eAmi presents: OPEN MEETING
OPEN MEETING is an Open Panel Discussion on the theme of 'Artist Moving Image in Edinburgh' and the proposals that:
Edinburgh Artist Moving Image, or eAmi, is an initiative to bring together makers, writers, audiences, critics and curators in a critical dialog and creative forum
eAmi aims to consider the relationship of artist moving image to the diverse array of venues and spaces for screening within the City of Edinburgh.
eAmi looks to encourage and facilitate a mentor lead approach for those engaging in the production, presentation or consideration of artist moving image.
eAmi will try to meet in a range of City venues and reflect on the diverse approaches and possibilities in emerging artist moving image nationally and internationally.
Moving Image Makers Collective Screening
67m, plus 15m Q&A
The Moving Image Makers Collective, a filmmaking group of thirty members, presents a uniquely cinematic vision of grassroots creative renewal in the Scottish Borders. Formed early in 2015 and working across the Borders region, the group has produced over thirty short to medium length films over the last year. While exploring processes of collaborative working, group critique and individual practice these filmmakers also explore diversity across themes, forms and techniques; from folklore to punk aesthetics, from realism to luminous abstraction. The films in this programme have been selected by Lydia Beilby, short film programmer for Edinburgh International Film Festival.
