July 10, 2009 - August 8, 2009
Opening Reception: July 10, 7-10pm
Gallery Imperato is pleased to announce the very first Imperato Film Fest, a group exhibition of short films. Professional and amateur filmmakers, video artists and enthusiasts from across the globe were invited to submit entires under ten minutes in length. Submissions came in from Canada, France, the Netherlands, and across the U.S., allowing for an interesting and diverse group of artists. The exhibition will feature short videos and films in a variety of genres including narrative, documentary, experimental, animation and multi-media.
Set up in true exhibition style, the films will be displayed on individual pedestals and viewing screens around the gallery. Viewers have the freedom to pick and choose which images are enticing enough to listen in on. Viewing stations are conveniently equipped with headphones to prevent the disruption of outside noise. The line-up of artists includes Corrine Bot, Christine Chin, Bill Domonkos, Matthias Egger, Laura McClanahan, Joe Parker, Gautam Rao, Carl Stevens and Celine Trouillet.
