Halloween Short Film Festival Selection
Curated by Philip Ilson
Halloween Short Film Festival present a selection of short films that fit the Halloween ‘remit’ – films that are unexpected, take chances, don’t play by the rules. This selection covers all bases, from lo-budget quirkiness to glossy special effects, from animation to documentary, from filmmaker experiments to confidence in ideas. These shorts truly bring death to the genre as they rise phoenix like from the flames in all their glory – beware the projector with teeth!

Line Describing a Cone
By Anthony McCall
UK, 1973, silent, B&W, 30 mins, 16mm
Filmbase Thursday/Friday/Saturday and Sunday
Described by the artist as a ‘solid light film’, this film-installation questions the traditional film limitations eliminating the screen in favor of the primacy of the projection event. It draws attention to the projector’s cone of light interacting with the physical presence of the audience.

YouTube Salon
The YOUTUBE SALON is set up for any user to vision mix between streaming Youtube videos. It is the perfect opportunity to showcase your own favourite online videos and an excuse to express yourself through the creation of a live mash-up of audio and video, creating and rearranging works into a live video stream controlled by a single user that evades rational analysis, but allowing subtle new meanings emerging from the chaos of Youtube's immense video library.
