Avignon Festival - Night Route “Fast Movies”

16 July 2011. Published by Benoît Labourdette.

A course at night to discover movies projected on the walls, doors, floors, bas reliefs, windows... in the streets of Avignon.

The films shot with mobile phone, pocket camera or camera are selected by Benoît Labourdette in line with the city, its atmosphere, places and supports projection engaging a true reflection scenic and reclaiming urban space. This fun course, dotted with ephemeral projections, is the opportunity to experience a rare experience: discover a selection of resonating with the site and film surfaces on which they are projected to live a collective experience of cinema outside, feel the atmosphere of the city and create an atmosphere, create relationships unpublished works-spectators-contexts ...

The collection of pocket films includes works by Delbono, Alain Fleischer, Benoît Labourdette...

Movies meeting a neighborhood... Since 2011, I propose “night journey” travelling projections of short films in a district building. No installation, these projections are made using a pico-projector (portable projectors). This is the “mobile projection”. Exploit this new technology yet, these mini projectors that will soon equip our phones, for moments of encounter between works, place, people.

Night courses were held in France and Belgium : Festival Pro Via Mons, Festival d’Avignon, Ecole Normale Supérieure, Screenwriters Festival, Agglomeration Evry, Maison des métallos, Travelling Rennes Film Festival...
