VIDEOFORUM screenings programme, organized by the ‘Kreativni sindikat’ association, brings a selection of the current international production of experimental, animation and artists’ films. Beside its primary activity – film production, as a logical step in the association’s development, ‘Kreativni sindikat’ has a goal of bringing together a selection of interconnected activities, all aiming toward research, understanding, contextualization, promotion, presentation of the recent audiovisual production by the Croatian and international contemporary artists – starting with self-produced work, and giving context to works by artists who find their ways in different formats, discourses and models, dealing with moving images, works balancing the fine line between existing canons of representation and production of film and artists’ video, animation, experimental film, and -contemporary art, institutional framework of cinema production, festivals, galleries and museums. The programme provides a showcasing platform for the work produced outside of the entertainment industry context, often distant from the dominating narratives of the cinematographic production. VIDEOFORUM is formed as a meeting point between artwork and the audience, a place of conversation and discussion, of artistic appearances-mapping, found in the ‘in-between’ space – as a part of the critical form and praxis, overflowing with questions.
The programme comprises of two blocks of screenings, gathering works of eight Croatian and international contemporary artists of the same generation, but with varied backgrounds.
