IN ENGLISH. FREE OF CHARGE.
Video essays are short films about film – unique forms of documentary or essayistic found-footage filmmaking. The video essay is both film criticism for a new era and an art form in its own right. It has also been taken up widely in schools and academia as a compelling way of studying film.
Catherine Grant is a video essayist and Professor at the University of London. She will present an overview of the video essay and will talk about her work as a maker, publisher and curator of these works.
