Was anderes machen (The Home and the Movie)

In the organizer's words:

silent green presents

Withthe festival Was anderes machen (The Home and the Movie), silent green 2023 takes the archive of the ZDF editorial office Das kleine Fernsehspiel as the starting point for a historical review, a description of the current situation and the question of the future of auteur film with an exhibition, a symposium, a film series and a program of events. For the 60th anniversary of the ZDF editorial office, television and film cultural heritage will be commemorated together for the first time.

The public broadcasting archives are still closed to widespread use, but the digitization of these archives has largely been completed. With the exhibition of Was anderes machen (The Home and the Movie) , we are opening up the archive of the many hundreds of films that were made with the support of the ZDF editorial department Das kleine Fernsehspiel for the first time . A total of 66 films from six decades of film history will be shown on six viewing islands in the concrete hall - works of political, poetic, innovative world cinema as a curated TV program . In addition, research stations, podcasts and a Cinema on Demand option will be offered. Following the principle of the "living archive", as practiced by the Arsenal - Institute for Film and Video Art, a social and transnational discourse space for the examination of urgent contemporary issues will be created.
A temporary TV studio within the exhibition will host daily film screenings and discussions with guests such as Nora Fingscheidt, Massoud Bakhshi, Jorge Bodanzky, Merzak Allouache, Omah Diegu and Edna Politi. There will also be a panel on the editorial history of the Kleines Fernsehspiel andone on models for making broadcasting archives accessible to the public, as well as the performance Homo Is Where the Heart Is by the CHEAP Art Collective.

As part of an editorial pop-up duringthe festival, members of the Kleine Fernsehspiel editorial team will be available for discussions, present the work of the editorial team and hold workshop discussions on various aspects and focal points of the program .
The two-day symposium Situated Stories: Das kleine Fernsehspiel in der Welt will examine the multifaceted role of German television funding in the development of networks and infrastructures of filmmaking in selected international contexts. It will take selected films from the history of the Kleines Fernseh spiel as well as related models of public television film production such as Channel Four, BBC or ARTE as a starting point for a discussion of transnational perspectives on film production, distribution and presentation.
