LaborBerlin e.V. is pleased to present the 7th edition of DIFFRAKTION, the annual showcase of new film works by its members and special guests.
This year’s DIFFRAKTION welcomes two guests. The Austrian artist-run film lab, Filmkoop Wien will present a program of films made by members of their artist-run film lab and, London-based artist, Sally Golding will perform an expanded cinema piece where light and sound play off each other to create new perceptual possibilities.
LaborBerlin e.V. will show a program of new films and film performances by members, all shot on film and projected in various formats ranging from super 8, 16mm, 35mm to digital. As always the films range widely in thematic approach yet they all explore the unique and ever expanding qualities of analog film.
8 PM – Cinematic Illuminations from Vienna
Works from the Filmkoop Wien presented by Noel Dinse, Viktoria Schmidt and Michel Strümpf
The Filmkoop Wien provides a unique space in Austria for independent work with analog film. Since its foundation in 2008 by graduates of the Friedl Kubelka’s school for independent film, it has created a bridge between the viennese art and film scenes.

11 PM – Light Begets Sound by Sally Golding
Light Begets Sound is a durational performance focussing on the phasing of both 16mm projector and LED lights, articulated through custom software and custom built light sensitive instruments. On the nature of listening and seeing, the piece investigates audiovisual hallucinogenic perception through mixing desk input and feedback, and analog and digital light combinations onto a prepared screen.
