“Cinema Perpetuum Mobile” Short Films

1 lomi lomi_3Thursday 25th May 2017, “Cinema Perpetuum Mobile” Short Films. Volkseten Vegazulu, 7pm. Short films from 9pm.

Cinema Perpetuum Mobile (CPM) is an annual international short film festival. Founded in 2011 in Minsk (Belarus) by a cinephile community Kinaklub.org. CPM sticks to its goals:
– promoting films by young and independent Belarusian authors in Belarus and internationally
– searching for new forms and tendencies in cinema on the edge of amateur and professional film-making;
– exploring social issues via cinematographic language
– develop and strengthen connections between film-makers and film-making communities all around the world

Cinema Perpetuum Mobile reaches the audience not only in Belarusian regions and cities, but in other countries as well. It is you who help us bring independent cinema to more and more people, and our community is growing due to the principles we incorporate in our mission: decentralization (horizontal structure of the festival), self-organization (volunteer basis, grassroot initiative), transparency (possibility to join the community at any time, and contribute to festival organization).

At the 6th festival of Cinema Perpetuum Mobile will show 12 programs of short films from around the world. The main Belarusian program includes 3 documentary and 6 gaming works created by young independent authors over the past year. In addition to the traditional genre competition sections (game, documentary, experimental cinema, animation), the organizers prepared two sets of works at the junction of various types of art: multimedia, social networks, video blogging and computer technologies.

For the second time at the festival there will be a Visual Music show devoted to audiovisual works from around the world. This year the organizers decided to experiment and collected a selection of Belarusian works synthesizing video, photography, blogging and clip culture and performance.
