A City is a Cinema

Is it a guided tour or an open-air cinema? With "A City is a Cinema" we are transforming Basel's familiar facades, hidden walls and nameless surfaces into public festival screens. The hop-on-hop-off walk lasts around 100 minutes. We will be showing short films – at times loud and clear, at times nice and quiet, from experimental art films to cunning tomfoolery –tailormade by the short film festival Internationale Kurzfilmtage Winterthur for our city's walls. From the Serra sculpture on Theaterplatz to the the Stadtkino Basel. The film journalist Brigitte Häring will be your tour guide. The Tweaklab team will be running ahead with a handcart to make sure the next projection is perfectly set up by the time the group arrives. Participation is free of charge. Onlookers and gate-crashers are welcome! The Fine Arts Museum Basel is a project partner, providing a film and a wall. And even the Gässli Film Festival join forces with us and projecting a film into Gerbergässlein. Who says that cinema only has one wall? Our cinema has many. And our cinema is the city of Basel!
