film / video tm.09: Screening Territories
Under the leitmotif Screening Territories the film and video section of transmediale.09 explores the theme of this years' festival. Together with the works from the international competition and a series of compilation programmes by invited guest curators , the programme includes more than 70 current productions by international artists.
The competition programmes mainly feature selections from the entries to the transmediale award 2009 – where the majority of this year's award submissions may also be viewed at the project library in the foyer of the House of World Cultures throughout the period of the festival.
Special programme contributions come from invited guest curators. The Berlin based film curators Marcel Schwierin and Florian Wüst have compiled the two part programme Eisschmelze im Kühlschrank / Melting Fridges and Marlene Rigler from Argos Arts in Brussels has curated a special selection of works entitled State/s of Emergency.
Many of the artists will be present at the festival providing an opportunity for discussion after the presentation of their work. On Sunday, February 1, the programme closes with the preview of the annual transmediale video selection.
