Moving Image Centre and the Goethe Institut Presents:

KURZ UND KLEIN : SHORT AND SMALL Highlights from the Oberhausen International Short Film Festival

Oberhausen's International Short Film Festival, in its 50th anniversary this year, is one of the oldest and most renowned film festivals in the world. Festival Director, Lars Henrik Gass, is touring New Zealand with a series of programmes celebrating the world of the short film.

Dr Lars Gass will be giving a short presentation before each screening

INTERNATIONAL VIDEO PROGRAMME

Entry by Koha ­ limited seating Saturday 29th May 6.30pm, as part of The Easy Listening Series Auckland Art Gallery Auditorium (cnr Kitchener Wellesley St)

This is without doubt the most political and experimental program of the series. Gunilla Josephson destroys the image of her (imaginary?) father Ingmar Bergman. Miranda July presents a confusing portrait of society on the brink of a catastrophe. Claudia Aravena thematizes September 11 against the background of the military putsch in Chile a good 30 years before.

All these works question the authenticity of the images and the perspective of the narrative.

Was Souheil Bachar actually a hostage in Lebanon? Was the female narrator of "Cargo" actually locked up with sailors on a ship for weeks on end? What images are valid where reality does not seem to make sense?

EASTERN EUROPE FILM PROGRAMME

Monday 31st May 6.30pm, Rialto Cinema, Newmarket, Auckland Bookings at Rialto Normal ticket prices apply

This program includes several of the most important films from the Socialist countries of Eastern Europe.

"These films are not narrative films in the strictest sense of the word but primarily animations and documentaries. Zilnik depicts not only the deplorable situation in former Yugoslavia but also the eye that depicts it. Godina, who at times works as Godard's assistant, portrays various sections of the population and the system which attempts to hold them together. The technique used by Rybzynski for his "Tango" won him an Oscar, and the Academy did not hesitate to award one to Svankmajer either. The background is the impending collapse of the Soviet Union and the vacuum that ensues."

HISTORICAL OVERVIEW - INTERNATIONAL FILM Historical Overview- International Film

Far removed from the undemanding uniformity which meanwhile pervades mainstream feature films, the international competition program offers a wide diversity of genres and innovations. Among these contributions from six countries are humorous films that make us laugh, distressing films that make us pensive, animated cartoon films for every taste and documentaries thematizing the gender relationships, violence and growing up. Although many of the films manage completely without language, they do in fact communicate with each other and in the end you cannot fail to notice the thread that runs through them all. We invite you to take this long and exciting voyage of discovery through the great cinema of short films.

Tuesday 1st June 6.30pm,

Rialto Cinema,

Newmarket,

Auckland

Bookings can be made at the Rialto ­ normal ticket prices apply

OPPORTUNITY: EXPERIMENTAL INTERDISCIPLINARY COLLABORATION I'm a Year 3 Performing Arts student in the Contemporary Dance Course at UNITEC and I'm looking for a digital media artist who is interested in collaborating with me in an interdisciplinary performance project as part of my course. The performance times will be the 4 evenings of Wed 16 to Sat 19 June. You would need to be available at the performance to operate a camera, manipulate images, and conduct live projection and also to work with me on a part-time basis leading up to the perfomance time. As this is a student project this is not paid work but there is a limited budget to cover costs, so it would suit a creative innovative artist who is keen to experiment with interfacing digital media with live performance / performance art / conceptual art / structured improvisation. If this interests you please reply to joceyfong@hotmail.com or call me on (09) 828 2331.

This year hundreds of people will take to the streets on June 11th for some creative chaos. Some will do it for the sheer fun of seeing their hard work shown to an enthusiastic crowd, some will do it for the chance to win international travel, cash prizes, GX30 mobile phones, Apple eMacs, writing workshops, directing workshops, Apple editing software, a dvd of the best of AK & WGTN, set visits and much, much more.

Shooting Weekend is June 11-13. Registration begins now. Entry forms available online www.48hours.co.nz.

The website will be updated shortly with the announcement of prizes and venue for the heats. There are a limited number of team spaces for each competing city ­ Auckland and Wellington.

VideoDance is a film exhibition, presenting a showcase of the latest experiments on film and movement.

Films are presented in thematic programmes. There are also sections presenting archival material on dance and film history, contemporary evolutions on movement and dance, video-installations, live media improvisation on image and sound. The festival takes place in Athens, in mid-September. The film programme is screened afterwards in Thessaloniki.

The festival is non-competitive and non-commercial.
