@Tommy – Mr. Audley is a real supporter of true independent film. He likes “In Passing” and wanted to put it on his site but he has nothing to do with Remodernism.
In Passing is now online and available to watch for free on NoBudge
The Q&A with two of the filmmakers, Peter Rinaldi and Heidi Beaver begins at 9:30 pm. Eastern time on the same page. You can participate via chat by signing up for free Ustream account or by signing in as a guest.
We would be very honored by any of you that can make it tonight. You have just about enough time to get the film in before the Q&A at 9:30.
Watch it FREE here
For those of you that missed it, here is a rerecorded version (original lost due to technical issues) of last night’s Q&A for In Passing. With Heidi Beaver and Peter Rinaldi

Anybody willing to share the VIMEO’s password to watch IN PASSING?
Used to be free to watch a few weeks ago.
Check out the trailer for Ascending, a collaborative Remodernist film by Nick Block and Mikel Guillén:
I am a french student in cinema, currently preparing a master degree thesis in Paris on REMODERNIST CINEMA.
I am looking for any information about it. Also ready to discuss with anyone and share ideas on films.
Would also like to get in touch with some of the remodernist film makers.
This is a good place to start. Aloha!
Last year our podcast at Syndromes and a Cinema was on Remodernism and we interviewed Jesse Richards, the author of the Remodernist Manifesto, as well as discuss the excellent remodernist film In Passing. Check it out and you’ll get a great primer in Remodernism (we actually read the manifesto on the podcast) and some insight into a great film.
Love to hear your feedback, too!
Florian, I put out the word that you wanted to talk to Remodernist filmmakers, so hopefully some will be in touch. And if you’d like to ask me anything, you know how to reach me.
If you’d like to, you can contact me through my website peterrinaldi.com
also you should check out inpassing.info for more links to articles on remodernist film in general and ‘in passing’ in particular.
and, i too highly recommend listening to syndromes and a cinema’s wonderful podcast!
This is absolutely great man, thank you! You can reach me here… send me a pm if you’d like to ask me something…
Congrats! If you need anything, pm me anytime.
Than you for this warm and enthusiastic welcome.
I will contact all of you soon.

/!\ I you can specify anything (exact date for example) on what I mentionned above, please do. It would be nice.
+ of course, all the remodernist films
I will post as soon as I can the filmography of remodernism including all the films by remodernist film makers.
My question is : do you have anything else ?
Jesse, I am still looking for those academic works (thesis?) that you mentioned when I sent you an email some weeks ago. If you can lay your hand on those works, it would be great for me.
A thousand thanks.
Very cool that this thread is becoming a resource for Remodernism, and it’s great to see so many of the filmmakers chiming in and willing to help.
Likewise, feel free to send me a message with any questions you may have.
Hi Florian- the finished works were never shared with me unfortunately; just the fact that someone each time was doing a dissertation or thesis on the movement. I have found the contact info for one woman who contacted me about her dissertation on remodernist film. I’ll send you her contact info. Also someone included remodernist film in his dissertation on the impact of punk and no-wave in contemporary creative practice. I’ll get you his info as well.
Unfortunately those are the only two I could find in my email. The others must have been deleted.
I am one of the filmmakers from “In Passing.” You can contact me here: http://vimeo.com/18537847
if you would like.
Actually, I have a question that I can’t get off my mind : who is really a member/a part of the remodernism?
Is there any official list or nobody really knows who is remodernist and who is not ?
I have two clues/lists at hand which can help me:
1/ The directors members of International Alliance of Remodernist Filmmakers, ie:
Jesse Richards, Harris Smith, Christopher Michael Beer, Dmitri Trakovsky, Kate Shults, Peter Rinaldi, Roy Rezaali, Rouzbeh Rashidi, Dean Kavanagh.
But I read somewhere that Kavanagh and Rashidi withdrew, Who else ?
2/ The directors who participated in the movie In passing, ie:
BEAVER Heidi Elise, BEER Christopher Michael, KAVANAGH Dean, RASHIDI Rouzbeh, REZAÄLI Roy, RINALDI Peter & SHULTS Kate
Now, I see that Mikel Guillen and Nick Block declare here their involvement into remodernist movement
So my question is: who is remodernist nowadays (not in the past)? Yourselves remodernists, do you know it?
Florian- I specifically did things in a way similar to the Stuckists, where there were an initial few people who started together (this was before the manifesto: myself, Nic Watson, Harris Smith, and sometimes Wolf Howard- and these were screenings). Then the manifesto and Peter Rinaldi and the others associated with In Passing… Now like the Stuckists, it is an approach open to anyone who feels like they want to work in this way. Nobody needs my permission or blessing to be a Remodernist filmmaker. That being said, some people tell me about being involved and others use the name without telling me. Either option is fine. I can put you in touch with the ones that reached out to me. Bela Tarr’s production notes for Turin Horse described it as Remodernist, but I think at the same time he doesn’t want to be “labeled”…
Also there’s this
“The First Aggregate” people were in touch with me asking for permission to describe their film as Remodernist (I haven’t seen it, but I told them what I said above- my permission is not needed).
Toby Venable who is making MODERNGRUMBLE is also active here…
Tobe Morgan who in the process of editing NOISE GOD identifies with remodernism, but I’m not sure if he’s using that word in reference to his film…

Some of these I’ve seen, some I haven’t, some I can relate to and some I don’t. But all of those people can probably be reached pretty easily.
There is also a new Remodernist project I will be involved with happening in Autumn 2013, but I can’t give details of it publicly yet, because it will be connected to a film festival and they are not ready for any announcements to be made. I will share those details as soon they are ready for me to do that.
Also there is a facebook group, where you might be able to find more people describing their work as remodernist
Nick Block and myself shot a Remodernist short film called Ascending. I am in preproduction of “The Natural State” which is a Remodernist film.
i will send you the link of the teaser very soon.
Here is a film I made, highly influenced by remodernism :
SKYGGEN OG STENEN (2012)
Anybody else would like to speak about remodernist cinema ?
As you know Florian I think this is a wonderful film. It would be really great if the folks here gave it a look and shared their responses with you…
