Experimenta 2015 is the artists’ moving image section of the BFI London Film Festival and is co-programmed with LUX. Curators of Experimenta are Benjamin Cook, William Fowler and Helen de Witt.
Experimenta screens films by artists from around the world that use the moving image to change the way we think of film and how it functions. The programme is accompanied by talks involving the artists. This year’s selection presents an astounding range of work from delicate archive programmes of Super8 films from the 1970s to the vision of a future apocalypse. These artists work in a variety of formats and styles to investigate not only the subject but the very medium itself, whether digital or celluloid, to challenge the distinction between form and content and to inspire us to new interpretations of our world and its construction through images
