ATA Film & Video Festival [us San Francisco]

The 5th Annual Artists’ Television Access Film & Video Festival celebrates original, independent and underground film & video with screenings, installations and workshops :: October 19-23, 2010 :: San Francisco, CA.

Thursday, October 21, ATA will screen the first of two shorts programs. Titled “Human Nature,” the program explores the relationship between our natural environment and consciousness. The screening includes films and videos by Paul Clipson, Sam Barnett, Bill Brown, Patricia McInroy, Gina Carducci & Mattilda Bernstein Sycamore, Vera Brunner-Sung, Karl Lind, John Palmer, and Maite Abella. The shorts will be followed by the ceremonial smashing of a piñata.

On Friday, October 22, the second festival shorts program,“Lo-Fi Future,” explores futuristic landscapes and lo-fi culture. This program includes films and videos by Kathleen Quillian, Whitney Horn & Lev Kalman, Sylvia Schedelbauer, Jeff Guay, Zachary Epcar, Bryan Boyce, Jesse McLean, and Kerry Laitala. Chromadepth 3D glasses and chromatic jello shots will be provided.

Two hands-on workshops will be offered this year. Local filmmakers Kerry Laitala and Craig Baldwin will offer workshops on Tuesday, October 19 and Saturday the 23rd, respectively. Kerry’s workshop, Lightstruck, on hand processing 16mm film, will be held in SOMA, at the Rayko Photo Center, the festival’s Lab sponsor. The workshop will give participants the opportunity to create cinematic photograms by hand and see their creation as a festival trailer on screening nights.

On Saturday, October 23, Craig Baldwin will share his expertise in the use of archival 16mm film material through his “Flix Remix” show-and-tell session. The workshop will include technical instruction and must-see exemplary material. To sign up for these workshops go to http://festival.atasite.org.

Local artists will be providing two installations, which will be presented in ATA’s gallery. Sam Manera will exhibit “THE BOX, aka, The Multiplicity of Perception”, an interactive multimedia installation. And Shalo P will present “Liquid Light,” a piece that surveys the digital apocalypse and embellishes it with rainbows.

Also, during the month of October, the ATA Window will project a selection of experimental shorts, visually stunning pieces and innovative animations. These projections, visible from dusk until midnight on Valencia, near 21st Street, include work by Patrick Bergeron, Charles Fairbanks, Cecilie Bjørgås Jordheim, Zachary Iannazzi, Nightmare City, Ben Popp & Kenny Reed, Nancy Jean Tucker, and Maarit Suomi-Väänänen.

ATA is located at 992 Valencia near 21st Street. Doors open at 7:30pm every night. Screenings start at 8:00pm. Tickets are $7-$10.

The ATA Film & Video Festival is dedicated to celebrate and support underground film exhibiting every year 2 original ensembles of short works by emerging and established film and video artists from all over the world. The festival also includes installations in our Mission District storefront gallery, a reception for the filmmakers, and workshops.

Throughout the year, work from the festival is broadcast to the San Francisco community on ATV, ATA’s weekly cable-access television show, and screened in other national and international venues.
