Film Programme: Short videos from Beirut

Short films from a selection of new and emerging Lebanese artists


The 1990s witnessed the emergence of a generation of independent video makers in Lebanon, due partly to the development of a video infrastructure in Beirut, and to the recently introduced communications and audio-visual departments in Lebanese universities. It was further enhanced by the creation of two non-profit organisations, Ayloul and Ashkal Alwan, to support a new generation of artists. Video production was shaped by two major phenomena: first, the absence of any past tradition of filmmaking in the country allowed artists a certain freedom in working with form, exploring video not as a substitute for film but as a specific medium; and second, the dominance of conventional television language (particularly in the context of war) prompted the exploration of new ways of telling beyond using video to showcase evidence.
