A programme of live audiovisual work, talks and workshops includes Robotica, which will explore the ethics and social effects of robots and androids, and Code Warriors, which looks at the use of computer code as raw material in making moving image work.
Running programme Wavelength 10 explores techniques from music videos including Massive Attack’s Splitting The Atom, by Edouard Salier, and The Johnny Cash Project, an interactive and collaborative montage that features more than 1000 frames drawn by different contributors.
Extended Play 10 promises ‘a unique visual style’, which will challenge traditional storytelling through animation, organisers say.
Ladymation is to look at animation by female directors, German animation studio Pictoplasma will present guest programme Characters in Motion, and indie label Ninja Tune will provide a video showcase.
Further line-up announcements are expected in the run-up to the festival, which takes place from 10-14 November at London’s BFI Southbank.
