WHAT IT'S ALL ABOUT
We are a Berlin based team who have been working since 2012 around the audiovisual creation seeking to generate co-support channels that reveal and share the productions made in Berlin with those being developed in Colombia. To do this, we have made over the past four years an open call in Berlin and Colombia, receiving hundreds of proposals in the format “less than 15 minutes”.
Our main purpose is to make this artistic, political and cultural exchange a learning process. This idea stems from the desire to communicate through film what happens in two countries distant in territory but often not so distant in expression. For us, breaking borders is important and this project focuses on connecting filmmakers and gather people of all types around moving images to discover what those at 9,000km of distance want to tell them.
Filmouflage has become through the years a platform where film, art installations, illustrations and musical performances meet to deliver an independent and authentic perspective about life, conflict and artistic creation in the tropics.
WHAT HAPPENED IN 2016:
Our environment is alive, it has always been there, around us and even though it tries to make itself get noticed, it often fails to get our attention. But, new attitudes and dynamics that search to reclaim our environment sprout from below. The 4th edition of filmouflage explores new perspectives around the subjects of environment, d.i.y. sustainability and nature and how these are differently integrated in our lives. During the 13th, 14th and 15th of July 2016 Colombian art installations, illustration and short films meet in Berlin to take us on a journey through different ecosystems of the south.
