Several titles distributed by Filmform will be part of the programme Experi-Mentalities at the 2021 edition of Pori Film Festival. The event will take place between 25-28 November and the programme has been curated by Timo Menke.
The combined screening and installation program Experi–Mentalities for Pori film festival 2021 is proposing an intersectional mix of circus, hideout and laboratory as a hybrid cinematic space for experimentation and experimentality. Rather than a black box, Experi-Mentalities stages closed and open spaces with a diversity of moving image works from the Swedish film region featuring illusions, prototypes and stunts, as well as failures, mishaps and dysfunctions. The experi-mental approach brings together elements of experiment and mentality in the sense of cinema as an ongoing trial and error, hypothesis and proof – from experimental procedures adopted from the natural sciences, exploratory approaches in filmmaking, and the testing of new forms of social organisation, while playing with the “experimental” as historical genre of art and film. The rationale of the institutionally controlled experiment is set against or within retinal experiments and mental explorations, confronting the all-too-known and unknown, searching for new realities, truths and futures leading to different or enigmatic forms of knowledge.
