Videoex Experimental Film & Video Festival Date: 21 - 29 May

During nine days, Videoex presents in its 24th edition more than 150 international and Swiss works. In addition to the extensive competition, it curates retrospectives, special programs, discussions and a supporting program of live acts and installations. Various workshops will introduce adults as well as children and young people to the medium of film. From Switzerland, we will be showing the experimental and Super 8 films of Zurich filmmaker Anka Schmid, which were made in the turbulent 1980s, as part of the CH Focus. Artist and this year's Artist Focus Rosa Barba creates sculptural, bizarrely beautiful images of human inscriptions in nature. For the Artist Specials, three artists will be represented at the festival: Lawrence Abu Hamdan makes forensic hearing visible, Neïl Beloufa tells of content decomposition and colonialism by means of a formal break with cinematic conventions, and Basma Alsharif interweaves geopolitical landscapes such as her native Palestine with human existence. While the Swiss and International Competitions provide a representative snapshot of experimental filmmaking, the major guest program Arab Wave is dedicated to the artistic and cinematic works of the Arab Mediterranean.
