Academic Film Center, “Students’ City” Cultural Center

International festival of new film and video ALTERNATIVE FILM/VIDEO 2008 will take place in Students’ city Cultural center in the period of December 10/14, 2008. International competitive program was selected out of more than 300 applications from all over the world, by the Selection Committee: Danijela Purešević, Athanasia Panagea, Miodrag Milošević i Greg de Cuir.

Also, two special events will respond to the Memory theme: 50 years of Academic Film Center and +- 40 years: 1968-2008, the latter of which is a recollection of the student movements in 1968, which initiated the establishment of „Students’ City“ Cultural Center and also inspired artists in Belgrade and worldwide to create varied artistic and theoretical achievements.

The Jury of the Festival: Marina Kožul, Martijn Veldhoen i Srđan Keča, will select the films and videos which will be on this year’s list of significant achievements of the festival. Included among the awards will be the possibility to create a new film or video produced by AFC, with living accommodations provided by the Students’ City in Belgrade.

Ingrid Skovgaard

Danish/Norwegian artist, curator and cultural manager.

Works mainly with video art, but also with different medias such as sound, installations, photography, printmaking and drawing.

As an artist she has participated in several exhibitions in Denmark, Sweden, Latvia, Finland and England. In 2006 her video installation Cross Wide Out was nominated to Prix Möbius Nordica.

She has curated several exhibitions and events in Denmark and Sweden. Since 2007 she has been chairman of Fast Video – the association of Video art in Denmark.

Fast Video

Fast Video is an association for Video Art in Denmark, founded in 1999. With around 100 members, we represent video art expressions and productions in Denmark. Fast Video works as a platform for video art productions as well as an active link and intermediary between our members and national and international contemporary art-networks. Fast Video supplies artists working within these media with production facilities and equipment. Fast Video is, with its production space in Copenhagen, a platform for networking between artists working within the field of video art.

Video Waves from Denmark

The program ”Video Waves from Denmark” presents a selection of 13 different video art works of 13 different artists/artist groups from the significant Danish network of Fast Video.

The selection of works gives an impression of the broad spectrum of styles that exists within the genre of video art. Works from what is defined as more “traditional”, to works that moves within and flirts with the borderlands of other media and expressions such as e.g. dance films, music videos, documentaries, and installation art. Many of the works presents strong aesthetic qualities, though expressed very differently.

As an adjoined special guests program we have the honour of presenting Eva Koch and Jesper Just – two of the most significant and internationally known video artists from Denmark.

Eva Koch

Eva Koch is one of Denmark’s most significant and interesting video-artists. She exhibits actively in Denmark and around the world. In 2005 she represented Denmark at the Danish pavilion under the 51st  Venice Biennale, Italy.  Eva Koch’s works are often site-specific, installed in such a way as to relate actively to the space around them, and often with an interactive dimension.

Jesper Just

Probably the most significant film and video artist in Denmark today.

He has exhibits at places like Louisiana Museum of Modern Art (DK), Kunsthalle Vienna (Austria), Stedelijk Museum (The Netherlands), Kiasma Museum (Finland) and is represented at places such as: Tate London (UK), ARoS, Aarhus Art Museum (DK), Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Castilla y Léon (Spain) Music and drama play pivotal parts in Just’s videos. He employs extremely staged milieux and plots with striking allusions to Hollywood movies, operas, etc.

Kino klub Split

Kino klub Split (Cine Club Split) was founded on March 27, 1952. Activity of its members is publicly recognized as one of the basic points of Croatian non-professional and alternative cinematography. During the five decades of existence, over 300 films has been realized in production of Kino klub Split, and 276 of them on film formats. Today, following the footsteps of the predecessors, a new, fifth generation of authors is being formed. Mastering new video systems, they record in mini DV format, and work in non-linear digital editing,

Associations – ALTERNATIVE FILM/VIDEO 2007 video exhibition

· Resistance(s), Lowave

This DVD compilation includes eight films and videos from Middle Eastern and North African artists. It’s a

panorama of contemporary experimental creativity from this region of the world. As international travellers,

these filmmakers have forged together their identities out of the different cultures that they’ve encountered

through periods of migration and exile. Using images to lead the narrative, each artist succeeds in raising

fundamental questions relating to humanity, politics and aesthetics. Lowave is an independent DVD label

with the objective of discovering and promoting contemporary film and video art. Its ambition is to create a

new marketplace for the work of cutting-edge artists and filmmakers, under recognized by the traditional

distribution channels, by making them accessible to the public via the DVD format. With DVD,

experimental film can finally find an audience beyond the film festival circuit.

· Anabela Angelovska was born in Hildesheim, Germany in 1974. She presently lives and works as an

artist in Hamburg where she studied at the Academy of Fine Arts, and obtained an MA degree in Visual

Communication, majoring in film, media philosophy and scenarios of artistic practice where she also

obtained a post-graduate diploma in Visual Communication. In 2001  she co-founded for film, internet, literature and music projects and is member/curator of the

artist-run-space Hinterconti in Hamburg.

“Searching For The LOST Station”
The film came about in the context of the project “Lebensreformbewegungen”* (Life Reforms) as part of a

collaboration with the group “ A Not closer defined artist group from Hamburg”. The presentation poses the

question about the relationship between „off“ and „on“ culture and what possibilities, privileges and traps

exist in independent, alternative projects. Or, more simply: what is different when we do it our own way?

*“Lebensreformbewegungen” are various movements from the early twentieth century in Germany

(anarchist, nudist, vegetarians and such like), actually all those who wished to escape from the system

at the time.

· Jovana Tokić  & Lazar Bodroža

Visual artist, member of Kosmoplovci. In 2006 realised the fiction/animation film  „The Mountain Wreath“.

· Nation of Satan: Transforma Video and Live Recording of the Second Album


The most brutal, monstrous and aggressive sound system is the basis of this avant-garde or better said,

extra avant-garde demo that is without comprise or tenderness, scrupulously taking no prisoners. This

is the statement of both the artists, in this way crushing the differences between generations and the

media which separates them.

Bob Miloshevic & Johnny Rackovic
