Time to get inappropriate at Filmforum
Curators Jaimie Baron, Lauren Berliner and Greg Cohen will be on hand to introduce the world premiere of the 6th edition of the Festival of (In)appropriation. Founded in 2009, the Festival of (In)appropriation is a yearly showcase of contemporary short audiovisual works that appropriate film or video footage and repurpose it in "inappropriate" and inventive ways.
Whether you call it collage, compilation, found footage, détournement, or recycled cinema, this kind of work generates novel juxtapositions of elements which produce new meanings and ideas unintended by the original makers – meanings and ideas that are, in other words "inappropriate."
This year's show includes new work by Gregg Biermann, Celeste Fichter, Zoe Fothergill, Josh Hite, Soda_Jerk, Justin Lincoln, Emma Osbourn, Cheryl Pagurek, Liz Rodda, Kelly Sears, Scott Stark and Tina Takemoto.
