Experimental Film Festival Process is taking place from 22nd to 25th March 2018 in Riga, Latvia. The festival is dedicated to analog cinema, celebrating the physical medium of film in all its personal, adventurous and uncompromising forms. The first of a kind in the Baltics, for the second time Process will provide four days of film screenings, expanded cinema performances, lectures, discussions, and other events.
This year the festival is focusing on alternative possibilities of perception, expression and co‑existence, looking for ways to establish independent territories outside of the accustomed patterns of action and thought.
The festival will have three open call programmes: Fear, selected by Rouzbeh Rashidi (IE/IR) and Maximilian Le Cain (IE), Resistance, selected by Erik Martinson (CA/LV), Introspection, selected by Lāsma Bērtule (LV), and three curated programmes: Baltic Experimental curated by Ieva Balode (LV), Experimental Film Society programme from Ireland's filmmaker's collective curated by Rouzbeh Rashidi (IR/IE), and Retrospection programme curated by Dāvis Sīmanis (LV) and Jānis Putniņš (LV).
Apart from screenings, in expanded cinema programme Process Expanded artists will perform their works live, interacting with the projector, light, space and sound, thus inviting the viewer to extend the notions of film making, showing and viewing. There will be performances by Distruktur (DE/BR), Gaëlle Rouard (FR), Atoosa Pour Hosseini (IE/IR), Adriana Vila and Luis Macías (ESP).
The festival will close with a screening of feature film „Muito Romântico” by Berlin-based Brazilian cinema duo Distruktur which had its premiere in the 66th Berlin International Film Festival.
