“Cine Trans Europe is a partnership between five European film festivals, which has the objective of promoting a cinéma de difference, a cinema that unites the complex and enigmatic with a fondness for experimentation, which rebels against standards, norms and stereotypes” – Dieter Wieczorek (Festival Signes de Nuit, Paris).
The participating festivals are: Signes de Nuit, Paris; European Media Arts Festival, Osnabrück; L’Alternativa Independent Film Festival, Barcelona; Film Experience, Amsterdam and Corona Cork Film Festival.
In this special programme, each festival has nominated films to best represent their particular taste in experimental filmmaking.
In Cork, our Free Radicals programme is dedicated to this kind of work.
Dieter Wieczorek, creator of Cine Trans Europe, will introduce the screening.
