Essay Film Festival 2017, March 24th to April 1st
Information on the 2017 Essay Film Festival preludes can be found here.
The Essay Film Festival is an annual celebration of this elusive, disruptive, and dynamically hybrid form. The aim of the festival is to expand the visibility of the essay film, not as a fixed genre but as a spectrum of possibilities, shifting between registers and playing with conventions. Bringing together the most striking, innovative examples of essayistic filmmaking – both contemporary and historical – from around the world, the festival complements the screenings with in-depth discussions with filmmakers and special guests.
