Since 2013, AG Kurzfilm and German Films have published a biennial program dedicated to young German experimental film. The organizers* aim to use the program to promote strongly artistic film and video art works that can be exploited not only at festivals, but also via the art market in museums or galleries.
In the 6th edition, a variety of different voices will have their say. Thus, a broad panorama of current young experimental film from Germany is presented. Central motifs of the 6th edition of the Emerging Artists program are origin, homeland, memory and belonging. Which events and memories shape people, which are reality, where does projection begin?
Of the seven filmmakers represented in the current edition, four have their roots in other countries - Israel, Brazil, Russia and Kazakhstan. They contribute their personal experiences in a way that environments of different countries complement and mix, thereby becoming visible in the films.
The jury for the 6th edition, which will premiere on January 14, 2023 as part of the Stuttgart Filmwinter, consisted of Anne Gaschütz (Co-Director FILMFEST DRESDEN), Hanna Schneider (Kurzfilm Festival Hamburg), Giovanna Thiery (Stuttgarter Filmwinter), Björn Schmitt (DFF - Deutsches Filminstitut & Filmmuseum, freelance curator) and Anne Turek (AG Kurzfilm).
