Sound, like scent seems to be such a potent carrier of memory, as well as being a powerful influence on the formation of the sense of identity’ David Toop

We sometimes say that a particular piece of music can take us places, bring back memories, reach our soul or simply make us do something involuntarily, such as laugh, cry, move or dance. Equally so, image can provoke a similar response.

Screamstation Fest is a film event that explores that on-going relationship between sound and image in contemporary experimental and narrative cinema.

The selection consists of twenty three films by authors that draw from art, film, media, popular culture and philosophy. It includes work from established artists such as Candice Breitz and Malcolm Le Grice but also introduces work from no less talented less known filmmakers, time-based media artists and the like.

The viewer is invited to constantly re-adjust to the new situation in regards to the sound and image, and that may consequently provoke a better understanding of the subject.

Those who will benefit the most from this event are filmmakers, sound designers, artists, researchers, film students and those invested in multimedia. The event is curated by Zhel Vukicevic, a time-based media artist whose recent work and doctoral research links work on film sound with contemporary accounts of ethics and spectatorship.
