The activities “Live Cinema Lab,” our “laboratory” of live cinema, have already started within the Festivals of Live Cinema project.
Czech and Norwegian experts, curators and artists dealing with Live Cinema are meeting in Live Cinema Lab to establish contacts and develop their cooperation. Output of this cooperation will be a series of events in Stavanger (Norway) and in Olomouc and they will be connected with live cinema and the contemporary technologies.
Live Cinema exists in tradition of cinematography, contemporary art and music. “Live Cinema refers to the projects that originate in real time when both audio and image are created. Development of the similar productions is apparent since the end of the 19th century. We are interested in the current state as well as in historical reflection in comparison to the contemporary technological accessibility of moving image.” (Martin Mazanec, PAF programme manager).
What is emphasized within Live Cinema “laboratory,” is visiting studios of multimedia in the Czech Republic and Norway, presentations, arrangement of programme and production of audio-visual performances and installations.
Specific projects, that are being prepared for Screen City festival (15–18 October 2015) and PAF (3–6 December 2015), are discussed by artists and curators.
