In its third, renewed edition, Festival of Experimental Film and Video – [X]FEFV, presents recent exeperimental film and video art production enriched by other genre and style hybrids. In relation to the previous selection which took place on an open air site [Trg Kamplin, Krk], thus creating a specific ambient in the heart of the old city center, this year’s Festival took on an indoor cinema character, taking place in Art Kino Croatia, Rijeka. Festival’s program can also be watched on I-KRK, specialized city cable tv channel [unfortunately, available only to the citizens of Krk].

Beside the change in venue, this year’s edition features another significant change. The program is a triptych, the first part of which is made of the most creative works from 2012, the second part a selection from 2011, while the longest, third part, is a chice of about hundred works that entered the competition, which gives a substantial insight into interesting relevant trends of contemporary experimental film and video production.

Along side with a few domestic experimental filmmaker [Andrea Kustić, Unicorn Semiotics], this year’s festival gathered authors from Poland, Great Britain, Ukraine, Germany, USA, Iran, Spain, Greece, Romania, Turkey, Russia, Portugal and Belgium.

Within a repertoire of video-audio explorations, works have to be mentioned which were, given their quality, inventivness in their approach to all levels of video texture and unique visual sensibility, selected as visually and conceptually most complete.

These are: Color Invention, a work by young Polish author Piotr Krzymowski, who in subtle, highly aestheticized manner
introduces us to the metaphysics of color; and Sun-down, a work by Iranian author Hamed Sahihi, whose short meditative representation of an idyll on the shores of Caspian Lake ends with an unexpected fantasy.

Along side with the short-length and mid-length works, festival program features one feature-length film. Four Roses by a Belgian filmmaker Kris De Meester, recalling early Jarmusch, represents an outstanding example of independent cinematography. Through its black-and-white patina, this De Meesters drama introduces us to twelve characters trapped within their hotel rooms, literally killing time, thus forming an ideal framework for exploration of isolation, interaction and being itself.

This year’s Festival of Experimental Film and Video was organized and the works were selected by Art & Culture Laboratory [KUL], non-profit organization created with the goal of promotion and development of independent cultural and artistic expression and public activity.
