Experimental Film Society (EFS) is an independent, not-for-profit entity specialising in avant-garde, independent and no/low budget filmmaking. It was founded in 2000 in Tehran, Iran by Rouzbeh Rashidi and has been based in Dublin, Ireland since 2004. Its aim is to produce and promote films by its members. Experimental Film Society unites works by a dozen filmmakers scattered across the globe, whose films are distinguished by an uncompromising, no-budget devotion to personal, experimental cinema. Experimental Film Society is responsible for rescuing and preserving many of its members’ films, which otherwise might have been lost forever.
Rouzbeh Rashidi archives and produces films by EFS members; he arranges, curates and presents screenings and online hosting (EFS Video Archive) of these works. He also conceived and produced the EFS portmanteau feature film The Last of Deductive Frames and the EFS sound project Cinema Cyanide.
