Fluxus 2010 celebrates ten years with exhibition at MIS-SP and a new  
40 films, from 14 countries, in competition

Both a product and a reflection of the technology of its times, Fluxus  
– International Film Festival celebrates the 10th anniversary of its  
first edition. Born in the environment of new technologies, under the  
signs of aggregation, portability, mobility, interaction and the  
democratic nature of the medium, Fluxus has been created in the  
hopeful atmosphere of the 2000's, which conceived the Internet as a  
promising channel to the audiovisual exhibition as well.

Now, in 2010, Fluxus proposes a new challenge to the cinema  
exhibition, joining the Internet and the Museum: Fluxus will take  
place simultaneously in its website – www.fluxusonline.com – and at  
the São Paulo Museum of Image and Sound (MIS-SP), where the Fluxus  
Gallery will be installed. The Internet and the Museum challenge the  
spectator to see, to share and to pass through this flow of moving  

The Fluxus Gallery, which will occupy the exhibition hall of MIS-SP  
between April 23rd and June 20th, will provide the possibility of a  
collective exhibition space, a movie-oriented place composed by 12  
screens, which will allow the spectator to have simultaneous views of  
all the films in the Festival. Exclusively at the Fluxus Gallery,  
there will be also a space devoted to a retrospective that will  
present 14 films of past editions of the Festival. Renowned artists  
have been invited to the event, such as Seoungho Cho, Anney Bonney,  
Anouk de Clercq and Cao Guimarães, among others.

The experience of the transposition of the festival from the  
conventional movie theaters to the Internet, and from the latter to  
the Museum, aims at bringing to the real world possibilities already  
found in the virtual universe. The visitor will be able to move among  
screens, to choose which film to watch, to shift from one to another.  
Fluxus wants to extend the duration of a film festival, always so fast  
and urgent, so that, during these two months at MIS-SP, spectators  
will be able to take their time to watch, re-watch, and make their  

Fluxus 2010 brings 40 films in competition. They have been produced in  
14 countries and selected among 1,200 film applications for the  
Festival. The public will choose the best film of Fluxus 2010 at the  
website www.fluxusonline.com.

All kinds of movies are represented at the competitive section of  
Fluxus 2010. The fictional cinema shows up not only in its traditional  
narrative form – such as in the German 'The Package' or in the Spanish  
'Entwined' – , but also in hardly conventional productions, as it is  
the case of the first short film of the French actor Grégoire Colin,  
the mysterious 'Fox Bay'; of the Spanish cult movie 'The Attack Of The  
Robots From Nebula-5'; of the Malaysian indie movie 'Love Suicides';  
or of the dramatic 'The Bitter Taste of Chocolate'. The aesthetic  
experimentation, one of the distinguishing features of the Festival,  
can be also seen in movies such as 'The Earth Under My Feet', by the  
young French director Sophie Sherman, or the Taiwanese 'Diary  

Fluxus also presents the animated cinema with its wide spectrum of  
techniques and styles. There are 15 animations, every one different  
from each other: the world of a man and his dog in the beautiful  
'Clouds, Hands', by the award-winning Italian director Simone Massi;  
the animated travel log of a journey to a new world in 'Madagascar';  
the black sheep of the family in the Finnish 'The Unplugged Son'; or  
the underground world of strange creatures in 'The Silence Beneath The  

Eleven Brazilian films participate in the competitive section. The  
highlights are the last work of the award-winning video artist  
Carlosmagno Rodrigues, 'Andromeda – The Girl Who Smoked Soap' (his  
sixth film to take part in Fluxus), and a new generation of Brazilian  
directors, such as Bruno Jorge, with his documentary 'The Barons';  
André Mielnik, from Rio de Janeiro, with 'Rise Sofia'; and Gabriel  
Martins, from Minas Gerais, with 'At The End Of The World'. Another  
film to pay attention to is 'Shadow's Sight', which marks the debut in  
direction of the photographer Fabio Cancado, from Minas Gerais.

At the website of Fluxus 2010 – www.fluxusonline.com –, besides of  
watching films, the spectator will be also able to make his or her  
favorite movie lists, to share, to comment and to vote on his or her  
favorites. The website will be online on April, 22nd.
