HOW TO DISAPPEAR

An anti-war movie in the true sense of the word, searching for possibilities for peace in the most unlikely place of a war game. It’s a tribute to disobedience and desertion – in both digital and physical-real warfare.

SOMETHING TO REMEMBER

A lullaby before the great disaster. Two pigeons visit a zoo without animals, a snail measures his blood pressure at the doctor, in the CERN laboratory something has gone terribly wrong. Six moments from our age, like memories of the world we leave behind.

Kinemastik is an NGO which is focused primarily on independent cinema and music. Founded sixteen years ago, the ethos behind the organisation is to galvanise independent creative activity outside of the constraints of mainstream commercial entertainment.

 

 

Using organic methods, Kinemastik established its firm place within the local cultural scene, and as a festival has put Malta on the map of independent cinema.

In order to exist, subsist and thrive, Kinemastik was motivated by the feedback of all those who attended events, and participated in workshops; it relied on the perseverance and drive of its members, and a loyal following established along the way. The NGO has come a long way since 2004, and is now able to operate through the support of the Arts Council Malta, through the Investment in Cultural Organisations fund.
