This year’s OUTPOST Open Film features twelve artist members based in the UK and internationally, each of whom submitted one moving image work that would function in an end-to-end screening format. The programme brings together themes that emerged from the submission process: the use of text features prominently, from the hookup web space of Chatroulette to the dismembered voiceover, from lip-syncing the famous to the animated political slogan. The programme is in two parts, both of which are 40 minutes long.
