The 8th international festival & symposium is again taking place in Vienna, Austria.
Our emphasis is on the intersection of animation, experimental media, art, exploratory filmmaking and digital culture. This event is combining the inspiring opportunities of an academic conference with the possibilities of a film festival. Since 2011, Under the Radar has been focused on transcending conceptual boundaries to connect international and local artists, scholars, communicators, and distributors. Embracing fine-arts and creative enterprises we like to call this converging function a “confluence.” Come together, exchange, network and enjoy stimulating art and work and research and people.
Under the Radar 2018 will survey and discuss “The Narrative Challenge” from multiple angles.
When you think about a mediated experience, an audio-visual project, animation, art or film production, the question of “the story” is an essential element during development, completion, and promotion of your venture.
Where does a narrative begin, where does it end and is there something like the non-narrative? Can we communicate without packaging abstract ideas into concrete tales?
How do we construct our stories, how do stories construct themselves?
What role does “The Narrative” really play in our interaction? Join the experience.
