Dear Fracto friends,

We recently announced the postponement of the fourth edition of FRACTO - Experimental Film Encounter from May to September 2020.

Although it does not come as a surprise, this is not a decision we take lightly. In an effort to do all we can under the current circumstances, part of 2019’s programme was made available to stream directly from our website last week.

Financial support in the arts (specifically experimental film) is constantly in a precarious and vulnerable state. These films were released for public viewing as a gesture by the artists to offer something to everyone in quarantine, a small symbol of support. In return, we would like to send a gesture to the filmmakers, by asking for donations as symbolic support to the artists.

This is our POLITICAL STATEMENT.
The streaming initiative was not only about sharing or showing films, but about clarifying how artists need to constantly strive to meet society's demands without giving anything back. Thank you!

Every contribution makes a difference. All funds will be split evenly between the filmmakers who made their work available to stream.

The deadline for submissions to the 2020 edition has been extended to the 1st of JULY.

PLEASE DONATE HERE

Stay strong and stay healthy & we’ll see you in September,
Your FRACTO team
