Experimental Shorts: Form & Process

Experimental filmmaking is the sturdy celluloid backbone of our enterprise here at Indie Grits, the unbreakable foundation on which our festival was built. For a quintessentially Gritsian experience, make like a snake and shed your inhibitions about this “exclusive” art form altogether­­–leave those reservations at the theater door and embrace these grainy, gritty, hand processed, brain­-born concept pieces that resurrect Jurassic-era technologies and artifacts (16mm film, Bolex cameras) for your edification and enjoyment. Nothing could be finer than to be in Carolina for a raucous weekend of DIY, southern­-fried experimental filmmaking, so grab your fork and knife and take a bite of this ultra­-rich, life­-sustaining brain food.
