For its 12th edition, which will be held between May 28 and June 6, (S8) Mostra Internacional de Cinema Periférico returns to the movie theaters with renewed strength while keeping a dual online/on-site format, offering, for another year, a comprehensive selection of online contents devoted to contribute to the dissemination of cinema. For 2021, the festival has curated a program that brings together some of the most stimulating names in the contemporary scene of experimental cinema. (S8)’s 12th edition will gather together remarkable well-established personalities and young, emergent filmmakers from around the world, among which will be Deborah S. Phillips (Germany), James Edmonds (UK), Tomonari Nishikawa (Japan), and Bruno Delgado Ramo (Spain).
This program closes with a solo section devoted to the young Sevillian filmmaker Bruno Delgado Ramo, who was the latest artist to be granted the BAICC scholarship for artists-in-residence (a collaborative initiative by (S8), the Spanish agency for culture –AC/E, and Toronto’s LIFT). This year, the festival brings to us a selection of films, a film performance, and an installation by the author, all of which explore the processes and mechanisms of filmmaking and film projections.
AC/E collaborates in this edition supporting the Festival through the PICE Programme, organizing with the Festival the project Val del Omar. El cine como elemento and supporting a new call of the Residency at Lift 2022.
