Live Cinema ain’t dead.

I went to see AVANT Live Cinema and I wish you had too. Live, wow. Done, gone. That sort of thing.

Avantfilm.se is the no-budget experimental film festival that happens every off the beaten map in Karlstad, Sweden. This was edition n.10, all organized by the indefatigable film studies prof. John Sundholm.

In the past Gunvor Nelson, Bruce McClure and other avant-gardists have treated the audience to rare personal films.

Here are a few moving images from this year’s magical Live Cinema happening.
