14:00 ANI 2: FROM MOUNTAINS TO MAGGOTS! – ARNOLFINI A
This eclectic mix of films covers a spectrum of styles; from the strange to familiar and the sublime to obscure, each film tells a tale in strikingly different ways. Some will enrage whilst others delight.

12:15 FUTURE ENCOUNTERS WATERSHED C1 PANEL
Future Encounters is a showcase of 10 filmmakers whose work demonstrates a distinctive cinematic and/or artistic vision. We believe they are talent to look out for in the years ahead. During a special event on Thursday 19 Sept at 12:15, Peter Carlton (Warp Films) will lead a discussion with the creative teams, which all have work selected in competition, to find out who they are and where they are going next.
Laws, protocols and routines inform our everyday lives, giving us a sense of security and structure. An uncompromising youth court, a community stifled by an ancient code of retaliation, an insight into offbeat marital routines and a found-footage lecture on the holy trinity of modern capitalism provide the rich canvas of a programme navigating a world dictated by various sets of rules.
Friday 20th September
Franz Treichler, founder of the legendary Swiss band The Young Gods, performs a live soundtrack for an overview of experimental films of the 20th century, screened on 16mm film. For this project, the guitarist has re-scored films by instigators of the Dada Movement (Hans Richter, Man Ray), artists affiliated with the Fluxus movement like James Riddle, and works by Jean Painlevé, Martin Arnold and Stan Brakhage.
