Thinking it would be a a piece of cake giving every single film we watched at the 27th Brussels International Fantastic Film Festival a treatment on our site. I sure underestimated the amount of work that would go into this crazy idea. So it took a bit more time and effort than I at first anticipated to get this overview completed…

Kinoautomat: One Man and his House   kinoautomat bozar offscreen 2009cr 213x299 news

Kinoautomat is the first interactive movie whose plot and story are fully determined by the viewers. First shown during the world exhibition of 1967 in Montréal, “One Man and His House” was written and directed by members of the Czech new wave cinema as an effective satire of democracy. This, at the time, unique project allows the viewers to decide the course of events in the film by means of voting buttons.

Now, forty years later, the project has been restored for new viewing purposes. Offscreen Film festival, in collaboration with Bozar Cinema and the Czech Centre of Brussels will present this artistic hybrid, crossing film and performance, to Belgian audiences. Be part of it on the 7th of March.

More info, plot synopsis and new trailer can be found here.

Kinoautomat is part of Offscreen’s Interactive Cinema module, which also schedules a symposium on the phenomena, a tribute to William Castle and more.
