Originated in 2022, the Vnutri [Inside] festival brings together films made by amateurs and independent artists from Russian regions. It aims to create a parallel space of expression in response to the centralization and institutionalization of film production in Russia.
Vnutri reexamines the normative frameworks of cinema and curation, considering them as institutional concepts. It operates without a competitive basis, posing questions about the exemption of aesthetic criteria in film selection, exploring unconscious processes, memory work, and archive. It establishes a space where watching found footage and a film made by a kid is possible, along with a spotlight on debuts and experiments.
