ABOUT THE CAMP
The Cinema Camp is an annual four-day long summer event organized by Meno Avilys Film Center based in Vilnius, Lithuania seeking to create the space for an informal dialogue around moving-image cultures. Believing in the potentiality of communal energy, every summer we invite filmmakers, film programmers, as well as film critics and scholars to stay together and discuss moving-image art-related themes. During the event, film screenings are usually followed by discussions with filmmakers, academics deliver specially prepared presentations, guests take part in creative workshops, reading groups and radio cinema sessions. Thus the idea behind the CCamp is to establish a vivid cross-disciplinary platform for the international moving-image art community to meet and watch films as well as discuss them without the usual confines of film festivals and academic conferences. Each year, the curatorial team chooses a specific theme. The Limits of Film Genres, Cinema and Freedom, Cinema and History, Cinema and Sound, Cinema and the Body, Cinema and Politics, Kino Eye, Welcome to Anthropocene, and Imperfect Cinema were the themes of the CCamp since 2010.
Participants of this year’s Cinema Camp are invited to critically approach the representations of gender and sexuality on screen and power relations that control them. The program will showcase films which creatively explore these topics, focus on queer and feminist cinema and its makers. In addition to the historical perspective of “electrified identities” on the screen, we will draw attention to the reflection of gender dynamics and transgender issues in contemporary cinema. As usual, the CCamp will be attended by both emerging and acknowledged experimental filmmakers connecting points between social activism and the art of moving image.
Electrified: thrilling or excited; bodies able to attract others are electrified, they're electrified by touching + Identity: self-perception socially constructed environment and setting for relationships, the determinant of behavior and decisions = Electrified Identities: search for projections of moving images that thrill and shudder self-perceptions critically and creatively suggesting to rethink the norms of gender and sexuality, partnerships and social behavior.
