Crosscuts is an annual festival for film, art and text, that aims to fill the gap between text-bound academic production and the growing consumption of visual media. With a film as research focus, special invited guests, panels and visitors the festival take on themes within the field of environmental humanities. Join us for the 2019 edition of Crosscuts at Bio Rio in Stockholm, Nov 22-24, and the theme Ruptured Times.
Crosscut comes across as a cutting-edge bridge between academia, the art world, and the public sphere. This is eminently in line with KTH’s best traditions; the school’s motto famously brings together science and art.
Jan Olsson, Professor of Cinema Studies, Stockholm University
The theme for the festival in 2019 is “Ruptured Times”. We are looking forward to a program with films and discussion on the Anthropocene, social movements and decolonization, postcolonialism, gentrification and much more. We are happy to announce that the program includes a film retrospective and keynote by filmmaker/Professor Trinh T Minh-ha on decolonization and environmental knowledge.
In 2019 we will also introduce the Annals of Crosscuts to continue to deepen our engagement with filmic research and theory. Annals is a new peer-reviewed publication format for film-based research. The Annals of Crosscuts is developed to support the use of film and cinema as integral practices in the critical environmental humanities.
