Filmouflage Screening - Bangkok

Jam -

Ended 23 August 2015
Free
Jam

A selection of shorts from new filmakers and students in Colombia curated by Filmouflage. Free Screening.

Filmouflage, is a DIY film screening project that supports the exchange of short films and video art between Berlin (where we are based) and other countries. During the last three years, we have mostly supported an exchange with Colombia, receiving hundreds of films under the format of "less than 15 minutes". This year, we've had the opportunity of also connecting with Sweden and Chile and we are happy to be now in Thailand doing our first screening thanks to the support of Jam. 

Our main purpose is to make this artistic, political and cultural exchange a learning process through which a bridge between countries is constructed. 

We are making our best in making a Filmouflage Thailand/South East Asia screening in Berlin possible, which is why we are searching for audiovisual producers that wish to participate in this exchange worldwide. If you are interested in sending us your work. Please contact us at [email protected] filmouflage.tumblr.com
