British Landscape Films at the Tate, that – even when culturally and physically we are incapable of sharing the same view – we can all appreciate the  need to search for a new representation of the world, for new terms in which to envisage the future.’ * The artists in this programme continue this search, engaging and revealing through ‘light, colour, movement and texture’ * a diverse landscape with infinite ways of seeing it.

Artists include: Luke Aspell, Jenny Baines, Nick Collins, Chris Paul Daniels, Nicky Hamlyn, Bea Haut, Jamie Jenkinson, Jennifer Nightingale, Damien Monteau, Gareth Polmeer, Action Pyramid, John Smith and Sally Troughton.

Projecting films on David Leister’s ‘portable’ 35mm Fumeo projector, this evening has been concocted to set a challenge to artists and filmmakers to experiment within the 35mm frame yet work outside of industry parameters. Continuing with an interest in celluloid film’s materiality and the performance of projection, Analogue Recurring would like to provoke  DIY film technologies, help define contemporary artist’s analogue film production and confound the general view that analogue film is dead.’

    Saturday 12th October 2013

A series of short exhibitions and performance events by seven artists that predominantly work with analogue film and installation. They will each install a new work, or new composition of works at the Project Space at various points from the months of July through to October 2013.

The remit is purely to explore the sculptural possibilities of film installation within the project space. This will be an opportunity for the artists to experiment with the methodologies and material of celluloid film and projected light, as well as the expanded cinematic qualities of film as performance and form.

A full listing of the artist’s information and event dates will be posted here:
