Film | Oberhausen Artist Film


Saturday, Sep 30, 2017 - Time: 7:30pm - 8:45am
Oberhausen Film festival is among the "25 coolest film festivals in the world" and each year receives around 5,000 entries from about 90 countries. For the last ten years they have toured a selection of the winning films as well material from their archive. To mark Somerset Art Weeks, this evening’s programme features work from the ‘Artist’s Film’ category and the artists: Salla Tykka Finland Moha Modisaking South Africa Somebody, Nobody GB Hayoun Kwon France Volker Schreiner Germany Ieva Epnere Latvia Running time 1 hr 15 mins Certificate: TBC "These six works between Black Box and White Cube present very special personal perspectives on expansiveness, landscape and memory while making use of quite unusual aesthetics and techniques. Some of the filmmakers and artists represented have already shown their works successfully in galleries and art exhibitions all over the world, including at the Venice Biennale. Overall, this set of works, some of them award-winning, give viewers an impression of the current state of international media art. The programme also impressively demonstrates how Oberhausen has long since “positioned itself at the intersection to the visual arts, moving incrementally to the arts side” (Frankfurter Rundschau, May 2016). The International Short Film Festival Oberhausen is, much like the city it resides in, a secret treat. All in all, the festival is a prevailing certification and a confirmation of brighter days ahead for its unconventional desire to take a closer look at the artistic work that others would never dare to consider displaying.     MUBI Notebook, USA, June 2016

Our latest work

Our latest news

Our latest news

Over the past 15 years, from a start-up investment of just £5000, Somerset Film has generated over £4,500,000 investment for creative media arts in Somerset, having commissioned and employed over 200 arts and media professionals.

Our films have won awards from Canada to Croatia, and have been shown at festivals around the world…

We work with people of all ages, backgrounds and abilities, prioritising those at risk of social or physical isolation or exclusion. Not just in Bridgwater, but right across Somerset with projects like Family Connections and Capture Burnham, and recently our satellite Pop-up initiative.

We also work with and train artists (of all disciplines) and businesses, in a predominantly rural setting, to develop ways to communicate more effectively and flourish using the internet and new digital technology.
