The 2016 Alchemy Film and Moving Image Festival programme has launched! Alchemy Film and Moving Image Festival is Scotland’s international festival of experimental film and artists’ moving image. Taking place from 14th to 17th April, the 4-day festival is held in the ex-industrial mill town of Hawick in the Scottish Borders region of Scotland. Alchemy is one of the UK’s only festivals dedicated to experimental and artists’ film, and draws an international crowd of filmmakers and fans of the genre.
This year’s theme is the ‘Altered State’ including notions of transcendence, political transition and material change, mental or spiritual transformation, and excavations of contemporary counterculture.
