“The highest revelation-per-event ratios of any festival in New York”

Film Comment

“The reason you attend a festival like Migrating Forms is to break preconceptions about what film is and can be.”


Bringing together moving image work from a wide range of venues—from film festivals and biennials to museums and microcinemas—Migrating Forms (Dec 11—17) bridges the gap between the film and art worlds by presenting a diverse collection of programs in the common context of the cinema. Celebrating its fifth year at its new home at BAMcinématek, the festival includes new work and retrospective screenings representing a broad spectrum of contemporary film and video practices.
