AAVE Festival invites you to join our annual cavalcade of projections! The sixth edition celebrates the plurality of moving images by presenting films, video art, live performances and exhibitions. The warm-up event of the festival and the seminar on art & technology will be organized in The Finnish Museum of Photography.
Our program will start on Tuesday 7.4. with the exhibition openings at the galleries Oksasenkatu 11 and FISH. The exhibition Silence-Fiction will bring together two works by acclaimed artist MIKA TAANILA. In Cycles three artists, JUHA VAN INGEN, MARKO VUOKOLA and JANNE SÄRKELÄ will lead you to the cycles of images and sound. The day of the exhibition opening will turn into the NIGHT OF THE BEAMERS, a participatory pop-up event.
Our screening program highlights at cultural centre Malmitalo include the 35mm film screening of Aleksander by acclaimed Polish visual artist and filmmaker WILHELM SASNAL and ANKA SASNAL. The small retrospective of Finnish artist DAVE BERG and two celebrated stereoscopic films by Italian ZAPRUDER FILMMAKERSGROUP are accompanied by the anthology film 3X3D (JEAN-LUC GODARD, PETER GREENAWAY and EDGAR PÊRA).
