September 8th and October 1st 2017
Cinema ARTA Arad
This year's event will be held between September 8th and October 1st in Arad, Romania at "Cinema Arta". A group exhibition of site-specific installations forms the core of the festival, while a series of screenings, talks and performances are being planned alongside. Currently at its 4th edition, the festival seeks to support emerging artists with a focus on media and multi-media.
The theme of the festival is... simply put... cinema and cinematics. The installations and screenings are intended to take over, populate, (even colonise?) the cinema halls by day, and haunt them by night. Cinema + Art(a) can indeed sound like a pacifist nom-de-guerre, as sophisticated as it is banal. It will implicate the spectators, make them accomplices, ambush them, catch them by surprise.
