We are pleased to announce the 3rd edition of Sheffield Fringe in collaboration with Bloc Projects & Bloc Studios in Sheffield, UK.
The 3rd edition of Sheffield Fringe considers the critical possibilities of film as both documentary and art. This year’s programme traces back through the film co-op movement of the 80s, and earlier experimental film in continuous dialogue with new documentary practices.
Charlotte Ginsborg’s Over the Bones launches Sheffield Fringe 2013, as the opening salvo of a curatorial mix tape that positions artists’ film as musical. The remarkable Sheffield Media Unit archive (1984-89), affirms Sheffield as a centre of both resistance and serious play. In tribute to Michael Grigsby, Living on the Edge (1987) reveals the impact of the Thatcher era on three families, counterbalancing the exuberance Sheffield Media Unit. Urban Observations, guest curated this year by November Paynter, presents videos that work with performance, recital and gathering to share very specific and diverse tales of Istanbul and beyond. Annexinema are showing George Barber ‘s I was once involved in a shit show, Peter Kubelka’s Afrikareise and more + Live A/V performances by Neil Webb, Ron Wright, Rob Barker, Joe Moran & guests.
Friday 14th June 6pm & Saturday 15th June 12-9pm
