The Exceptions: Three Angles on the Value of Prestige

Mousonturm Saal


Keynote with Jason Fox, Juliano Gomes, Stefan Tarnowski, Genevieve Yu.

Yet, when it comes to the European prestige festival circuit, what counts for filmmakers is being selected. And being accepted is the exception. European prestige documentary festivals play an outsized role in normalizing the aesthetic terms and political conditions of global documentary exhibition. The relationships between the formal terms and political consequences that prestige festivals condense is the topic of this collective keynote event. It investigates how local production and exhibition contexts link up with on and off-screen global flows and examines the relationship between the social sites of particular festivals and the formal terms these festivals have championed.
