The Bradford International Film Festival has put together quite the lineup for its 19th edition running from April 11 through 21.
Among the highlights is a tribute to Austria’s sixpackfilm featuring not only the UK premiere of Peter Schreiner’s Fata Morgana (you may remember Daniel Kasman and Adrian Martin‘s pieces on the film when it premiered in Rotterdam) but also the UK premiere of shorts by the likes of Kurt Kren, Peter Kubelka, Mara Mattuschka, Valie Export, Peter Tscherkassky, Norbert Pfaffenbichler, Johann Lurf, and Siegfried A. Fruhauf.
There’ll also be a focus on Russian filmmaker Alexei Balabanov, with screenings of Cargo 200 (2007), Stoker (2010), and Me Too (2012), and a celebration of the 100th anniversary of Indian cinema, with screenings of Manjeet Singh’s Mumbai’s King and Deepa Dhanraj’s newly restored documentary What Happened to This This City? (1986).
Screening as part of the Uncharted States of America VII program will be a restoration of Paula Gladstone’s The Dancing Soul of the Walking People (1980), plus James Benning’s One Way Boogie Woogie 2012, Sometimes City and the experimental short Alfredo by Tom Jarmusch (Jim’s older brother), Mike Ott‘s Pearblossom Hwy, and David Fenster’s Pincus.
And that’s just scratching the surface. You’ll find more titles and details here.
