CALL FOR CONTRIBUTIONS
What is Radical Film?
BERLIN 02nd– 05th May 2019
Continuing the spirit in which the Radical Film Network (RFN) was founded, the first RADICAL FILM NETWORK MEETING in Berlin aims to create a temporary space with the intention of initiating open exchange and dialogue between actors of the Radical Film Network, Berlin filmmakers and cultural practitioners. It will bring together activists, academics, filmmakers and artists in Berlin to jointly answer the question, “What is radical film?“.
In recent years an interdisciplinary discourse has developed around counter images and movement images, covering all areas of cultural life, including theatre, exhibitions, cinema, TV, and the Internet. It consistently attempts to find new means of narration and representation that undermine conventional codes and conventions by opposing, alienating and deconstructing them by offering different methods of representing and interpreting the world. Discussions surrounding the formats and forms of radical film will be the theme of the event, along with finding ideas to recontextualise them, with the aim of proving that oppositional and radical filmmaking is as diverse, colourful and lively as ever.
We welcome contributions from individuals and communities both inside and outside academia, from artists, activists, filmmakers, researchers, scientists and others.
Contributions may include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Video activism, Counter Cinema, Counter Publicity and Radical Film;
- Radical film as an artistic strategy;
- Forms of radical film activism and political agitation;
- Political filmmaking and ethical issues;
- Radical film cultures and future orientation(s);
- Creativity and innovation in radical film cultures;
- Radical aesthetics and politics;
- Global radical film cultures;
- Questions of inclusion/exclusion in radical film cultures;
- Collaborative and participative practices in radical film cultures;
- (Self)representation, identity and privacy in radical film cultures;
- Radical films and their distribution with digital technologies;

- Short lecture, film- or project presentation (6 min 40 s Pecha Kucha style)
