Join us for Cinematic Oktoberfest, a weekend of free screenings and workshops by two terrific visiting German artists-in-residence! Tonight’s screening features an array of mind-bending work created and curated by Florian Cramer, featuring floppy disk films, GIF Zines and a selection of mini documentaries & abstract videos blended in a performative projection. FREE EVENT! FILMMAKER IN ATTENDANCE!
Florian Cramer is both a DIYer and scholar; he wrote his PhD thesis on the history of combinatorial-generative poetry, and has been making Super 8 films since 1985. His website “Permutations” (https://permutations.pleintekst.nl), launched in 1997, reconstructs historical generative poetry as web bots. In 2009, he began filmmaking on floppy disks (http://turbulence.org/blog/2009/07/30/florian-cramers-floppy-films/; http://floppyfilms.pleintekst.nl), around the same time an extended work of documenting contemporary arts/DIY events in Rotterdam, Netherlands on video, adopting a zinemaking work method to filmmaking.
This event is made possible by Wunderbar Together: Germany and the US, an initiative funded by the German Federal Foreign Office, implemented by Goethe Institut and supported by BDI The Voice of Germany Industry.
