“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 by artists representing a broad spectrum of contemporary film and video practices.
