Cracking the Frame Presents is a curated program of film screenings, artist talks, presentations, workshops and special events entirely dedicated to art documentaries and artists’ films.
The aim of CTFP is to showcase critically acclaimed award-winning documentaries and exploring the critical contexts and shifting domains of documentary film and visual arts. Through special screenings, public encounters and participatory programs CTFP invites both wider audiences and arts professionals to discover art documentaries and films directed by visual artists.
CRACKING THE FRAME PRESENTS develops from the monthly film series by the same name established in 2011 in cinema Rialto in Amsterdam and is the pilot for a new multidisciplinary platform dedicated to documentary film and visual arts. Through the establishment of a network of collaborations between cultural institutions in The Netherlands and abroad, the platform aims at organising carefully curated program of co-presentations to invite broader audiences to discover documentaries dedicated to the life and creative process of artists from different disciplines (visual arts, photography, dance, literature, theatre...) and the work of visual artists that chose the medium of film to investigate reality as an object of study.
