Images of Intermedia: 13th Annual Images Festival of Independeent Film and Video

by Laura U. Marks

Afterimage, July 2000, v. 28, no. 1, p. 5

Laura U. Marks reviews the 13th Annual Images Festival of Independent Film and Video. She draws attention to its success in achieving a multifaceted program that combines theatrical screenings with installations, performances and conferences, and in doing so accurately reflects the intermedia media moment in which the festival is positioned. Marks discusses programmer Mike Hoolboom's decision to include a broad range of pre-1997 experimental video (and film) work. Marks explains this curatorial act as exhibiting the most successful rather than the most recent work and thereby drawing attention to the lack of exposure the medium of video receives as a whole. In addition, Marks does an in-depth review of works and programs on the schedule that range across disciplines and themes to account for the diversity of the festival, and argue for the necessity to attend it in person.
