The 2021 online edition of the Solothurner Filmtage
with hybrid events and discussions has been for FILMEXPLORER the opportunity to test its MULTIMEDIA COMMITMENT IN FILM PUBLISHING.
In collaboration with the Solothurner Filmtage, Denise Hasler’s voice and a contribution by Felix Rauh, Ruth Baettig has produced «Das Brot im Kasten
», a hommage to one of the female filmmakers of the programme «Film.Pionierinnen», Marlies Graf-Dätwyler
Ruth Baettig’s video-essay
on Marlies Graf-Dätwyler’s Behinderte Liebe
(1979) is a production (in collaboration with the Solothurner Filmtage) that concretely exemplifies FILMEXPLORER’s interest in the format of video-essays.
The video-essay format that has been object of two discussions of the Solothurner Filmtage’s FOKUS, curated by Hannes Brühwiler «Eloge de la critique – Lob der Kritik»: a MASTERCLASS
by Chloé Galibert-Laîné
, in discussion with Giuseppe Di Salvatore (FILMEXPLORER), and a PANEL
on the video-essay as form of criticism
– discussants: Ruth Baettig (FILMEXPLORER), Johannes Binotto and Catherine Grant.
Faithful to its commitment to short films, FILMEXPLORER has proposed and created – in collaboration with the Solothurner Filmtage – three virtual meetings
, INTERACTIVE STAMMTISCH TOUT COURT
, on the website gather.town, in order to discuss said short films together with the filmmakers.
