Filmform News: New Swedish Film and Video Art

Filmform News is a selection of works recently added to Filmform the Art Film and Video Archive which distributes films in Sweden and abroad. The programme is composed to show how interesting Swedish video art of today is, especially the strong position that women have in this area.

The first part of the programme gives proof that experimental film is anything but dead! Stefan Otto and Petra Lindholm are already established video artists, whose fantastic videos have reached far outside Swedens borders. Veteran BOELLAs (Boel Zetterman) Twin Performance and Sami Liselotte Wajstedts Koltloop take us away from the city and out into the wilderness.

The second part of the programme contains animations made with a wide variety of techniques. Here, Tilda Lovells dolls meet Gustav Sparrs computer pictures and J Tobias Andersons obsession with cinema classics. We enter a world of playfulness and absurd humour.

Filmform is the oldest organisation in Sweden for distribution and keeping of art film and video. The foundation Filmform was founded in 1950 (under a different name) in Stockholm and soon became a forum for well-known Swedish artists and authors, e g Öyvind Fahlström, Rut Hillarp, Pontus Hultén, Carl Fredrik Reuterswärd, PO Ultvedt, Hans Nordenström, Peter Weiss and others. The group’s main objective was to produce and screen experimental film. With the aid of these artists, art film made its definite breakthrough in Sweden. Filmform collaborates with organisations and individuals like museums, filmmakers, artists, art schools, galleries and festivals.
