The 7th edition of FRACTO Experimental Film Encounter is supported by the Institut Français Deutschland and the Franco-German Youth Office, and it is organised in cooperation with Labor Neunzehn, ACUDMACHTNEU, Occulto and Lightcone.
It has also been made possible by our crowdfunding campaign on Startnext; the whole staff would like to express their gratitude to all contributors.
Fracto Experimental Film Encounter is a four-day film festival held mainly at Kunsthaus ACUD, an independent art center founded in 1991 in East Berlin. Fracto is one of the few festival in Europe whose purpose is to promote the recognition and relevance of avant-garde and experimental film practices. The festival has two sections, a historical and a contemporary one, to create a survey of the experimental film scene and an opportunity to enrich it with novel perspectives and voices. As a film discourse, generally absent from mainstream distribution and reception, it has become a point of reference for those who share an interest in the singularity of the medium, artistic practice, and experience that avant-garde cinema displays.
