A CRITICAL EYE
FOR CRITICAL TIMES

'For it is the critical faculty that invents fresh forms' (Oscar Wilde)

The essay film is doubly an act of criticism. It engages critically with the forms of cinema and at the same time casts a critical eye on the world that cinema inhabits.

The selection of films for this year's edition of the Essay Film Festival showcases a striking, inspirational diversity of cutting-edge practice and charged political critique from around the globe, encompassing video-essay activism, documents of war's impact, historical reconstruction, poetry as anti-colonial gesture, self-portraiture, the diary form, found footage historiography, and meditations on landscape and the often bloody histories layered and rooted therein.
