“Each author gets to disturb the audience, to talk during the screening of his film to cast shadows on the screen, or to flash it with a flashlight.” Makavejev (1970)

Curators Petra Belc and Kaya Erdinç conducted extensive research into the work of the Yugoslav (amateur) filmmakers who participated in the Genre Film Festival (GEFF), an experimental arts festival that took place in Zagreb in the 1960s. GEFF was inspired by a series of discussions under the motto “Antifilm and Us” and took place at the Ciné-club Zagreb. Each new edition of the festival pushed the emancipatory and exploratory potential of film to its limits. Everything was possible and everything was questioned. Rules were broken and a new view of the world was put forward. Referring to the (un)realized performative ideas of the organizers and the structure of GEFF’s program, Belc and Erdinç will revive the ambitions of that time and explore the current possibilities of what was an intensely revolutionary and humanist vision.
