2010 Migrating Forms: The Trailer

By Mike Everleth ⋅ April 22, 2010

It’s a nature video! It’s an experimental video! It’s the official commissioned trailer for the 2010 Migrating Forms experimental media festival! That’s right, it’s all three!

The second annual Migrating Forms will run at the Anthology Film Archives in NYC on May 14-23 and, once again, the festival has asked a video artist to craft an official trailer. This year they chose Leslie Thornton, a filmmaker who has studied with the likes of Hollis Frampton, Stan Brakhage, Paul Sharits and Peter Kubelka. Her work has previously screened at the Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney Biennial, the Rotterdam International Film Festival, the Pacific Film Archive, last year’s Migrating Forms and other prestigious locations around the world.

Migrating Forms hasn’t released their official schedule yet, but as soon as they do, I’ll put it up on the Underground Film Journal. (Update: Here’s the full schedule.)
