The programming for the festival employs an experimental process that breaks with conventional curatorial authorship and fosters a more democratic spectatorship, enabling audiences to create their own surprise links, chance connections and perceptual analysis. The Usurp Zone5 Film Festival transforms the Usurp Art Gallery into a suggestive interface; a communal, intimate living room in which to be inspired, reflect, debate and share.
Programme supported by Film Hub London. Film Hub London is managed by Film London and a proud partner of the BFI Film Audience Network, funded by the National Lottery. www.filmlondon.org.uk/filmhub
