SEEN/UNSEEN: A Festival of Experimental Film
May 9-11, 2019 | State Fair Park
SEEN/UNSEEN: A Festival of Experimental Film immersed audiences in a curated selection of experimental films ranging from the early works of groundbreaking filmmakers Sara Kathryn Arledge, Maya Deren and Stan Brakhage to current works by established and emerging artists. Presenting a diverse sampler of experimental and avant-garde filmmaking styles, the festival invited guests to sit back, let go of their expectations and open themselves to enjoying cinema in new ways.
Each night culminated in a live-on-stage conversation or performance by some of our special guests: SEEN/UNSEEN curator Kim Voynar; filmmakers Vanessa Renwick, Sabine Gruffat and Brent Green; and musician Brendan Canty.
May’s Second Saturday (1-4 p.m. May 11) included free, family-friendly screenings as well as related activities.
