Joshua Mosley's animation Jeu de Paume included in the International Short Film Festival Oberhausen
Joshua Mosley's film Jeu de Paume that premiered in the 2014 Whitney Biennial will screen as a part of an international film competition on May 1st at 12:30 and 10:30 PM in the Oberhausen International Short Film Festival. A discussion with the filmmakers will follow the first screening at 2pm.
The International Short Film Festival Oberhausen has been part of the highly charged field of experimental film and video for over 50 years now, as a catalyst and a showcase for contemporary developments, a forum for what are often heated discussions, a discoverer of new trends and talent, and not least as one of the most important short film institutions anywhere in the world. Some 6,000 films submitted on average per year, around 500 films shown in the festival programmes and over 1,100 accredited industry professionals are proof enough.
In the course of more than five decades, the International Short Film Festival Oberhausen has become one of the world's most respected film events - a place where filmmakers and artists ranging from Roman Polanski to Cate Shortland, from George Lucas to Pipilotti Rist have presented their first films. Oberhausen has managed to instigate various political and aesthetical developments, for instance through the Oberhausen Manifesto, perhaps the most important group document in the history of German film. Careful programming and a pioneering choice of subjects has helped the Festival to build up its exclusive position in an increasingly unpredictable market.
