Cinema Camp

Welcome to the nature
Welcome to the cinema
Welcome to the Cinema Camp “Welcome to the Anthropocene”
Anthropocene is the subject of this year’s Cinema Camp as well as the geological epoch upon which the planet has recently entered. It is a new page in the history of our planet, characterized by unlimited exploitation of the Earth for the purposes of mankind, and by the fact that human activity has reached the scale of natural cataclysm itself.
Reacting to ecological and political situation of today, this year’s Cinema Camp invites to reflect the connection between the planet and the human in the era in Anthropocene, and to discuss topics such as film ecology, sensory etnography, cinematic representation of nature and animal lives as well as animality of the film medium itself.
We hope that the event will provide a discussion space for/with filmmakers, artists and theoreticians who creatively examine conditions of the Anthropocene and practice cinematic encounters with non-human worlds. This kind of discussions are more timely than ever, so lets watch films and involve ourselves into conversations with filmmakers, film thinkers and philosophers.
The list of participants giving talks and showing their films includes Denis Côté (Canada, https://vimeo.com/deniscotecinema), Ben Rivers (U.K., http://www.benrivers.com/ ), Pawel Wojtasik (http://www.pawelwojtasik.com/works.html), Emilija Škarnulytė (https://www.emilijaskarnulyte.co), Joshua Bonnetta (https://vimeo.com/user4334971), Rugilė Barzdžiukaite, Timothy Morton (http://ecologywithoutnature.blogspot.lt/), Akvilė Anglickaitė, Audronė Žukauskaitė, Tiago de Luca (https://www2.warwick.ac.uk/fac/arts/film/staff/deluca/), Mindaugas Survila (http://www.sengire.lt/en/), Aistė Žegulytė, Lukas Brašiškis, Narius Kairys, among others.
