About This Screening

The 1960s and 1970s were groundbreaking decades in which independent filmmakers challenged cinematic convention. In England, much of the innovation took place at the London Film-Makers' Co-operative, an artist-led organization that enabled filmmakers to control every aspect of the creative process. LFMC members conducted an investigation of celluloid that echoed contemporary developments in painting and sculpture. During this same period, British filmmakers also made significant innovations in the field of "expanded cinema", creating multi-screen projections, film environments and live performance pieces. The physical production of a film (its printing and processing) became integral to its form and content as Malcolm Le Grice, Lis Rhodes, Peter Gidal and others explored the material and mechanics of cinema, making radical new works that contributed to a new visual language. The London Film-Makers' Co-operative, established in 1966, grew from a film society at the heart of London’s sixties counterculture to become Europe's largest distributor of experimental cinema and was recognized internationally as a major centre for avant-garde film.
