Onion City Film Festival 6/23- 6/26

June 15, 2011 | By | Add a Comment

Onion City is one of the premiere international festivals exclusively devoted to experimental film and video.

Onion City was founded in the 1980′s by the Experimental Film Coalition and run by them for many years. Chicago Filmmakers assumed responsibility for the festival in 2001, and expanded the size and opened it up to video work as well as film. It is generally 8-10 programs over four days and features roughly 60-70 works from around the world. Aside from the competition programs, there are occasional special presentations of new or old films of note or guest presentations. Screenings take place at Chicago Filmmakers and other venues around mid-June.

The mission of Onion City is to provide local and regional audiences with an opportunity to view a wide variety of contemporary experimental works, focused on artistic excellence but also with an eye towards representing differing styles, forms, and nationalities.

Onion City will take place at Gene Siskel Film Center for the Opening Night, June 23 at 8pm, and for the remainder of the festival, from June 24-26, it will take place at Chicago Filmmakers.

The lineup for the festival includes:

Maska (2010, 23 min., Video, Poland): The Quay Brothers’ trademark puppet animation is on display in a haunting adaptation of a Stanislaw Lem story about technology and love.

House of Days (2011, 3 min., 35mm widescreen, Austria/Germany): Former Chicagoan Peter Miller turns the domestic sphere on its head.

Zagreb Tram Station (2009, 8 min., Video, Germany): Jürgen Reble combines the chemical and the digital in this roiling abstracted mass portrait of strangers on their business.
