European Cinema Uncovered
Alternative Film/Video Belgrade: Award Winners 2012
Introduction via Skype by curator Greg DeCuir, Jr.
In 2012 Alternative Film/Video Belgrade
(Serbia) celebrated its 30th anniversary as the oldest international festival
of avant-garde film and video in Europe. The festival was founded within
Academic Film Center in Belgrade, which has a rich tradition of over 50 years
of non-commercial moving image production and related activities. Every year
Alternative Film/Video Belgrade invites a distinguished and diverse
three-member jury with the task of creating a list of significant achievements
from among the regional and international competition programs at the festival.
This list, the size and shape of which is constructed according to the wishes
of the jury, represents the dynamic and pioneering spirit of the festival and
those visionary films and videos that compose it. Each of the artists on this
list are awarded a residency at Academic Film Center and full production
support in order to realize their newest work. This program presents the films
and videos on the list of significant achievements from 2012, which will be
remembered as a very important year in the history of Alternative Film/Video
