First Experimental Film Society Screening
On July 29th, Hello Operator, Dublin, will host the first Experimental Film Society screening. Founded and run by Dublin-based Iranian filmmaker Rouzbeh Rashidi, 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. 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 programme, curated and presented by Rashidi, will feature works by all twelve Experimental Film Society members. Several of the filmmakers will also be present.
Short Films by: Mohammad Nick Dell, Mahdi Safarali, Navid Salajegheh, Bahar Samadi, Jann Clavadetscher, Behzad Haki, Pouya Ahmadi, Kamyar Kordestani, Michael Higgins, Maximilian Le Caine, Rouzbeh Rashidi & Hamid Shams.
Experimental Film Society is an independent, not-for-profit film production company specialising in avant-garde, independent and no/low budget filmmaking. It was founded in 2000 in Tehran, Iran. Its aim is to produce and promote films by its members.
