Excerpts from sheffieldfringe.com
‘The fifth edition of Sheffield Fringe investigates ‘documentary’ film as an art object, where thinking of and trading documentary as an object opens up the possibility of the ‘objectification’ of actuality. (…) Whether regarded as art works or documentaries, the critical stance of the contributions to Sheffield Fringe 2016 lies in the relationship of the filmmakers to the material’.
The festival presents films and videos by a number of international filmmakers; among them are Finish avant-garde filmmaker Mox Mäkelä.
