The Radical Film Network is an international network for individuals and organisations involved in politically-engaged and aesthetically innovative film culture. It was founded in 2013 when a group of activists, academics, filmmakers and programmers involved in radical film culture in the UK met to discuss the ways in which they could work together to support its development, growth and sustainability. Since then the RFN has grown rapidly, and now consists of more than two hundred organisations across six continents. Affiliated organisations range from artists’ studios and production collectives to archives, co-ops, distributors, film festivals and exhibition venues, as well as a host of other less easily categorised groups… More information about these organisations is available in the Directory. The RFN’s Mailing List, meanwhile, enables those involved with radical film culture to share information and ideas around the world.
Since its founding in September 2015, the Harun Farocki Institut has worked as a platform for research into Farocki’s visual and discursive practice and as a flexible structure for new projects that analyze past, present, and future visual cultures. The small office in the Silent Green Kulturquartier forms the base station of the institute. The foundation of the HaFI is linked to the goal of developing forms of theoretical and visual work that connect with Harun Farocki’s thinking and cinematic practice in order to continue from there. The principles and procedures of essay film, Marxist image analysis, the activation of images for genuine visual research, the literacy of cinematic seeing, the analysis of subjectivation in technical-military dispositives or the critique of the production conditions of film, television and other visual industries form the basis on which the HaFI conceives and carries out its own projects.
