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.


The label film:art covers programmes of  "artistic" films, mainly experimental works, avant-garde films and forms of media art. see all film:art-Events

Trembling Leaves

14:30 Uhr: film:art 93 at CITY 46, Bremen

Other than in feature films in which the depiction of nature mostly serves narration experimental cinema focusses on the aesthetic aspects  of natural phenomena. Whether time lapse shots make the leaves of the trees dance in the beams of sunlight or the clouds drift hastily over a changing sky: the film experience hightens the sensual awareness towards nature. Beyond those offers of bodily immersion in an almost meditative mode there are also films that reflect in a more intellectual way the relationship of human animal and nature in times of the anthropocene. The program assimilates a surreal thunderstorm, the deconstructing of a poem by J. W. Goethe, an essayistic study of a problematic territory and a slightly philosophical desktopvideo.
