Film. Art. Berwick.
One of the UK’s leading festivals for new cinema and artists’ moving image, it runs over a dynamic four days where fresh artistic voices develop and audiences hungry for complex and challenging art are nurtured. Among the good stuff you can see this year are the UK premiere of Shireen Seno’s second feature film ‘Nervous Translation’ (pictured). Described by the New Yorker as “among the best recent evocations of a child’s life and thought” it has received great critical acclaim. Also on board are John Torres (one of the most vital figures in New Philippine Cinema), US artist Sky Hopinka (the festival will have the first major UK presentation of his work), a new commission and collaboration between Turner-prize nominated Luke Fowler and acclaimed musician and sound recordist Chris Watson, and work from artist in resident Lucy Clout.
