Initiated by The Guesthouse, Seesound is a unique artist-led initiative that enables sound artists, musicians and moving image-makers to form new collaborations to explore the effective relationship between sound and image. The 2013 edition, taking place on October 20th as part of the IndieCork Festival, is a collaboration between Experimental Film Society, The Guesthouse and Cork Film Centre, which will take the form of a day of screenings, performances and installations. This year, the venue for Seesound will be Cork Film Centre Gallery in Ballincollig, Co. Cork.
Experimental Film Society is an independent, not-for-profit entity specialising in avant-garde no/low budget filmmaking. It was founded in 2000 by filmmaker Rouzbeh Rashidi with the aim of producing and promoting films by its members. Experimental Film Society unites works by a dozen filmmakers scattered across the globe, whose films are distinguished by an uncompromising devotion to personal, experimental cinema. During October 2013, several EFS filmmakers are on a month-long residency at The Guesthouse. Seesound 2013 will be the culmination of this residency. It will feature EFS films, and performance collaborations between Experimental Film Society members and Cork-based sound artists and musicians.
