calibro 35 live @ cinema nova

Calibro 35 live @ Cinema Nova   calibro35covercr 120x120 news

Bringing you music from an era when Italy was still a free country…

The music of Calibro 35 is a delicious combination of original 60′s & 70′s theme songs and contemporary compositions of their own.

Last friday they performed live at Offscreen Film Festival. Accompanied by visuals, samples and outtakes from many obscure Italian genre films on Cinema Nova’s big silver screen, Calibro 35 gave us a memorable performance. Groovy as hell and psychedelically warped.

At our Offscreen 2009 page you can find a photographic impression of how it all went down… (scroll down to see pics). Alternatively, click on the more to see the pics.

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.
