Diametrale – Filmfestival for experimental, humouristic absurd movies

Useless & beautiful

Welcome to the oasis of the absurd, the refuge of the fantastic, the paradise of the most interesting mix: beautiful-dorky! DIAMETRALE opens its doors for the 6th time and your synapses for a deep-sea dive in the direction of useless and beautiful. Jump with us into the refreshing water of unusual moving image worlds beyond cinematic, aesthetic & societal conventions and dream in the cinema darkness, what is possible behind the supposed everyday logic. Along the itinerary lie insular rave temples and Japanese pink musicals, micro-horror and dark teenage nostalgia, funny and pleasurable short film kaleidoscopes, meaty talks and lectures, regionally grown film blossoms and fluid-poetic gender glitter landscapes. A film festival for all those who like to be surprised and celebrate the absurd with us, because “absurdity is the only possible way.” (TB)

DIAMETRALE film festival is organized by DIAMETRALE – Verein zur Förderung experimenteller und komischer FilmKunst – and Kulturkollektiv Contrapunkt , in collaboration with Leokino Innsbruck .
