public Seminars and Events

The School  of Cinema is a place for film mediation. On offer are paedagogical workshops and academic seminars which are accompanied by film screenings at the cinema. Partners of the cooperation are Department 9, University of Bremen / Workgroup Film and Media Aesthetics as well as the Communal Cinema / CITY 46. Shows are open to anyone interested, either on a continuous basis or for singular programmes.

School of Vision

The seminar focusses on fundamental aspects of filmaesthetics. Referencing film stills and excerpts from film history the seminar tries to uncover what film and what cinema is.

20:00: film:art 95 at CITY 46, Bremen

Flags emphasize national sovereignty  and mark territorial claims. Flags provide national identity and proclaim loyalties. A programme of experimental film and video shows the agency of flags as expression of territorial power politics, post-colonial conditions, but also of individual forms of resistance.
