New dates and format for the forthcoming Artists’ Moving Image Festival (AMIF). Co-programmed by Tako Taal and Adam Benmakhlouf the festival will take place across the course of 2021, beginning online screenings from 21st to 24th January and followed by a series of online events, scheduled to follow the lunar calendar across the rest of the year and available to view from any location online.
GIVE BIRTH TO ME TOMORROW extends what was a weekend festival across eleven months, first inviting audience members to see an introductory selection of works online before participating in a full programme of virtual screenings and events.
The programme lies in between the folds of artists’ moving image, performance documentation, protest documentary and animation, considering their strategies for interruption, to undo the formal and psychological trappings of a neo-colonial, white supremacist, capitalist, patriarchal cinema system.
The full programme, screening times and a booking link will be released on LUX Scotland website: https://luxscotland.org.uk/
