Cinemaattic Modern Basque Shorts | Kimuak 20 Years

Guerrilla film collective Cinemaattic is back with the finest contemporary films from Spain and Latin American countries. In May, we pay a well deserved tribute to one of Europe's longest standing distributors promoting short films: Basque Country's 'Kimuak', asking, "How do you make small cinema from a small region in Europe visible world wide?"

The programme includes screenings of historic films and rare classics, alongside contemporary award winning films.

Modern Basque Shorts | Kimuak 2017 Seven short films have been selected for promotion this year with the Kimuak stamp. Now in its twentieth year, Kimuak is an annual event in which a jury selects the best short films made in the Basque Country. This year’s winners were selected from a total of 51 entries.The catalogue features an array of original fiction films, documentaries, and cartoons. Two are in Basque, three in Spanish, one in Portuguese, and one has no dialogue.

The Importance of Kimuak What is Kimuak and why is so relevant? Kimuak is a programme created by the Culture Department of the Basque Government, funded by Etxepare Institute and managed, at first, by Donostia Cultura’s Film Unit, and currently by the Basque Film Archive. Every spring, Basque leader distribution platform Kimuak (‘sprout’ in Basque) selects the best from Basque short film scene, so as to take them to every corner of the world.

The importance of an initiative like Kimuak goes beyond the mere work of selecting the best Basque short films of the year. It is like a school for film directors, a way-station towards feature films and a genre by itself, to which successful filmmakers often return.

At CinemaAttic we work towards the expansion of Spanish short film overseas as we strongly believe in the immense capacity of regional film directors whose works must be relocated from the outskirts of the film industry. It is indeed that isolation inherent to the short film format what we understand gives it its very exclusive nature, its real value.

That is why we work closely with platforms such as Kimuak, establishing partnerships with which the invaluable effort these platforms undertake in supporting marginal works can be mirrored outside their generic domains. We can’t help but being excited with one of the most important initiatives promoting short films not just in Basque Country, but in the whole of Spain.

Damnably Presents: Wussy (US)

Wussy formed in 2001 when retired Stonemason, Chuck Cleaver (formerly of Ass Ponys) and Lisa Walker began playing together as result of a dare. The duo’s first performance was largely unplanned but went without incident, so Mark Messerly was recruited on bass and later Joe Klug on drums. The band’s newest member, pedal-steel player John Erhardt, has enabled Wussy to truly come into its own. Cleaver and Walker share singing and songwriting duties, trading lead vocals, harmonising, and singing in vocal swoops and patterns on top of each other, sharing tales of the supernatural combined with day-in-the-life portraits, both disquieting and tranquil.

Wussy have evolved over the last decade to become forerunners of New Midwestern Psychedelia. The band are known both for their songwriting and varied sonic palette, often drawing comparisons to admitted heroes, Television, Velvet Underground, Crazy Horse and Yo La Tengo. Wussy have recorded sessions for BBC 6Music’s Marc Riley/Gideon Coe and KEXP . They have showcased at SXSW and CMJ , and have supported several tours for fellow Ohioans Afghan Whigs and Heartless Bastards, as well as sharing the stage with bands such as Yo La Tengo, The Breeders, Best Coast, Mudhoney, Shonen Knife, Okkervil River, The Mekons, COME , Wreckless Eric and Jeffrey Lewis.

Recent Press:

Sunday Times“If Michael Stipe Co-wrote songs with Morrissey…then hired Neal Young, Crazy horse and the Cowboy Junkies to play them, and asked Kevin Shields to mix them, then the results would be… a bit like Forever Sounds”

Pitchfork “The album is full of darkly valiant shoegaze, music that is cozy enough to hibernate under.”

The A.V. Club. “Swirling, psych-rock riffs that expand outward seemingly without end”

CLASH MUSIC “There is something strangely unique about their own blend of country tinged grunge pop, combining spiky guitars with some sweet harmonies”

Make Short-films Great Again | Kimuak | The Basque Case

From Regional Cinemas to International Audiences. How did the Basques make it?

This open doors session is aimed at Scottish filmmakers, professionals and individuals involved in the short film industry in Scotland.

As part of our celebration of Kimuak's 20 years supporting Short Films we present the interesting case of the Basque Country, a regional film industry that has carefully promoted the short film side of its cinema.

Some of Kimuak's most iconic Shortfilms will be screeened Wednesday 30th May and Thursday 31st May at CCA Glasgow Cinema.

THE BASQUE CASE

The case of Basque Country is one that deserves study. A case of true respect and public support for local filmmakers at its very first stages. Back in the 90s using the experience of UniFrance, the Basque Government decided to incorporate the production and distribution of short films as a core area of support and national interest. Since 1998, the public funded agency Kimuak selects and distributes internationally the best shorts from Basque short-filmmakers.

Twenty years later they have been invited to present the case all over the world, praised and used as a model for many. How do you make short films from a small region visible world wide? How does the model work? What perks do the filmmakers get? What are the differences between being distributed by Kimuak and doing it independently or through other distribution company?

Txema Munoz, director of the program Kimuak and one of the most well respected professionals in the promotion of short films in Europe visits Scotland to contextualise the setup of Kimuak and disseminate the key aspects of their distribution model.

To understand “the Kimuak case” we pay a well deserved homage, including this open doors session for the interest of Scottish filmmakers, professionals and other film organisations in Scotland.

The importance of an initiative like Kimuak goes beyond the mere work of selecting the best Basque short films of the year. School for film directors. A way station towards feature films. A genre by itself, to which even successful directors return.

