Cinesonika 4

(90 mins)


The Fourth International Festival of Innovative Sound Design

The theme of this international film festival to celebrate the soundtrack. Usually cinema culture fixates on movie stars, or captivating imagery, or the literary qualities of screenplays. Sound tends to be relatively unvalorized in moving-image making. The intent of CINESONIKA is to give attention to innovative work in the creation of film and video soundtracks, and to give due credit to the importance of audio in audiovisual media.

CINESONIKA 4 will showcase international works of film and video with fascinating soundtracks, idiosyncratic sound design, eclectic scoring and innovative approaches to the sound-image relationship. Comprised mostly of shorts, films will be presented in a series of programs: Documentary & Narrative, Animation, and Experimental. 

Films free to Vancity Theatre members. Membership cards must be shown at the door, or you will be asked to purchase a membership. (Annual membership: $12 comes with a free movie voucher worth $11.)
