ABOUT THE CAMP
Cinema Camp is an International summer event in nature organized by “Meno avilys”, seeking to create the space for an informal dialogue about cinema. Here, film screenings are followed by discussions with filmmakers, film academics read specially prepared lectures, campers take part in creative workshops. Participants can also take a rest by the lake, and dance in the evenings.
Since 2010, the themes of the Camp were: "The boundaries of cinema genres", "Cinema and Freedom", "Cinema and History", "Cinema and Sound", "Cinema and the Body", "Cinema and Politics", "Cinema Eye", “Welcome to Anthropocene".
This year’s Camp is all about “Imperfect Cinema”. But what is it? “Imperfection” might relate to the process of creation, when filmmakers break established rules searching for unconventional language of their own. It could be born on the film set under artificial lights or on the street where everyone can be an actor. It might also be related to the materiality of cinema such as scratched films or glitched videos. Generally, imperfect cinema embodies the opposition to imposed norms, control, and power structures. But then, how do marginal cinema movements start, and how do independent filmmakers, deliberately turning away from the constricting financial mechanisms, work?
We will look for the answers to all of these questions and much more in the Cinema Camp.
