One of our festival’s distinct missions is to demonstrate the potential of Live Cinema in all of its manifestations. The expressions of Live Cinema range from the live soundtrack to VJing but there are other vivid forms from film-based performances, camera obscura and the magic lantern to live multimedia performance, real-time live visuals and liquid light shows, just to mention a few. In the opening of the festival Hannu Karjalainen combines his folktronic music project with moving images. This year we have several film-based performances in our programme. Bruce McClure (US) uses modificated 16mm film projectors creating the absolute music of light and sound.
Sami van Ingen’s 35mm film performance Primaries is accompanied with a soundscape played live by Petri Kuljuntausta and Henri Lindström. In the dialogical presentation of Marek Pluciennik (PL/CA/FI) and musician James Andean (CA/FI) the film is treated by melting, burning and with methods of digital manipulation. The live-performance Exposures by Tuomo Rainio and lecture performance on Laterna Magica by Laura Minici Zotti (IT) in our Side Events –programme are far away from each other historically but bringing both of them in our festival program helps to understand the links between the pre- and post-cinematic condition.
