For four years now the SCHIRN has acted as a forum for national and inter­na­tional film and video artists. In dialogue with the SCHIRN cura­tors, inter­na­tional artists offer in-depth insights into their work and, more espe­cially, into their filmic inter­ests. DOUBLE FEATURE was designed as a plat­form presenting the extremely varied trends and forms of creative expres­sion in the produc­tion of art films and for the juxta­po­si­tion of familiar and not so familiar posi­tions. In 2017 visi­tors can expect to see works by, among others, Eli Cortiñas, Beat­rice Gibson and Mélanie Matranga. More­over, inter­views with the artists will be avail­able on the SCHIRN YouTube channel. 


In her films Pilvi Takala inter­weaves the various film genres and at the same time goes beyond their limits. The director, docu­men­tary film­maker and perfor­mance artist also gener­ally plays the lead, putting herself in very tricky and embar­rassing situ­a­tions, in the course of which social norms and expec­ta­tions are revealed.

Double Feature takes place in the SCHIRN CAFÉ
