Festival Report: Berwick Film and Media Arts Festival 2015

Berwick Logo

The ‘media arts’ aspect of Berwick marks it out as a bit different as a film festival (at least in terms of the film festivals I’ve been to so far) and the artists’ installations are placed in buildings / spaces of historical interest throughout the town – it’s a good excuse to explore the area, although I didn’t do as much wandering as last year. I’ve written a festival report for desistfilm focussed on the installations, short films and midlengthers – here. My overall favourite of the festival was Hacked Circuit (Deborah Stratman, 2014) but I’ll also be looking out for future films by Marko Grba Singh (Abdul & Hamza), Daphné Hérétakis (Archipels, granites dénudés), and Anna Sofie Hartmann (Limbo). My preview post on the festival now has the links to the films I reviewed.
