SHORT FILM DJing
Saturday the 11th of November 22:00h
Venue: The Green. Plaza de los Santo Niños.
In his 2008 essay entitled Remix, the co-founder of the Creative Commons organisation and Harvard Professor, Lawrence Lessig, defined our era as the one of the Culture of Reading/Writing in the sense that we no longer just consume content issued by the power elites but rather, thanks to the democratisation of editing and production media, we are increasingly remixing them to create something new. At this year’s festival, marked by a focus on the most immediate present, we would like to invite academics, filmmakers and artists of various origins and generations to come on stage and borrow for one night some of the most singular short films to have visited ALCINE, in order to propose their reinterpretation with a new soundtrack created live based on our own rhythms and those of others. When all is said and done, programmers and disc-jockeys are equipped with the same ability and taste to select content; a high-end format to be enjoyed from down below as they are transformed into “Short-film DJs”. We already tested this format after its creation at ALCINE 37, when we invited International DJs to mix music and short films. And now we are bringing it back at a venue that brings the worlds of music and cinema together: the Alcalá de Henares venue The Green was once a cinema (the panoramic screen is still there) and is now a concert venue and bar.
