URBAN/Flux film festival

The URBAN/Flux film festival is an experiment in imagining urban space as the locus of all things possible. It seeks to elaborate alternative, ethically driven ways of living and thinking, doing and perceiving (in) the city, to unexpected creative ends. Through a focus on radically innovative experimental film and art video, it aims to create a bridge between cities worldwide, linking places real and imagined, physical and virtual. The goal is to deploy citiness in and from Africa to dream urban futures planet-wide. 40 filmmakers from across the world come together in this richly speculative endeavour.
