Almost Cinema 2008

20 Sep 2008
Vooruit Arts Centre and the Ghent Film Festival join forces for Almost Cinema: a twelve-day programme during which Vooruit presents its unique vision on cinema. Almost Cinema starts where traditional film stops. The featured artists are influenced by the cinematic medium but leave the beaten track, opting for new unknown paths instead.
Just like the last three years we have designed an installation trail, allowing you to explore the whole Vooruit building from top to bottom. You'll also be able to enjoy theatre and dance performances, music documentaries, (audiovisual) concerts, a conference and talks about (almost) cinema. As always, we'll celebrate the end of the festival with a free party. This year we bring you installations by Ulf Langheinrich, Boris Debackere, Doris Kuwert, Ali Momeni and Alexandra Dementieva, performances by Siegmar Zacharias, a concert by Clint Mansell, who scores Darren Aronofsky's films, and a special evening with Arne Sierens, member of the festival jury. Check out pictures and video from last year and get into the Almost Cinema mood: More info, pictures, audio and video on
