Cinémas hors circuits


Welcome to the Cinémas hors circuits site.

Dedicated to independent cinema, Cinémas hors circuits is a project to highlight the work of independent publishers/distributors, cultural activists without whom many films would have disappeared from memory. As active custodians of a significant part of the cinematic heritage, such publishers have to counter the blockbuster mentality of mainstream distribution and the concentration of distribution networks.

To enable both the general audience and professionals to discover the films such independent publishers promote, and to encourage debate around new challenges and opportunities in publishing, Cinémas hors circuits offers:

a portal for independent publishers
a fair: an event entitled Salon du DVD & des éditeurs indépendants de cinéma/The DVD & Independant Publisher's Fair which wich took place in Paris in 2008 and 2009, in Poitiers in 2010 & 2011.

STILL LIVES> Filmarmalade
Alexander Schellow
Germany, 2007
animated drawing

Alexander Schellow’s STILL LIVES, depict a shimmering nocturnal world, populated by anonymous bodies whose presence we sense through the moonlit aura of a ghostly electric fluorescence. By capturing the moment between stillness and life, Schellow’s animated drawings allow us to see this nether world, as one mark nervously shifts into another, as an alien and mournful space.
Alexander Schellow recently exhibited work at Steirischer Herbst Gallery, Graz, The Stuttgart Kunstmuseum, Centre Pompidou, Thessaloniki Biennale and at Ute Parduhn Gallery, Düsseldorf. He also recently completed the book work Storyboard published by Merz Academy and Edition Solitude in 2007. He currently lives in Berlin and teaches at the Metropolitan University, London.
