Frieze Film 2008: Road Movie

Frieze Film 2008 announces Road Movie, an experiment in film making, authorship and dispersal made in response to the way in which digital platforms such as YouTube have made film a medium freely available
to all.

Road Movie will be a film made by artists and filmmakers in response to an open invitation issued by Frieze Film. Road Movie will be produced and distributed on the Frieze Film 2008 group on YouTube at www.youtube.com/group/friezefilm2008 , and on the Frieze Film website www.frieze.com/film . The final result will be a film made in an entirely new way: the first multi-authored fractal film assembled from the sum of its submitted parts.

Inspired by Cormac McCarthy’s 2006 novel ‘The Road’, Frieze Film will not have a conventional narrative: in addition to submitting original material visitors to YouTube will be able to download and refashion existent clips, spurring a chain-reaction of multiple narratives and occurrences: Road Movie will be wholly individual and collective.

Frieze Film will be shown in Channel 4’s admired ‘3 Minute Wonder’ slot during the week of Frieze Art Fair from Monday 13 October to Thursday 16 October at 7.55pm.
