Glad to see Brisbane International Film Festival back at Queensland Art Gallery/Gallery of Modern Art and kicking off this Thursday evening—looking forward to seeing people there and throughout the festival. Our ten picks of unusual films to catch are: Bait Ghost Town Anthology The Grand Bizarre* In the Jungle* Memento Stella Pia Borg’s Silica + Demonic Portrait of a Lady on Fire The Souvenir Tondal’s Vision* Quantification Trilogy* *Selected for BIFF by QFF director John Edmond and so we're biased. Image = Jodie Mack's The Grand Bizarre.
Some of our favourite emails are from Prototype - e-newsletter of experimental video art & short film—which presents newly commissioned shorts and artist films every week. Next week's newsletter brings key Brisbane artist Hannah Bronte Cooper Mccoy's latest film to cap off Prototype's first series of films. To see it, and stay up to date on the next season of commissions, simply sign up at their website. Free and amazing. Image: The Sweet Suits (Hannah Brontë, 2019)
This Thursday, 6:30pm at Outer Space in West End, we're screening three films by the Cantrills, from their work on North Stradbroke, as well as a new work by Amelia Hine. In 2010 Senses of Cinema put together a dossier on the Cantrill's immense contribution to Australia's filmic practice. http://sensesofcinema.com/category/arthur-and-corinne-cantrill-dossier/
Ticket Giveaway! Peterloo is opening in Brisbane on the 16th of May. Directed by the acclaimed Mike Leigh, the film examines in detail the Peterloo Massacre of 1819, in which the British cavalry charged protesters demanding greater democratic representation. Once part of a typical school education, as part of the rise of representational democracy (and catalyst for the birth of the The Guardian), this defining event has since been forgotten—Leigh's objective is in part to vividly re-capture this tumultuous moment. To celebrate this release, Transmission Films have 5 double passes to giveaway—to enter simply tag a friend you think would want to join you—and we'll randomly choose the winners shortly.
Ticket Giveaway! The Brisbane International Film Festival is now halfway through but there are still some amazing movies coming up including Cold Water and Personal Problems, which we have a few select tickets to giveaway—simply message us or tag a friend to enter and we'll contact you. Cold Water plays tonight at Queensland Art Gallery/Gallery of Modern Art at 8:20 and is a restoration of an early masterpiece by Olivier Assayas (Irma Vep, Carlos, Clouds of Sils Maria). Personal Problems plays on Sunday at 10:30am at GoMA, and is recently re-discovered work by independent African-American filmmaker Bill Gunn film made in defiance of the racially exclusive Hollywood studio system.
MOVIE GIVEAWAY! After too many absent years, the Brisbane International Film Festival returns tomorrow night and to celebrate we have 5 double passes to giveaway. We've chosen our Top 5 films of the festival* to grab a double pass, simply tag a friend you'd like to join you and name the movie: CASANOVA GENE (taken) Luise Donschen's essay on female lust, thicc boys, and a dance solo to rival Beau Travail's. THE GREEN FOG (taken) Guy Maddin and the Johnson Brothers reconstruction of Vertigo drawn entirely from San Francisco film footage—appropriately, and inappropriately. MADELINE'S MADELINE (taken) Josephine Decker's breakthrough film is a psychodrama pushed into the red—hot contrasts, untamed camera movements, expressionistic acting, and rich Lynchian sound design. WANDA (taken) Written, directed and starring Barbara Loden, Wanda is one of the great films of '70s independent filmmaking—feminist, barbed and its new restoration unveiling the detail of a forgotten working-class world. THE WILD BOYS (taken) Bertrand Mandico's debut feature and somewhere between Cocteau's fantasique world and H.G. Well's The Island of Doctor Moreau. Queer, fantastic, and with a blinding performance from Elina Löwensohn. *In alphabetical order to avoid fights and skipping TERROR NULLIUS, QFF2018's opening night movie, on the grounds that it's a free screening.
The Body Beautiful by Ngozi Unwurah plays this Thursday at 6:30pm at the Institute of Modern Art as part of our free screening & discussion Love Means Taking Action. A stunning exploration of body image after a white mother undergoes a radical mastectomy while her black daughter, Ngozi, begins a modelling career. A bold documentary that weaves in memory and fantasy. For more info and to attend: https://www.eventbrite.com.au/e/qff-screening-love-means-taking-action-part-2-tickets-48192604377?aff=efbeventtix
