Film Fest Ghent will explore the cross-pollination between film and music at its 47th edition with VIDEODROOM 2020. In collaboration with Kunstencentrum Vooruit, the festival will present film classics such as Solaris, Koyaanisqatsi and The Shining while giving them a VIDEODROOM make-over. Live music concerts and performances will propose experimental perspectives on the film canon while offering unforgetable experiences.
The iconic Polish Radio Experimental Studio will kick-start VIDEODROOM this year. PRES was an artistic safe haven in Poland's turbulent 1960s, 1970s and 1980s. Inspired by this creative freedom, the artistic collective The Space Between started using the experimental output from the PRES. The result is SZUM (noise), a transmedia performance with futuristic synthesizer creations.
The Space Between is the collective of radio maker and sound artist Katharina Smets, photographer and video artist Ingrid Leonard and sound artist Inne Eysermans (Amatorski). In 2019 the trio was present at Vooruit with their personal project Land.
Due to the imposed corona measures, a maximum of 200 tickets are currently available for this performance. The presale for VIDEODROOM runs through Vooruit. Buy your tickets here!
This event takes place at Kunstencentrum Vooruit at 19h30. Doors open at 19h00.
