Film Festival CineB, at Saturday 12th November 2011, 15.00 pm, CINE ARTE ALAMEDA, Santiago, CHILE, will be screening the first program of the short films of EFS in an international film festival.
Founded and run by Dublin-based Iranian filmmaker Rouzbeh Rashidi, Experimental Film Society unites works by filmmakers scattered across the globe, whose films are distinguished by an uncompromising, no-budget devotion to personal, experimental cinema. Mainly, but not exclusively, drawn from a diaspora of Iranian artists, Experimental Film Society is responsible for rescuing and preserving many of its members’ films, which otherwise might have been lost forever.
This program features a selection of works by some of the most prolific Experimental Film Society members: Jann Clavadetscher, Michael Higgins, Kamyar Kordestani, Hamid Shams Javi, Maximilian Le Cain (working in partnership with Vicky Langan), and Rashidi himself.
