UCSB’s Carsey-Wolf Center to Host Festival of (In)Appropriation

Contemporary found footage films will be screened for the first time in Santa Barbara

Along with the growing popularity of retro clothing and mash-up music, found footage filmmaking has come of age.

Remix filmmakers push boundaries by taking previously existing footage and re-editing it in inventive ways. Like musical mash-ups, found footage filmmaking borrows and remixes video to produce new ideas and meanings not intended by the original filmmakers.

The Carsey-Wolf Center at UCSB will host the Festival of (In)Appropriation from 7 to 9 p.m. Thursday in the Pollock Theater. The event will include free film screenings, a question-and-answer session and a reception.

A screening of the short contemporary films will be followed by a panel Q&A session with filmmakers and the festival’s curators: Jaimie Baron, Andrew Hall and Lauren Berliner.

UCSB’s Carsey-Wolf Center and the Film and Media Studies Department will introduce the art-savvy Santa Barbara community to this new avant garde art form for the first time.

The Festival of (In)Appropriation has been hosted by the Los Angeles Filmforum since 2009.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
