SPECIAL GUEST: AVI MOGRABI

After studying philosophy and art in Tel Aviv, Avi turned to filmmaking in the late 80s and cast his lens over the conflicts and contradictions of the Israeli-Palestine conflict. This body of work figures as a dispatch from the front lines of a war zone and can hardly be said to be the work of a dispassionate and uninvolved observer.

SPECIAL GUEST: PAWEŁ ŁOZIŃSKI

With a burgeoning filmography behind him Paweł Łoziński, whose early ‘90s films tackle the traumas of Polish history, has become well known as the creator of ‘non-action’, intimate films that do not simply document the lives of so-called ordinary people but seek the complexities and singularities within them.

CONTEMPORARY FILMS

This strand features a selection of recently made non-fiction films from around the world.

LIGHT OF EXPOSURE

Considering that Otherfield as a team is made of filmmakers rather than curators or programmers, it was thought that this year we would start featuring fellow practitioners who have been working consistently in the field of documentary, but not been getting the exposure that we felt their work merited.

LOST GEMS

Special guests present screenings of hard-to-find films that have had a strong impact on their work. 

ROUGH CUT SCREENINGS

STUDENT AND EMERGING FILMS

Otherfield continues its commitment to the emerging talents of non-fiction filmmaking by again featuring a selection of films made by both first time filmmakers and students of the genre. 

BRING YOUR OWN

Over the years the ‘Bring Your Own’ slot has proven to be a popular strand of the Otherfield film festival. We like to think what makes these sessions unique and, perhaps, why they are popular, is that filmmakers only rarely get feedback-from or have access-to experienced professional editors. So, once more, we are glad to invite festival-goers to show 10 minutes of a work-in-progress and receive feedback from industry editors. This year there will be four two hour slots in the company of Jane Hodge (Editor, Channel 4), Bonnie Rae Brickman (Editor/UCL Tutor) and Asher Tlalim (Director & Editor/NFTS Tutor).

WORKSHOPS

In-depth ‘warts and all’ how-to workshops. Focusing on creative process and practical know-how we invite experts in the field to talk frankly about aspects of their work in a relaxed and conversational setting.

 

MUSIC & SOUND

Expect wild sounds, soundtracks, sound installations.
