Dates: 14-18 October 2009 | Location: Utrecht

Impakt Festival in the beautiful Dutch city of Utrecht has been going for 20 years but remains resolutely at the forefront of film and media art events – it’s one of the most considered and interesting events around.

This year is no exception. The usual Panorama screenings provide a unique overview of current international practice. And alongside these, Impakt’s Director Arjon Dunnewind has invited Brussels based curators Stoffel Debuysere and Maria Palacios Cruz to put together a substantial and very exciting programme of screenings, concerts, exhibition, performances, and a conference.

‘Accelerated Living’ focuses on changing notions of time and speed – and how the tyranny of the clock has given way to a much more complex array of diverging rhythms, cycles and tempos through which we navigate our lives.

Highlights include:

Thomas Könner’s ‘opera digitale’ performance, The Futurist Manifest
performances by Guy Sherwin, Bruce McClure, Thomas Brinkmann
a 24 hour ‘stretched’ peformance of Beethoven’s 9th by Leif Inge
The exhibition includes installation works including Jonas Dahlberg and Thomson & Craighead
outdoor screenings by Thorsten Fleisch, Mark Formanek & Datenstrudel
Accelerated Living screenings include works by William Raban, Michael Snow, Malcolm Le Grice, Rose Lowder, Kurt Kren, Bruce Conner, Jeanne Liotta, Leslie Thornton, Pavel Medvedev, Mark Lewis, Marie Menken, Philip Hoffman
