Lab Reps & Filmmakers To Convene At The Foot Of Pikes Peak

TIE's upcoming festival (November 20-24, 2013)  seeks  to invigorate and
connect artist-run film labs while advancing the dialogue on contemporary
screen culture and moving-image media. TIE has always been committed to
providing exposure and resources to artists working at the fringes of
contemporary screen culture, helping to connect and support those whose
investigations into the practices of celluloid continue to prove that it is
a medium with vital and inexhaustible potential for human expression and
social critique. Our upcoming series of activities and associated
literature seek to challenge the conception of film as an outmoded form of
artistic representation, and to counteract the consequent closure of access
to mainstream film labs and technologies that this thinking has occasioned.
Rather than viewing this state of affairs as unfortunate, TIE sees a
tremendous opportunity for those concerned to fully appropriate the means
of filmic production for themselves, and to do so in a way that is
inclusive and revolutionary, to quote Nicolas Rey, “As the moving picture
industry gradually abandons the film medium, the equipment, the knowledge,
the practices migrate into artists’ hands.”

TIE's five-day festival, dedicated exclusively to artist-run film labs and
held at Edith Kinney Gaylord Cornerstone Arts Center, Colorado College,
will be organized into individual film programs from each film lab. In
addition to the exhibition of outstanding work from each collective,
several of the filmmakers will be in attendance to answer questions and
contribute to the development of the dialogue. Lectures, receptions, panel
discussions, a photo exhibit, installations and workshops will also be
featured. The festival aims to be a meeting place for these different
experimental film labs and the general public, to foster the transmission
of knowledge and experience cross-culturally.

Included among the slew of workshops are Chromaflex – experimental colour
with Richard Touhy (who is assisting in organizing the festival/conference)
and Cinematographe: The Hand Cranked Filmwith Kevin Rice. Nicolas Rey and
Vassily Bourikas will be curating and presenting programs among several
others from across the globe.

The festival/conference is open to the public with attendees from across
the U.S. and abroad. More information on registration and fee schedule will
be announced shortly.