The established formula works, proof of this are the regional and other countries' programs that have emerged from the Kimuak model.

What is the origin of the Kimuak initiative? The idea of ​​Kimuak was born at the end of the 90s, at a time when the industry of the short film was professionalized and several authors and titles emerged that later would be of reference. In that decade, the Basque Government granted subsidies to the production of short films, and between 1990 and 1995 it also began to co-produce them, through the company Euskalmedia. In 1997, Amaia Rodríguez, director of creation and cultural dissemination of the Basque Government, and José Luis Rebordinos, director, then, of the Film Unit of Donostia Kultura, saw the need to accompany the short films also in the distribution, since a Once the work was finished, the authors did not have the means to disseminate it. Thus, based on the experiences of Unifrance and the New Zealand Film Commission proposed by José Luis Rebordinos, the Kimuak program was born in 1998, with the aim of promoting, disseminating and distributing the Basque short film both internationally and in the territory itself.

What doors open for those who get their work recognized in the catalog? Being part of the catalog means that authors can show their work in all corners of the world and can be known in the international industry. Kimuak has a database of more than a thousand festivals and its selection reaches the entire planet, which gives the authors a lot of visibility. In addition, when they travel to present the short films they also expand their network of contacts. On the other hand, the significant savings of time and money in the distribution allows filmmakers and teams to focus on their upcoming work.

Queer Classics Orlando

Orlando, 1992

Starring Tilda Swinton in her most enigmatic roll as Orlando; landed gentry of the 1600s, to whom Queen Elisabeth I (played by Quentin Crisp) instructs, "Do not fade. Do not wither. Do not grow old.". Orlando survives 400 more years changing nothing but his/her sex. This beautifully told adaptation of the Virginia Woolf novel by the same name tenderly questions gender, love, life, art, poetry, nationalism and politics of the self. We challenge you not to shed a tear to Jimmy Somerville’s soundtrack or Swinton’s incredible, gender-fluid performance.

RFN68 Transit Arts: How to Thrive

'How to Thrive' is a screening event built around three videos spanning forty years which document group formation on the margins. Communities living outside of the law and beyond social acceptance propose tactics for survival and subversion. Groups of outliers, marginalised by class, gender, and race, embrace alternative pedagogies and seize their own narrative.

James O’Brien’s Black Future (1977) was facilitated by Media in Education Unit of Bradford College and made with a group of mainly West Indian unemployed youth in Bradford. The video imagines an England in 1983 where modern industry has destroyed the labour market leaving millions of young people permanently unemployed and living in controlled ‘welfare zones’. Liz Rosenfeld‘s liz/james/stillholes (2005/2017) follows the artist attempting to pass as a gay man in the covetable environment of cruising glory holes. The hidden-camera piece articulates a strategy for gaining access through a conversation between accomplices. Deborah Stratman’s The BLVD (1999) documents the street drag racing scene on Chicago’s near West Side. Exposing an underground inner-city community and their nomadic experience of place, the video is about obsession, waiting, and speed.

Transit Arts is an itinerant organisation for the exhibition of artists’ moving image, working through public screening programmes and experimental publishing. This screening event is part of the Radical Film Network 1968 Festival and is supported by Curatorial Studio, a project devised by Kirsteen Macdonald and delivered by Scottish Contemporary Art Network (SCAN ). Thanks also to Will Rose at Pavilion, Leeds.

Riverside Music College presents Tiger Selections Launch Party with Edwin Organ, Fauves, Skjor

Edwin Organ, Fauves, and Skjor perform live at CCA on Friday 25th May at the launch of Tiger Selections, a collection of new Scottish independent music. The artists featured on Tiger Selections were selected by students on the HND Music Business course at Riverside Music College, in Busby, Glasgow. As part of their course, the students run an independent record label (Little Tiger Records) and actively engage in the A&R process, listening to new Scottish artists breaking through. This feeds into the students' academic learning about the creative processes, through to the legal requirements associated with recording and publishing copyright registration.

Tiger Selections is an exciting compilation of Scottish artists, which reflects the eclecticism that currently manifests itself in Scottish independent music. The Little Tiger students have been involved in the mastering, design, administration, and distribution processes, liaising with industry professionals in the process.

We hope the attention gained by Tiger Selections will shine a light brightly on both the artists' and the students' creativity.

Slow Food Youth Network Scotland Squid Inc. Workshop with Eduard Pagès Rabal

An artistic and gastronomic experience based on three elements: the squid, the ink and the paper.

First, we'll learn about Gyotaku, a traditional Japanese printing technique formerly used by fishermen to advertise their catch-of-the-day at fish markets.

After that, we'll be ready to make our own squid gyotaku, using squid ink and Asian handmade paper.

At this point, we'll prep our squids so they are ready to eat! The classic recipe of deep-fried squid, calamari, will be adapted by utilizing the squid's ink in the batter before frying.

The workshop is run by Eduard Pagès, an artist from Capellades, a small village of central Catalonia, often considered one of the cradles of paper culture in Europe.

He explores and promotes food biodiversity and sustainability through the artistic possibilities of nature printing and hand papermaking.

During the last years, Eduard has performed many gyotaku workshops around Catalonia in a wide range of venues, from design universities to food hubs and markets. He is a frequent collaborator of Slow Food Barcelona and has brought the art of gyotaku to some Slow Food main events: Salone del Gusto (2016), Slow Fish (2015, 2017)..
