Purescreen DVD 01 Launch, King’s Arms, Salford, March 18, 2005
Selected by Sophia Crilly & Yuen Fong Ling (Castlefield Gallery): “The films compiled on PureScreen DVD *01 were selected from the entire back catalogue of screened programmes, since PureScreen’s original launch in March 2003. The films were not chosen with a specific curatorial remit in mind, other than to highlight some of the best examples of contemporary artist’s film and video in the UK today. Consequently, many of the films also represent issues that have appeared prevalent within the medium of film and video in terms of artistic, cultural, social or political interests from recent years.”
Purescreen DVD 01 toured to Folly, Lancaster; Experimental Film Today, UCLAN, Preston; Catalyst Arts, Belfast; Itau Cultural, Belo Horizonte, Brazil; Antimatter Film Festival, Victoria Island, Canada; The Residence, London; Radiator Festival, Nottingham.
