From theconversation.com

The anarchist movement – in both its past and contemporary incarnations – is back to the cultural fore, and to such an extent that it echoes the surge in anarchist-themed entertainment before 1914.

The BBC has just aired a highly popular new adaptation of Joseph Conrad’s 1907 novel The Secret Agent. Then there’s Elie Wajeman’s 2015 film The Anarchists. And Bertrand Bonello’s controversial Nocturama, just screened at the 2016 London Film Festival. These three works of fiction probe the societal reasons for terrorism and criminality, holding up a mirror to contemporary anxieties.

This year, Insurgent Projections has the pleasure of organizing the very first Anarchist Film Festival in town May 23 and 24, during the Montréal Anarchist Bookfair. This is why we invite everyone to help us make festival succeed by participating. Submit your films of any length!

These films need to be in line with the principles that we ourselves share with the Anarchist Bookfair

Folding the Black Flag is "an exploration of Nihilist Poetics formed through collaborative installation and an extended series of 'Performance Not-Happenings' from New York City to Miami. The exposition is an attempt to 'fold' both in the sense of pack-up/give-up abandon, and of rehistoricization and temporal revisionism - to actively create a new past by reorganizing and layering its facts (can the Dadaists, for instance, be written onto the Black Panther Party?)..."
