    This recurring series features works that cross formal and conceptual boundaries and identifies both foundational and emerging figures in these practices. Hybrid documentaries, essay films, artist’s moving image and their makers will be given proper attention and spotlight. This edition features the playful yet incisive work of Tulapop Saenjaroen and Meriam Bennani, two of the most exciting moving image artists working today who investigate and illustrate digital culture and its impact on our contemporary condition. The programmes Tulapop Saenjaroen: Was It You in My Head? and Meriem Bennani: Life on the CAPS Trilogy will be screened from late February 2023, and a post-screening talk with Saenjaroen will be held on 4 March 2023.

A Room with a Coconut View has won the Promotional Award of the International Competition from 22.Internationale Kurzfilmtage Winterthur!!

Here’s the jury statement:

” The International Jury Promotional Award goes to an original and creative talent for his unique and innovative approach, and his interrogation of both the image and its narrative construct, the filmmaker’s humorous and imaginative style examines the intersections between history, technology, time, and mise-en-scene whilst also asking the audience to consider the role of critical inquiry in contemporary art and life. The international jury are unanimous in awarding this film and excited to see future work from the filmmaker.”
