Miss the discontinued New York Underground Film Festival? You don’t have to. Former NYUFF programmers Nellie Killian and Kevin McGarry bring you Migrating Forms, an experimental film and video festival running Wednesday April 15th through Sunday April 19th. The screening of Josephine Meckseper’s 2008 video 0% Down alone provides enough reason to attend the festival — a highlight in our 2008 New Orleans, Prospect 1 Biennial visit — though there are plenty of other artists not to be missed. Phil Collins's Zasto Ne Govorim Srpski (na Srpskom) [Why I Don't Speak Serbian (in Serbian)], 2008, Amie Siegel's “ciné-constellation” DDR/DDR, 2008, shown at last year's Whitney Biennial, and City of Production (2008), directed by Laurent Gutierrez and Valérie Portefaix are just a few names in an outstanding lineup.
A pass to the entire festival will cost you 50 bucks– a steal considering the number of films to be seen. However, be the third Art Fag City commentor on this post and we’ll give you a pass for free. That means you’ll have the opportunity to do a little e-fluxing this Saturday, (video rental at 3:15, and Khiam at 5), and then kill off those e-flux brain cells (in order to remain a functioning member of society) by attending their Internet Tube Time competition in the evening, ALL FOR FREE. Act fast, or someone else will take your prize.
