Over its first 8 years, Forum Expanded has shown that concepts such as “experimental film,” “independent film,” “artists film,” “art film,” or “gallery film” are simply not sufficient when it comes to describing the new, increasingly open approaches to film and video production beyond the basic film-art dichotomy. Whether single screen projections or installations, contemporary cinematic works discover radical new paths for creating critical aesthetic languages. Yet the institutional framework is
still split. New funding ideas are needed to support artists and filmmakers who take risks by working in a field that largely remains undefined.
