We have been organizing film screenings since 2016, mostly in the gallery space of 📍The Grey Space In The Middle. Our aim is to provide a platform for (experimental) filmmakers around the world, in order to support (better) access to films that ordinarily seem to be missing in the regular (Dutch) cinema landscape. We also started a new series at Filmhuis Den Haag called Glued & Screwed, an evening program where we create a bond between exciting shorts by emerging artists.
To what capacity do the existing platforms through which we watch modern day film(works) still provide optimal viewing conditions? In what way do they empower or obstruct the film or (film)maker? We research how film is distributed and published in this day and age and playfully explore alternative ways of presenting film.
In order to offer an alternative (online) movie-going experience to the usual ‘browse and press-play’ model commonly found in streaming services, we initiatied online cinema space 🔗All In This Together. In collaboration with buurmen and with support from Stroom Den Haag, we closely collaborate with (film)makers to present each film in its own uniquely developed environment.
