Now for the Painter

1st Prize - Experimental film

The Wojciech Jerzy Has Kraków Film School’s SnapFilm Festival has awarded “Now for the Painter” 1st Prize for Experimental film. SnapFilm Festival is a film competition aimed at filmmakers around the world. It is judged in four categories: fiction, documentary, joke, and experimental and animation.

The digital seascapes of Now for the Painter are a tribute to R.J.W. Turner’s last seascapes. The project title is from Turner’s piece Now for the Painter, (Rope) Passengers Going on Board (Pas-de-Calais), 1827. This reference was Turner’s homage to the Dutch painter Aelbert Cuyp. Forster was intrigued by Turner’s skill with the brush, and his interest in technology, and pondered his likely interest in digital media if he was practicing today. Forster designed Now for the Painter  with a few simple guidelines: the original footage would be manipulated with as few interventions as possible; the “ships” would be made from crumpled pages torn from Art Forum; light and color would be captured over multiple seasons and during different times of the day; and there would be no sound. The result is both haunting and mesmerizing.

This year's festival included four locations with visual arts, two outdoor stages where bands alternating between jazz and rock, an indoor space for classical music and dance, hands on workshops, performance art, demonstrations, and more. Film was housed in the old firehouse where a rear projection screen was visible from the heart of the Festival.
