Regrouping discussions with Lizzie Borden, Laura Mulvey and William Raban

24 Jun 2016, 10.30am – 12.30pm
Traverse Theatre, Edinburgh

In 1976 Edinburgh International Film Festival hosted two events: the Psychoanalysis and Cinema Symposiumand the International Forum on Avant-Garde Film. Forty years on, this year’s discussions look back at one of the most pivotal moments in the Festival’s history to explore its longstanding relationship with alternative film culture.

Through a series of intimate discussions, this day-long event interrogates the relationship between form and politics, and seeks out the synergies between then and now. Speakers include: Director Lizzie Borden in conversation with LUX Scotland Director Mason Leaver-Yap; Director and feminist theorist filmmaker Laura Mulvey in conversation with writer and lecturer Laura Guy; and artist William Raban in conversation with British filmmaker Sarah Turner.
