Pocket cinema: Peter Kubelka’s lectures during 25FPS

May 9, 2011

Combining the mastery of experimental film making and the chemistry of cuisine, Peter Kubelka is certainly more than interesting person to listen to about the art of cinema, celluloid and the sound.

Thanks to peeps from 25FPS – International Festival of Experimental Film and Video we can enjoy two short footages from Kubelka’s lectures Metric Cinema and Metaphoric Cinema held in September, 2010.

25FPS interview with Bruce McClure

January 15, 2011

It seems like I’m publishing here by default video interviews made by 25FPS – International Festival of Experimental Film and Video. Well, yes… I do! It would be a shame to miss out interesting people talking about interesting stuff. As you can see, it can’t be simpler…

Thus, expanded cinema experimentalist and soundscape ‘catcher’ Bruce McClure talks in short about that what’s behind his works ‘There was something else behing it!’ and ‘Treeshade looms up behind the jostling’.

25FPS interview with Phill Niblock

November 4, 2010

This year, I was forced to miss 25FPS – International Festival of Experimental Film and Video due to private issues that erupted during  September… and I had so many plans… and you know how much I like this festival and Expanded Cinema concept…

Well, I can only swallow the lump and move forward… One of the things I planned for this year’s edition of the festival was to interview Phill Niblock… knowing the propulsive wire and passion of the 25FPS peeps I can be happier right now, because few hours ago they published video interview with Phill Niblock on their Vimeo account…
