Film Screenings

WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) has been organizing Film Screenings since 2016 at The Grey Space In The Middle. Our aim is to provide a platform for relevant (experimental) filmmakers around the world, in order to support (better) access to films that ordinarily seem to be missing or unavailable in the (Dutch) landscape.

With the public domain being closed until further notice, we decided to take a sidestep with a new series — All In This Together — which will take place in your web browser.

Playful Events

Besides the (more) traditional film screenings, we also organize experimental screening events — often in collaboration with artists, writers, designers and (film)makers. These events are attempts to reconsider the way that we look at film today, whether it’s in the cinema, in a museum, on our phones while in the train, or at home on our television/laptop. To what capacity do the pre-existing platforms (still) provide optimal opportunities for modern day film(works) to be ‘viewed’, and to what capacity do they empower or obstruct?

All In This Together

All In This Together is a ‘cinema-on-demand’ (COD) platform that offers an alternative online ‘movie-going’ experience than the usual ‘browse and press-play’ environment commonly found in ‘video-on-demand’ (VOD) platforms. By also programming the environment in which we get to see the films, we aim to offers space for (film)makers who’s work function in-between contemporary art and cinema.
All In This Together is a collaborative effort between cinema collective WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) and artist-run studio buurmen, who specialize in internet based projects.
