TÄNGBÄNGZOING! Ein ganz besonderes Platzerl auf der DIAMETRALE-Landkarte sind die räudigen kleinen Schwestern des Kurzfilmwettbewerbs, die rotzfrechen und völlig verspulten B-SIDES! Hier tummelt sich ganz besonders eigenwilliges Filmgetier: sinnbefreite Tanzbären, Teufelsbeschwörungen oder Old-School-Sex- Education. Lasst euch von der rauschhaften Bild-Sound-Strömung aus sechs Ländern und 35 Minuten mitreißen! Direkt im Anschluss werfen wir ordentlich „Sound ins Getriebe“ (freiStil): Cosmica Bandida (co/de), DIE FITTEN TITTEN (at), We_are_god (ibk) and Cold Ass Ice (ibk).

Tomas Orrego • US 2023 • 3min • HDV • ND • Österreichpremiere

When hungry, the black gloved tarantula crawls out of its crypt to feed. The pale flesh of innocent bodies it takes into dark corners to ejaculate. Using hand processed 16mm black and white film and a dismantled soundtrack, the atmosphere of a lost artifact is evoked.

Writer, Producer Tomas Orrego Cast Natalie Peracchio

Ada Ardor: Dream Trance

Ada Ardor, Le Capucin • UK 2023 • 3min • MuVi • HDV • Österreichpremiere

A cat discovers it is not allowed anymore one morning. Posters with its own face banned are all over the town and on tv. As the cat sees a monkey putting one of the posters right on its window, the cat looks under a lid it sees on the monkey’s head, and goes on a colourful journey across the monkey’s inflamed subconscious, which sheds some light on its behaviour.

Writer Ada Ardor, Le Capucin Illustrator Le Capuccin Editor Andrey Edelkin

An experimental film. A rollercoaster of emotions from gloom to masochism, violence and remorse. The film was made by scratching, painting and otherwise in different ways abusing old 16mm film material.

Writer, Producer Hannu Nieminen

Useless Eaters

Ian Haig • AU 2022 • 2min • ND • HDV • Österreichpremiere
