On the Edge ,

It's not just the film festival that's blowing out candles - Art Cinema OFFoff is celebrating its 10th anniversary too! The Ghent cinema for experimental films goes 'extramural' with a spectacular programme, as it does every year during the film festival. Ten years ago, the founders of OFFoff organised 'De Langste Nacht van de Experimentele Film' ('The longest night of experimental film'). Now, ten years later, OFFoff is hosting another night programme with screenings, live performances, a party and a real peep show.
?Children can enjoy a show at 6 p.m. that was created during the Experimental Kids workshops. In addition, actress Katrijn Van Bouwel is presenting the graphic story Lapscheure by Kolja Aertgeerts. The evening programme includes expanded cinema performances by Unter & Hyperbang (FR), Floris Vanhoof (BE) & Makino Takashi (JP) and Piotr Tolmachov (BE/RUS). They explore the boundaries of the medium with their live 'bombardments' of projection and sound. Also included in OFFoff's programme is the newly restored copy of the avant-garde classic The Seashell and the Clergyman (1928) by Germaine Dulac. Mathieu Serruys is recording a brand-new soundtrack during the show, which will be brought out through his Smeltkop label. Jef Cuypers (Faceneck, Possessed Factory) and Stef Heeren (Kiss the Anus of a Black Cat) will then experiment during the screening of Couch (1964) by Andy Warhol. In this obscure film from the MOMA collection, cult heroes such as Allen Ginsberg and Jack Kerouac get naked on the legendary sofa in the Factory. We will alternately show original and quirky work from Ghent's young talents in 'Jonge Zwervers' ('Young tramps'). After midnight, you can hit the dancefloor or... sneak into our peep show with the most amazing experimental erotica!
