Sabrina Ratté 

“Experiment IV” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aUkb1v13g-k

Sabrina’s work is exciting and dynamic, across analogue and digital video, exploring depth of the surface and pulsations of subliminal screen ephemera. 

Lucinda Clutterbuck

Lucinda Clutterbuck is one of Australia’s foremost contemporary animators and animation producers. She was awarded a film makers fellowship in 2005 by the Australian Film Commission in recognition of her skills and significant body of work. Her short animation “Pressure Sway” for the band Machinations (1983) is an incredible exploration of creative design, movement and the interaction of images to music.

Agnès Varda

Agnes is an inspiration, and an unconscious collaborator within our festival here on the island. Her work ranges from the wildly cinematic (Cleo from 5 to 7) to the autobiographical and reflective (The Gleaners and I). Varda’s focus on female experiences, rural and urban senses of place, one’s own personal history, and the nature of luck and chance are of enduring interest.

Hito Steyerl

“Detrás de… Circulacionismo”

 Hito’s work investigates economies of the digital image world as a metamodernist translation of savvy people power. 

Maya Deren

Maya is mysterious, a truly unique force. Her films act as a fusion of art and film, portraying her unique vision. Her collected writings express the celebration of the Amateur over the looming sceptre of the Auteur in film, and we look to her for daily inspiration.

These artists create generous, personal cinema as affective contemporary mythology.
